The cast of Sin City : A Dame To Kill For has been growing almost daily, but one things it’s been lacking is the dame of the title. Now it’s got one as it’s been announced that co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have chosen Eva Green (Dark Shadows, 300: Rise of an Empire, Casino Royale) to star as the film’s deadly muse, Ava Lord.
Ava, the iconic character from Miller’s graphic novel of the same name, is described by Miller as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.”
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller commented, “We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”
Eva Green joining the film rounds out the huge cast that includes original cast members Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Bruce Willis as “Hartigan”, Rosario Dawson as “Gail” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Josh Brolin as “Dwight,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute,” Christopher Meloni as “Mort,” Jeremy Piven as “Bob,” Jamie Chung as “Miho,” Ray Liotta as “Joey,” Juno Temple as “Sally.”
Also joining the cast is Julia Garner, an up-and-comer whose credits include Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. She will play a young stripper opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Johnny.
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.
