Rosario Dawson Wants Sin City Sequel Soon

Rosario Dawson in Sin CitySin City actress Rosario Dawson said that she needs the sequel to happen soon if she’s going to fit into the barely-there outfits.

The 31-year-old actress - who played prostitute dominatrix Gail in the first movie adaptation of the graphic novel - explained while she is keen to work on a sequel, director Robert Rodriguez needs to start filming soon or she will feel too old for the skimpy costumes associated with the character.

“The last time I saw Robert Rodriguez was a month ago and he really wants to make Sin City 2 happen. I said, ‘I understand you’ve been taking your time, but if you want me to wear the outfit that fits into one hand, dude. I’m not getting any younger.’”

The star also admitted she is grateful for her unusual looks - which are a combination of her Puerto Rican, Afro-Cuban, Native American and Irish descent - as some of her more conventional-looking friends struggle to find acting work: “I have friends of mine who are actresses, who all have blonde hair and blue eyes, tell me they think I am going to work more than them. One of my friends in particular - and she’s a pretty big actress - said, ‘There are a million girls who show up who look just like me every single day in Los Angeles fighting for the exact same job.’”


Chris Noth: Sex and the City Movies are Over

Sex and the City 2

Given Sex and the City 2’s dismal opening weekend and horrible reviews, this announcement should come as no surprise: there will be no more sequels. At least, not according to Chris Noth.

“It’s over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it. Your magazine f**king killed it,” the

bitter angry realistic pessimistic

actor declared recently to New York Magazine.

“It’s like all the critics got together and said, ‘This franchise must die.’ Because they all had the exact same review. It’s like they didn’t see the movie,” Noth, who played Mr. Big in the series, added.

So what do you think of Noth’s comments? Are you glad SATC is finally being put to rest—or are you holding out hope for another round?

Sherlock Holmes Sequel to Shoot in October

Jude Law on the set of the first Sherlock HolmesSherlock Holmes 2 will start shooting earlier than planned. Filming for the -directed sequel had originally been due to take place in December, but now Jude Law - who played Dr. Watson in the first movie - says cameras could now start rolling in October

“It looks likely that we’re going to shoot the second in October,” Law said.
However, Jude says he doesn’t know the storyline yet but is looking forward to seeing what novel about the detective Ritchie and his team are going to adapt to the big screen: “I don’t know yet where the story will go, but there are a lot of Sherlock Holmes novels to choose from.”

Although the first Sherlock Holmes movie - which also starred - was successful at the box office, Jude insists it didn’t bother him whether it was or not. “I had so much fun making Sherlock Holmes that the question of how much money it would make just wasn’t one of my priorities. Of course I was really pleased it was such a success but mostly because that will give me the opportunity to work with Robert and Guy again.”

Angelina Jolie Wanted Mr. and Mrs. Smith Sequel

Mr. and Mrs. Smith wanted to star in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith sequel, but there was no original plot idea. The actress, who met Brad Pitt on the set of the 2005 movie, admits she and the actor had considered reprising their roles as married assassins but were not happy with any of the potential storylines they were presented with.

“People have tried to come up with a sequel. And it’s strange: do we have kids in the movie? We’ve thought about that, but it becomes personal now that we actually have kids. And if we work on it, we pull from our own life, which is funny to us, but you feel strange sharing too much. We did ask somebody to look into Mr. & Mrs. to see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn’t anything original. It was just, Well, they’re going to get married, or they’ve got kids, or they get separated. Never great.”

The Salt star, however, admitted she would love to work with Brad again, but doesn’t think people would want to see them play a couple:

It’s a dark day in the musical movie genre: 2 is dead.

“That got killed,” director reported of the planned sequel. “I was so happy with the first one, let’s leave well enough alone. It’s all good.”
