The Trivia of: Sin City

Sort by: Showing 13 items
Rating: List Type:

Robert Rodriguez scored Kill Bill: Vol. 2 for $1. Quentin Tarantino said he would repay him by directing a segment of this movie for $1. Tarantino, a vocal proponent of film-over-digital, has said that he was curious to get hands-on experience with the HD cameras which Rodriguez lauds. When asked about his experience, Tarantino merely replied, "Mission Accomplished."

Leonardo DiCaprio was originally up for the role of Junior but eventually declined the role, which later went to Nick Stahl.

As each sequence of this film was shot separately, new cast members were added and incorporated in the stories throughout the production. In many cases separate footage was composited in post-production to look as if it were all shot the same day. For example: Marv (Mickey Rourke) takes Wendy (Jaime King) to Nancy's (Jessica Alba) home. Alba had not been cast yet when Rourke and King shot the scene; her footage was added in later. The same is true of the scenes between Marv and Cardinal Roark (Rutger Hauer) and Kevin (Elijah Wood), as Hauer and Wood were cast after Rourke had shot his scenes.

Robert Rodriguez originally envisioned Johnny Depp in the role of Jackie Boy. Due to prior commitments, Depp could not play the part. While at the Academy Awards, Rodriguez saw Benicio Del Toro with long hair ("Wolf Man" hair, as he describes it. Ironically, Del Toro plays the title character of The Wolfman) and said that he "was looking at Jackie Boy". He told Del Toro not to cut his hair and mailed him the comic book and a copy of the short, "The Customer is Always Right." Del Toro immediately signed on.

Guest director Quentin Tarantino directed the scene involving Dwight (Clive Owen) and Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro) in the front of the car, before Dwight is pulled over by a police officer.

The swords used by Miho (Devon Aoki) in this film are the same ones used by some of the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill: Vol. 1. That film's director, Quentin Tarantino, had been keeping them in the back of his garage.

Kate Bosworth was the first choice for the role of Gail.

Robert Rodriguez originally asked Hans Zimmer to score the music, but Zimmer couldn't accept it, cause at the time he was in England preparing Batman Begins. Zimmer recommended two of his friends, 'John Debney (I)' and Graeme Revell.
brawljeff's rating:

Christopher Walken, Willem Dafoe, Steve Buscemi and Michael Douglas were all originally offered roles. Douglas was offered the role of Hartigan, Buscemi was offered the part of Junior when he became the Yellow Bastard, and Dafoe and Walken were both offered the role of Senator Roark.
