‘The Walking Dead’ creator Greg Nicotero talks ‘Sin City 2,’ Marv’s makeup

While juggling countless jobs, The Walking Dead creator Greg Nicotero spoke briefly about returning for the Sin City sequel during an interview with Collider.

Mickey-Rourke-as-Marv-Sin-City“It was nine years.  It was great!  We got to do Mickey Rourke’s Marv make-up again.  Bruce Willis was there.  Doing the first Sin City was a really fun experience.  We spent four months shooting on green screen.  Robert really was not only one of the first guys to do a 3D movie in recent years, when he did Spy Kids 3D, but he created that green screen world for Sin City.  Robert is a maverick filmmaker,” Nicotero recounted about the first film.

Now Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is coming to theaters in 2014 and Nicotero was back to do some of the make-ups.

“It was exciting for us to be able to go back and get a second chance to do that kind of movie again.  It was so much fun!  We had a great time.  It was cool to see new cast members come in, and it was fun to have people like Mickey, who we loved working with and loved doing his make-up.  It was great!  It was really a blast.”

Dame was moved to 2014 and even Nicotero hasn’t seen the final product.

“I’m dying to see the movie.  Robert keeps offering to show it to me, but I don’t want to see it with the green screen.  I don’t want to see it until it’s finished.  I want to go in and experience it as the rest of the world will experience it.”

Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner and Stacy Keach will feature in the movie.
