Fans eagerly awaiting the long-gestating Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will have to wait a little longer, with The Weinstein Company announcing that the film has been put back until 2014.
The sequel had initially been expected to arrive in US cinemas in October 2013, but has now been given a new release date of 22 August 2014.
The announcement doesn’t specify the reason for the delay, only that Robert Rodriguez’s plans of opening two films within weeks of each other has been scuppered.
Machete Kills is still expected to arrive later this year, but the news will come as a blow to those who have been patiently waiting for another Sin City movie since the first one was released in 2005.
Hopefully this will be the last of the delays, and we can look forward to seeing Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Eva Green head up the new-look ensemble in 2014. And at least we’ll have that Machete sequel to tide us over in the meantime…
