Comic As Storyboard


We all know by now that Frank Miller's cult-comic series Sin City is hitting the big screen this Friday, and that it's directed by both Robert Rodriquez and Miller. Legend has it Miller thought Sin City was un-make-able until Rodriquez invited him to his Texas castle movie studio and shot, edited, FX'ed and scored an entire scene from The Babe Wore Red in one day. The results impressed the author so much, he decided to trust Rodriquez with his baby, but only if he co-directed, of course. It's been obvious throughout the project that the two were visually sticking close to the books.

Setting aside my qualms about movies that mime comics, there's some eerie deja vu going on. (via Drawn!)
