Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin City 2' Brings Prime Focus on Board as Investor

Again Prime Focus is on the news...
Quote:
"vSin City: A Dame to Kill For" has closed a deal to bring on Prime Focus as an investor in the ultra-violent comic book sequel, TheWrap has learned.

The visual-effects house will contribute cash and effects work, as well as offer tax incentives it receives for post-production work in places like Canada and the U.K. Prime Focus' total investment in the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel is valued at between $16 million to $19 million, according to an individual with knowledge of the negotiations. In return it will receive equity in the production starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin and Mickey Rourke.

I wonder how they can have a sequel with Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis when both characters died in the original?

I imagine monetarily this differs from being "just another vendor for hire".

If you are interested, you could give the original comic books by Frank Miller a read. They are quite good and plenty of more stories than just the characters of Marv and Hartigan.

Maybe they are afraid to call it a 'prequel' or 'origin-story' because the viewing audience is already board with the notion. Now a two hour 'flash-back'...nobody has ever thought of that idea before I wrote this just now. Do you think I should I get a patent?!
