Collider.com sat down with Jessica Alba recently during the Escape from Planet Earth press junket to discuss the 3D flick, A.C.O.D., and more importantly Sin City 2!. CLICK HERE to read the full interview.

Sin City 2 is one of these projects that everyone talked about for years, that honestly I just lost faith that it was going to happen and then all of the sudden it did.

Alba: Out of nowhere right?

Out of nowhere and he has everybody in Hollywood in the movie, like everyone.  Talk a little bit about when you first heard that it was coming back and that you were going to be a part of it.

Alba: I think like you every six months to a year it was like “We’re going to do it, when’s the next one coming?  Oh yeah, we’re going to do it.  We’re going to do it.  We’re going to do it.” And then at a certain point it was just like OK, I just didn’t believe it.  It was like “We’re going to start in the summer, we’re going to start in the fall” but then when we actually got the start date and I was there on the set it was like a dream.  I was like, “Am I really here?  Are we really here?  OK, just making sure.” And Jamie [Chung] filmed the day before me and I was like “Are we really doing this?” So yeah, it was surreal and I ran into Rosario [Dawson] and for all of us it’s really cool.  I got to work with Bruce [Willis] and with Mickey [Rourke] and it’s probably one of the best times of my life working on the second.  The first was like open the doors and this has been, certainly as an artist, the best experience.

What’s interesting is that everyone I’ve spoken to that’s been working on it has been telling me that its literally all green screen, that everyone is filming their stuff and then he’s going to put it all together in post.

Alba: That’s how the first on was.

It seems even more extreme on this one, but maybe I’m not hearing it right.

Alba: It’s exactly the same as the first one.  I got to work with Mickey this time, which I didn’t work with him the first time, even though we were in scenes together, I did my scenes with Robert, so that was nice, to be able to work with Mickey because I’ve always been a huge fan of his.

Talk a little bit about what the process is like working for Robert when you’re on green screen like that.  How much is he showing you the pre-vis or the art work to show you what it’s going to look like or is it a lot of imagination going on?

Alba: Well this is- mine is an original story so there wasn’t a lot to base it off of, but Frank [Miller] has been drawing.  So it’s just crazy.  It was neat to see their process, Robert and Frank’s, and their collaboration and what they inspire from each other and get out of each other and what they’re creating.  It’s really like the 2.0 version of Sin City and it’s pretty amazing.

I’m going to run out of time with so I do want to ask you what you are thinking about for the rest of the year in terms of roles.  Obviously we could talk about Machete Kills, or Machete Kills Again in Space, but I am curious what you’re thinking about for the future is there a certain role that you’re looking after or going for?  What’s percolating?

Alba: A couple of things.  I’m about to go on a book tour, I just wrote a book and its coming out in march so that’s the next thing that I’m thinking about and I have a company that I started about a year ago, so my company, you know, every day I’m the president.  So that’s exciting and that’s something so completely different from what goes on in entertainment.  I’m looking to do some completely different things more as a producer and creator as some things that I have percolating.  We’ll see.  I’m really looking forward to Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For to come out.  It’s going to be rad.

Myriad Pictures is preselling the movie, which is written by Milo Addica and will mark the Oscar-nominated scribe’s big-screen directorial debut.

BERLIN — Jessica Alba is in final negotiations to star in Weightless, an original screenplay from Oscar-nominated writer Milo Addica (Monster’s Ball) that will mark the scribe’s first outing in the director’s chair.

Myriad Pictures is shopping presales to buyers on the project, which will see Alba play the lead role.

Set in the near future, the movie details the story of a female astronaut (Alba) who winds up in a complicated love affair with the brother of a woman who died in a motorcycle accident she caused but didn’t tell anyone about for fear of jeopardizing her place on a space flight.

Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will produce with Steve Norris, alongside the U.K.’s Apollo Productions and its partners, Pinewood Studios and VFX powerhouse Double Negative.

Addica is repped by Oren Segal of MPE (Management Production Entertainment), Joanne Wiles and Kevin Crotty of ICM Partners and attorney Karl Austen. – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Hopefully everything will fall into place.

Jessica Alba is Women’s Health’s March 2013 cover star!

The ‘Sin City’ beauty graces the front cover of Women’s Health magazine’s March issue oozing confidence, letting her natural beauty shine in minimal make-up and a casual white t-shirt paired with jeans.

Amazingly, the 31-year-old confesses to the monthly mag that it has been a long process for her to finally accept her sexiness.

“A few years ago, I couldn’t use the word ‘sexy’ to describe myself without feeling funny,” the Hollywood beauty admits.

“Now that I’ve had two kids, my idea of physical perfection has changed – and I finally feel confident, secure and, yes, sexy.”

Jessica, who is a mother to her two daughters, Honor and Haven, also touches on her how-to guide, ‘The Honest Life’, which guides parents on how to live a chemical-free life.

In a statement last year she spoke on the upcoming book, saying: “I’ve spent way too many hours researching products and driving around trying to find safer, eco-friendly options for my kids.”

“I knew that most people didn’t have that kind of time, nor the means to pay the premium prices. We had to make it easier.” (Entertainment Wise)
