You know, I’m pretty sure I never thought Michael Madsen was a priest or anything, but even I am a little shocked by his vulgar vocabulary in this interview with Premiere. Madsen rails against pretty much everything, from Hollywood to how he’s sick of his country to his doubt that “Sin City 2” will ever get made. His reasoning? “Grindhouse” bombed like a bastard, so there is doubt if the guys behind “Grindhouse” (Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, etc) would get the change needed to make “Sin City 2”. Now I don’t know where Madsen is getting his info, but considering how much “Sin City” made at the box office — yeah, Michael, I’m gonna go with “Yeah, ‘Sin City 2’ is gonna get made”. Call it a hunch.
Here’s the part in the interview about “Sin City 2”:
Some of the other things that you have got coming up include Sin City 2.
They haven’t shot it yet. I don’t know if they ever will. I am not sure [about] the franchise. I think the Grindhouse thing didn’t kind of work out…
…as well as they had hoped. Certainly not in the States.
I don’t know what effect that is going to have on making Sin City 2. Sin City was Mickey [Rourke]’s film. Mickey is fucking incredible in that fucking movie. He is the movie. And I am happy for Mickey. Mickey is the real deal. Mickey is Mickey. And you can’t fuck with that. And he did a tremendous job in that thing. The only reason I did it was because Robert Rodriguez said that if I took that little part I would get a bigger role in the sequel, that Bob would have more to do in the sequel. So I said: “Okay, fine.” I am sitting on an apple box [in front of a green screen] and then when you see the movie, you’re in a car. I don’t understand it. I don’t know how to do that. I don’t get it.
Have you seen the script for Sin City 2 yet?
No. I talk to Frank Miller quite often. He came up to my house and we drank a lot of tequila. Frank is pretty funny. I haven’t seen the script for Sin City 2. I don’t know if they are gonna make it. I hope they do. And if and when they do, I will be in it.
Oh, Michael, take a swig of some Tequila and chill out. You’re way too high-strung, my man.
