SIN CITY MOVIE UPDATE
Robert Rodriguez said that working with Frank Miller as a co-director on Dimension Films' Sin City movie went very well.
"People wonder how we worked together. We both seem to have strong personalities," he said. "But my goal was to make Frank Miller's Sin City and that was his goal. I really understood where we was coming from. And when in doubt, go by the book. I made him stick by the book more than he wanted."
Rodriguez said Miller took to directing quickly.
"Having been a cartoonist, it's just like drawing," Rodriguez said. "Especially with the way we're shooting against green screens, it's like working with layers. And he picked it up in no time. He was already talking all this tech-talk and setting cameras and directing the actors. It really did work."
"Robert and I are very serious about our work, and we work very hard," Miller said.
The trailer for Sin City debuted online from MoviePhone on Monday, showcasing cast members Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jaime King, Jessica Alba, Nick Stahl, Benicio del Toro, Rosario Dawson, Clive Owen, Brittany Murphy, Alexis Bledel, Josh Hartnett and Elijah Wood.
