A couple days ago, MTV’s Splash Page chatted up actor Mickey Rourke at a party for Fox Seachlight and the results of that discussion (which you can read here) seemed to indicate that both Frank Miller and Mickey were ready to go on the long-delayed Sin City 2.
At the junket for Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler in which Rourke gives a heartbreaking performance as Randy “The Ram” Robinson, a has-been wrestler trying to go out in a blaze of glory, he told ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! that he’s not as gung-ho about returning to play Marv as he might have been last week.
“No, I’m not interested in that right now. That’s not a reality right now. It’s pissing in the wind,” Rourke admitted. “There’s different factions going different directions there. I don’t know. That’s three hours of make up and I’m claustrophobic, so I’m going to have to work something out.”
Who knows how much of a role Marv would have played in the sequel considering that it was to be based around the mini-series “A Dame to Kill For” but Marv was always kind of in the background even in the stories that didn’t feature him, so hopefully, they can work things out.
In the meantime, Rourke told us he was really digging the movie he was currently working on, 13, Gela Babluanis remake of his own French film 13 Tzameti, but he told us that the character he plays is a new one not in the original movie.
