The sequel rights to Sin City, Frank Miller's popular noir comic, are being shopped around Hollywood in what appears to be a sign that Dimension Films has lost rights to the property, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Weinstein Co./Dimension continue to maintain that they hold the rights to any sequel for the Robert Rodriguez film, which grossed $159 million worldwide when it came out in 2005.

But producers say they have been shopped the rights by representatives for Miller's estate, who they say are seeking a new place to set up a potential follow-up.

It is unclear what kind of involvement Rodriguez, who directed the first movie and has strong connections to both TWC and Miller, would have with a potential sequel.
