Last week it was confirmed that the long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will finally start shooting this summer, after director Robert Rodriguez wraps on another sequel, Machete Kills. The initial said many of the original cast would return, while stopping short of announcing exactly who.
Rodriguez has now been talking to MTV and confirmed that Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson will both be back for the sequel. He says, “We still have to cast. I’m shooting Machete Kills next month, and we go right into Sin City. It might overlap, but we haven’t done any casting yet, except for the people who we know are already in it and returning. A Dame to Kill For, all those people come back. I just had lunch with Mickey [Rourke] this weekend. He’s all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one. I saw Rosario [Dawson] too. I ran into her for something else, and she’s pumped. They’ve always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun.”
It has been long rumored that Angelina Jolie may play the title role, although the director revealed he hasn’t reached out to her yet. “I haven’t even gotten to meet with her yet about it or discuss with Frank (Miller) about who we would want to go with or talk to first. That’s a fun process, but that probably won’t happen in the next month.” It’s also true that if the plan is to shoot this summer, Jolie is probably about, as she’s due to start shooting Malifecent in June.
