Rosario Dawson on Sin City 2
Posted 06.22.08 by reelz
Actress Rosario Dawson is here at Cinevegas promoting her upcoming movie, Explicit Ills, and being honored by the film festival. We caught up with her on the red carpet to see if she'd heard anything from Robert Rodriguez or Frank Miller on the highly anticipated sequel to Sin City, Sin City 2.
"Yes, it's not happening yet," she told us. "I think there's a lot of want for it to happen, but it's kind of an issue of films right now are a little difficult to be getting made so it depends on the success of other ones that are out, I imagine."
Dawson says fans can help, though. "Just keep putting the word out right now that we want it to happen."
In the meantime, she is still keeping busy with two high profile movies coming out later this year -- Eagle Eye with Shia LaBeouf and Seven Pounds with Will Smith, in which she said she plays a woman dying of congenital heart disease.
The actress is also dabbling into creating her own comic book, The Occult Crimes Task Force, with family friend David Atchison. "[He] developed the actual original story and always had me in mind for the lead character and kind of wrote her around me," she explained. "When he got an artist involved and he could develop it a bit more, he brought it to me and asked if it was something I was interested in being a part of."
While the two have sold The Occult Crimes Task Force, they are contemplating taking it in a different direction, possibly as a webisode, Dawson said.
