Just yesterday we discovered Joseph Gordon-Levitt had joined the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and now the roll call of well-known names has grown again, as Josh Brolin and Christopher Meloni have joined the film.
Brolin will play Dwight, taking over the role from Clive Owen who played the part in the first Sin City Movie. 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 Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face – so it should make sense that he’s not played by Clive Owen.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller commented, “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.”
As yet it’s not known who Christopher Meloni will play.
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. Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King all return, with new cast members including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung. The part of the ‘Dame’ has yet to be cast. Production is underway at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas. (Source: Variety)
