No...the real story is pretty ******* stupid. Robert Rodriguez was the director, right. Well, his wife is loaded. He married good money. She funded his whole little Rodriguez-land, Troublemaker Studios, where he makes all his stuff basically at home, even though half of it busts at the BO. She produces and pays for everything. Pure sugar mama status.
Everything was going great, Sin City 2 was supposed to come out in '08...no wait '09...wait....uh...one day.
See, first he wanted to make Grindhouse with his buddy Tarantino, who directed a scene in Sin City. And I remember it too. While he was making Planet Terror, rumors kept coming out that dude was practically smashing Rose McGowan in front of everyone the whole shoot. Not a **** to be found. Then you hear she's his muse...and he wanna to make Red Sonja with her...and hewant her to be his Barbarella...and blah blah blah. Yambs must've been incredible.
5 minutes later his wife divorces him. Suddenly that whole "it's cool if this makes no money" thing don't run with anybody. Just about his whole production gets shut down. Sin City 2 delayed til forever. Then, with good cotdamn reason, he realizes, Rose McGowan...kinda ain't ****. And if she's the star of your $100M remake of trash, that's the last movie you're gonna make. Especially considering, he's just Michael Bay on a budget with some wannabe Tarantino sprinkled on top.
And that's how we got Machete.
So finally he broke up with that Jackovasaur, made peace with the ex, and now half a decade late and one of the stars dying later, here ya go...Sin City 2.
