Sin City 2 Shoots This Summer

SIN CITY 2 Begins Shooting, Adds Jaime King and Jamie Chung; Major Casting Still to Come

Heat Vision reports King will be returning to the Sin City sequel to play Wendy, the twin sister to the angelic prostitute, Goldie. Mickey Rourke is expected to return as Marv (spoiler: even though Marv was dispatched by electrocution in the first film), since the movie takes place both before and after the events of the original. Also returning in reprisals are Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. Aoki will not be returning as deadly little Miho, the katana-wielding assassin, but Chung will step into her shoes rollerblades. The character plays a crucial role in helping Dwight pinpoint the backstabbing Ava.

Here?s where it gets interesting. Clive Owen, who portrayed Dwight the first time around, is reportedly returning to the sequel, but may not play Dwight throughout the entire film. The character is understood to have undergone facial reconstructive surgery to change his appearance. So, the search is on for another top-tier talent to play the new Dwight. Also yet to be cast is someone for Ava?s role, one originally written for Angelina Jolie. Another unfilled role is that of Johnny, a smooth-talking gambler that was newly created for this film. Looks like there?ll be no rest for Rodriguez, who just barely finished wrapping on Machete Kills before hopping onto the Sin City sequel.

Exclusive: Dennis Haysbert on Tackling Manute for Sin City Sequel

ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype spoke with Haysbert earlier today for Sheldon Candis's indie drama Luv in which Haysbert plays a Baltimore crime boss, and we noted that he had shaved his head and bulked up a bit, which prompted us to ask Haysbert about taking on the Sin City role. "I haven't finished working out to the capacity that I need to, but he's going to be different. This is playing as a prequel, so it should work out," he told us.

When we asked whether he went back to watch what Duncan had done in the earlier film, he replied, "It's going to be my character, but I've spoken extensively with Frank Miller and Robert (Rodriguez) about what they want with the character and yes, it has to have some feel of what Michael did but I have to make it my own."

Haysbert also talked about the process on set, working with the two directors:

"Robert sets up the camera and he does a lot of the hands-on directing but Frank is very astute and very good at watching from a distance and just coming in and popping in a few things in your ear that really solidifies it. Because he comes from that comic book approach and everything is storyboarded so you have a clear idea as to what you want to do and what he wants. It's a very cool process."

Deadline has broken the news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed up to star in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller helmed adaptation of the latter's graphic novels. He will reportedly take on the role of 'Johnny', a part which was at one point offered to Johnny Depp. Gangster Squad star Josh Brolin is also said to be one of several actors that the studio are courting for "tough guy" roles in the sequel. Unfortunately, the site goes on to reveal that the talks between Levitt and Marvel Studios have ended and he will NOT take on the role of 'Star-Lord' in Guardians of the Galaxy. They are now "evaluating" their other candidates

Dimension Films announced today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (LOOPER, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) is joining the all-star cast as one of the lead characters in the highly anticipated SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. The film is the follow up to co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller?s 2005 visually groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER?S SIN CITY. Other major casting announcements will continue to follow.

Gordon-Levitt will play ?Johnny,? a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.

?Johnny is a new character in the Sin City world and we are excited for what Joseph will bring to the role,? said Rodriguez and Miller.

Gordon-Levitt most recently wrote, directed and stars in DON JON?S ADDICTION which will premiere this month at Sundance and also stars Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR weaves together two of Miller?s classic stories with new tales in which the town?s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

The ensemble includes already announced original cast members Academy Award? nominee Mickey Rourke as ?Marv,? Jessica Alba as ?Nancy,? Rosario Dawson as ?Gail,? and Jaime King as ?Goldie/Wendy? with new cast members Dennis Haysbert as ?Manute,? and Jamie Chung as ?Miho?. Production is underway at Rodriguez?s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

The original SIN CITY broke new ground with its iconic stylish look. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will not only bring fans back to the world that Miller and Rodriguez created, but also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller and Academy Award? winner William Monahan (The Departed).

The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013 and is produced by Robert Rodriguez?s Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.

ACADEMY AWARD? NOMINEE JOSH BROLIN ADDED TO ALL STAR ENSEMBLE AS ?DWIGHT? IN CO-DIRECTORS ROBERT RODRIGUEZ AND FRANK MILLER?S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

New York, NY January 8, 2013 ? Today Dimension Films announced another big name that has been added to the SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR cast roster, further ramping up the ensemble ? Academy Award? nominee Josh Brolin (GANGSTER SQUAD, MILK). Brolin will star as ?Dwight? in the follow up to FRANK MlLLER?S SIN CITY for co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. The part of the ?Dame? has yet to be cast.

Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller?s books and the 2005 film. In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to ?The Big Fat Kill? (featured in the film FRANK MILLER?S SIN CITY) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

?Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and ?A Dame To Kill For? is a defining episode in his life. We?re looking forward to Josh?s take on Dwight,? said Rodriguez and Miller.

Brolin will next be seen alongside Sean Penn in the Warner Bros. 1940?s police drama Gangster Squad set for release January 11, 2013. Brolin recently completed production on the Jason Reitman-directed film Labor Day opposite Kate Winslet, in addition to Spike Lee?s Oldboy, a remake of the popular Korean film. Brolin last appeared as young ?Agent K? in Men in Black 3, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and co-starring Will Smith and Emma Thompson. In 2008, Brolin was nominated for an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and received awards from the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review for his portrayal of ?Dan White? in Gus Van Sant?s acclaimed film Milk. Prior to that, Brolin earned a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of an ensemble for his work in Joel and Ethan Coen?s No Country for Old Men, which also won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR weaves together two of Miller?s classic stories with new tales in which the town?s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

The star studded ensemble includes already announced original cast members Academy Award? nominee Mickey Rourke as ?Marv,? Jessica Alba as ?Nancy,? Rosario Dawson as ?Gail? and Jaime King as ?Goldie/Wendy? with new cast members Joseph Gordon-Levitt as ?Johnny,? Dennis Haysbert as ?Manute? and Jamie Chung as ?Miho.?

Sin City was 1 in a 1000 comic book movies that got everything right. Looking forward to this, the concept seems pretty hard to mess up.
