Mickey Rourke has a lot to thank Sin City for, as it massively reinvigorated his career. However until now we haven’t known whether he’d be back as Marv in the upcoming sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. However The Playlist confirms that not only will Rourke be back, but Jessica Alba will return for the film too. It starts shooting soon, with an October 2013 release now set – and it’ll be in 3D too!
It’s not the only Rourke news, as Coming Soon reports that he’s also signed up for Marble City, as has Nicolas Cage. Marble City has been doing the rounds in Hollywood for quite a few years now, but it finally looks like it’s moving forward, with Azumi and Midnight Meat Train director Ryuhei Kitamura helming.
Apparently, ‘Marble City takes us on a journey of a newly released prisoner who seeks revenge on those that put him inside. It is the story of a man who finds his inner peace through vengeance.’
Producer Jeremy Wall says, “The film is a high action and close combat fighting picture. We will bring a dynamic flair to the screen with this director and story. We are delighted to be attracting the highest caliber of actor in the business to work with us in this venture, namely Oscar winning actor Nicolas Cage and Oscar winning actor Mickey Rourke. let the battle begin.” Umm, we know a producer’s job is to big up a project, but giving Mickey Rourke an Oscar he hasn’t won is going a bit far.
The ‘Kill Bill meets Drive’ movie starts shooting in August.
