Directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Planet Terror), Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is currently filming in Austin, Texas and will see Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jaime King reprising their roles from the 2005 film, Sin City.
Joining the cast are Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), Dennis Haysbert (The Unit, 24), and Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad) stepping in to replace Devon Aoki, the late Michael Clarke Duncan, and Clive Owen respectively. Brolin isn’t necessarily “replacing” Owen, but rather the character Dwight McCarthy pre-facial reconstruction.
Now, The Playlist has received word that Ray Liotta (Killing Them Softly), Juno Temple (Killer Joe), and Jeremy Piven (Entourage) have joined the cast, alongside Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Christopher Meloni.
No details are being released on what characters from Frank Miller’s Sin City universe these three might play, but considering most of the female characters in the first film were prostitutes, Temple could play one of the Girls of Old Town, a character that wouldn’t be too dissimilar to her extremely limited role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
As for Liotta and Piven, it’s hard to say who they’ll be playing in this prequel/sequel anthology of Sin City stories. In any case, this is one hell of a cast that Rodriguez has assembled and it will be interesting to see how recent technological advances could change the look and feel of the film.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is slated for a release on October 4th of this year. I hope Elijah Wood returns as that creepy cannibal Kevin, I mean he received a shout-out in The Cabin in the Woods, after all! Keep your fingers crossed!
