Michael Clarke Duncan Talks Sin City 2, Transformers

Also, Rosario Dawson talks about how Brangelina slowed down the much-anticipated sequel. And Duncan dispels Transformers talk.
Michael Clark Duncan gave Coming Soon an update on Sin City 2.

The actor wouldn't confirm he'll be back. "I would love to. I would love to," he told ComingSoon.net. "I think those sequels are pretty [cool] because I don't think I have to gain any weight for it. Manute isn't that big of a guy. He's an imposing guy just by what he says or doesn't say. But, I don't have to get back up to like 300 pounds to be Manute so that will kind of be an easy you know transformation for me if I decide to do that one."

However, Duncan does know a lot about the sequence of the films: "They're going to start off with number one where Manute is alive again because we already saw this ending over here so he does this thing. Frank Miller is like that. Manute is just like the heavy. He's the heavy. He's in all of them. He's just like the bodyguard. He does whatever it takes. He's in all the Sin City's, but Frank Miller does it like they're not in order. He may go from the middle one. He may go from the first one and then he may go to the last one. Manute got killed in that Sin City that you saw," Duncan explained.

Another Sin City star, Rosario Dawson, told IGN Filmforce that she's scheduled to do the sequel after she finishes Grind House for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. However, Angelina Jolie's pregnancy put Sin City 2 in park. Is there a start date? "I don't know," says Dawson. "I think, I'm doing Death Proof [Tarantino's half of Grind House] in August and September and I know that just finally, Angelina [Jolie] just finished having her baby…"

Jolie has been rumored to be, but not confirmed for, the lead in the film. "I'm pretty sure [she's in it]. That's what we've basically been holding out on, because we were supposed to start that last year or earlier. I think he wanted to do that sooner rather than later, so that will probably be coming up soon…"

He also says, contrary to reports, he won't be in the Transformers movie because he couldn't come to an agreement with Michael Bay. "Believe me. Trust me when I say I wanted to do that movie. Trust me when I say I wanted to do 'Transformers.' I'm a big kid at heart. I watched 'Transformers.' That was one of my favorite cartoons. Optimus Prime was one of my favorite characters and to be head of a Navy Seal team going in and fighting these gigantic robots would have been perfect. But, we just, I don't know. It was oil and water. It just did not mix and I wanted it to. Me and Michael Bay talked but we were on two different pages. I told him I was really sad because I said 'you know I'm coming to do good work.' I said 'you already know that. You won't have an actor that comes in high and that doesn't know his work.' I said 'you know that I'm coming to do good work.' We just couldn't get it together."
