I heard something about it, but I can't remember who is adapting/directing it. He's a fairly big name though.

Rodriguez Packing Sin City with Top Talent Source: The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday, March 17, 2004
Robert Rodriguez is eyeing some big talent for Sin City, says The Hollywood Reporter...
According to multiple sources, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Willis, Elijah Wood, Mickey Rourke, Brittany Murphy, Kate Bosworth and Jaime King have been targeted for the film, an adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel series. Some of the actors have already signed on for parts in the pic, while others are only in discussions or have just received offers to join the cast. Other names being bandied about include Benicio Del Toro and Maria Bello, though offers had not yet gone out to either as of late Wednesday. Set to start shooting shortly, "Sin City" will be composed of three intertwining vignettes revolving around a dark set of characters that call the fictional corrupt town home.
Yeah Robert Rodriguez is directing, with Frank Millar and Tarantino co-directing alledgedly.

Paraphrased from this weekís Entertainment Weekly (EW) for those interested I suggest picking up a copy.
by Scott Brown, EW
In Sin City, the rotten comic-book noir-opolis created by writer-artist Fran Miller, rules (and bones) are made to be broken. Director Robert Rodriguez is rebelling appropriately with Sin City, his adaptation of three of Millerís beloved graphic novels: Sin City, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow B-stard. Heís enlisted Miller as co director which has gotten Rodriquez in trouble with the Directors Guild of American (DGA) - and asked pal Quentin Tarantino to lend a helming hand later this summer. Now, Bruce Willis has joins an ever expanding cast. EW collared Rodriguez for a hard boiled sit down.
Howíd You Convince Miller to let you adapt it?
I said, Iíll shoot the opening sequence with Josh Hartnett and Marley Shelton. Youíll come down, hand out, be part of it. Iíll cut it together, put the effects in. If you like what you see, weíll make a deal and keep going. If you donít youíve got a nice shot film to show your friends.
What Happened With The DGA?
They said, ďAs you know it totally against the rules to have two directors.Ē And I was like, it is? How was I supposed to know that? I see co directors all the time. The Wachowski Brothers, the Hughes Brothers. Itís a subjective ruling. Thereís nothing in the rule book that says it specifically Ė the rule book is very thick, by the way. I looked at it an it said you have to be ďa bona fide teamĒ whatever the f-ck that means.
So you left the Guild?
Iíll occupy that island of misfit directors like Quentin Tarantino and George Lucas. Thatís where Iíve been banished *Laughs* Itís actually really nice here.
Every day, I just look over at Frank (Miller), and heís got this big smile on his face. And I think God, Iím really glad I got to make this movie.
The week earlier EW interviewed Quentin Tarantino who had this to say about Sin City.
Interview With Quentin Tarantino, EW
EW: What about reports of working on Robert Rodriguezís next film Sin City?
QT: I totally want to do it Ė itís based on one of Frank Millerís graphic novels. Iíd be a special quest director. He (RR) wrote the score for Kill Bill vol. 2 and charged me a dollar to do it, so Iíll charge him a buck for directing.
At this point in time Sin City is easily the most anticipated film of 2005 for me.

Seeing as how Depp has already worked with RR, and wants to work with QT, and is in talent and look very B&W Noir friendly (Dead Man) I think this is the perfect opportunity for that to happen.
