SDCC 2011: Robert Rodriguez Going Ahead With ‘Sin City’, ‘Machete’ Sequels via Quick Draw

Robert Rodriguez announced yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 that he is launching a new production company called Quick Draw. This company will work alongside Troublemaker to get his projects made. Troublemaker is his production company working within the studio system and Quick Draw will be his outlet for self-financed projects working outside the standard Hollywood system.

His first two projects coming from Quick Draw will be Sin City 2 and Machete 2. In a roundtable interview, Rodriguez shared that he really felt the need to finance and own his own projects after the Disney/Miramax split where neither the Weinsteins nor he himself owned his films. At this point the scripts for both films are nearly complete. Once he’s happy with the stories he’ll go right into production through Quick Draw, no waiting for money from Hollywood.

When asked about whether he can get the cast committed to Sin City 2 he replied that it would take little more than a phone call. He reminded us that the style of shooting utilized for the first one and the upcoming sequel allows him to shoot around the actor’s schedules with some actors that are in the same scene being shot months apart.

No specific release dates for these films were given.
