The actor explained he had a better experience working with Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller on the Sin City sequel, ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.’ He pointed out that, “When you work with Robert, he knows what he wants so you’re not doing a whole bunch of (unnecessary work). I do a whole bunch of research, work on the character a lot, so when you bring it to the table, it’s disappointing when they cut stuff out… ” Rourke continued on commenting on how great it was to work with Rodriguez and Miller, “And then Frank’s on the set and he puts his two cents in, so it’s great because you’ve got two guys who are very enthusiastic and know exactly what they want.”
