Director Robert Rodriguez's appearance at San Diego Comic-Con was chocked full of news on upcoming projects, including sequels to Sin City and Machete. Here's what he had to say about Sin City 2, which might finally happen this year, possibly in 3D.

"If Sin City 2 happens, it'll happen this year. I'd also love to do that in 3D - an idea that would translate really well to that format."

Robert Rodriguez also indicated that Sin City 2 will incorporate the graphic novel volume A Dame to Kill For, and two brand new stories written by Frank Miller, one of which is entitled The Long, Bad Night.

Machete is actually getting two sequels, according to Robert Rodriguez, who thanked the fans at his Hall H appearance for supporting the movie. Both sequels have been given the green light by Fox Searchlight, with the first sequel entitled Machete Kills.

"You guys were great about supporting Machete. The second one we're going right into now, Machete Kills."

"space opera, a machete-shaped lightsaber. Machete kills in space."

    Yeah, I'm all for a Sin City sequel, wish it had already been done really but Machete isn't as important to me. I'm sure I'll check it out eventually though.

    Bull. Rodriguez has been promising Sin City 2 for like six years now and nothing has happened. I will believe it once I see it.

    @SomethingMore Sin City had way more than Alba working for it. Rourke, Owen, Willis, Dawson, Bledel, and Wood were all excellent in the film.

    @jimthar ur right, he's starting too many movies and he'll be too busy, and sin City 2 will have to be put on hold.

    who here wants to bet that he does machete first and that SC2 languishes in development while he drifts off to do HEAVY METAL 2 and forgets SC2.

    God 6 years for a sequel is too long... then again not many movies do well after more than a decade wait for a sequel.. take for example INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL....sigh =/

    Key word: If. That isn't confirmation in the least. Until it happens, it's still a dream. As for Machete, I don't care in the least. Sin City 2 is the only priority Rodriguez should have.
