The film combines multiple stories from Frank Miller's books with new plot-lines written specifically for the movie. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted by his only love Ava Lord, who watches his life go down the drain. The story is set before the five-issue comic book series The Big Fat Kill, which explains the story behind the character's face change.
The film would have been the second Robert Rodriguez film to hit the big screen this year with Machete Kills schedule to theaters in September. Frank Miller also has 300: Rise of an Empire slated to release March 7th, 2014.
