Robert Rodriguez Talks New Sin City Technology, When We'll Get Fire And Ice

Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez met with the Television Critics Association about the launch of his new television network, El Rey. El Ray is launching with a TV series based on Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn, but Rodriguez is still in the movie business with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For due out this August. Sin City was a groundbreaking film, using green screen to create a world that looked like Frank Miller’s graphic novels. Starting the sequel seven years later, technology can bring us even deeper into that world.

“Oh, the technology has gotten much better,” Rodriguez said. “We shot in 3D so it’s going to be as if you’re completely immersed in the Sin City world.”

The look of Sin City is striking but what we really want is to see Marv, Hartigan, Nancy and Goldie again. “What’s really great is just the stories and the characters. When you see the first trailer, you’re going to be, ‘Okay, I want to go there.’ You so much want to go back to that world and I think that’s what I really love about TV. When we create something, we’ll be able to just keep people in that world because they love it.”

The years of delays between Sin City movies also illustrated for Rodriguez the benefits of doing series television. “People are upset they have to wait so long, seven years for another Sin City. If we’re going to make something and be innovative and create something really cool, let’s just keep it going so people can make that part of their diet.”

Rodriguez also has a movie adaptation of Fire and Ice in the pipeline, to be filmed using Sin City technology. He confirmed that he will make that movie, after his next one. “Nerveracker and then Fire and Ice.”
