Rosario Dawson Confirms She's Back for Sin City 2

by SuperHeroHype

September 07, 2012

While she's talked about returning for the follow-up before, Rosario Dawson has now confirmed she's on board for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Talking to E! Online, she said "It's in! It's happening! Can't tell you nothing."

Asked previously where she would like her character Gail to go in the new film, she said "I think Gail is pretty much Gail. What you see is what you get. I don't think she's going to be poppin' out any babies and singing any songs or anything like that. What's actually really fun about it is that we get to investigate it a little bit more into the storyline that was actually in "Sin City 2" - that middle chapter which is where Gail mostly was. Investigate a little more as to who is this man and what are they talking about when he's got a different face."

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). Robert Rodriguez and Miller will direct the October 4, 2013 release.

Mickey Rourke Says Sin City 2 Script is 'Better'

by SuperHeroHype

September 28, 2012

Vulture caught up with Sin City actor Mickey Rourke and asked him about the upcoming sequel to the film. "I actually liked the script better, much better, for this one," he said.

Sounds good to us. The only problem is the actor implied that his deal for the film isn't complete. His reluctance might steam from his hatred of the prosthetics for the role, which we've reported on previously. He said, "They make me feel claustrophobic."

Director Robert Rodriguez previously said the film will be closer to the source material than before. He also said that some new story elements will appear in the film, mostly to surprise fans of the comic.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is set to begin production this November for an October 14, 2013 release date.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Begins Production!

by SuperHeroHype

October 29, 2012

THR is reporting that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For officially began shooting today in Austin, Texas. The sequel has been in development for a long time and is now finally on track for its 2013 release date.

We've also learned of the addition of two more cast members to the film. First up, we will officially see the return of Jaime King, who portrayed Goldie and Wendy in the first film and reprises her role as Wendy in the sequel. Jamie Chung will also be stepping into the shoes worn by Devon Aoki in the first film for the role of deadly little Miho. THR also points out that many roles in the film still remain unfilled at this time, so we should expect more details on those very soon.

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). Robert Rodriguez and Miller are directing the October 4, 2013 release.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Adds Dennis Haysbert

by SuperHeroHype

December 05, 2012

In the wake of the tragic loss of actor Michael Clarke Duncan earlier this year, Robert Rodriguez has recast the role of Manute in his upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the role will now be played by Dennis Haysbert ("24," "The Unit").

Now in production in Austin, the comic book sequel will again be co-directed by Frank Miller and will feature the return of Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King with Jamie Chung stepping into the Miho role originally played by Devon Aoki.

An official plot synopsis has not yet been revealed, but one of the stories being brought to the screen this time around is the titular "A Dame to Kill For," based on Miller's 1993 miniseries.

This isn't the first time that Haysbert and Duncan have both played the same comic book character. Haysbert provided the voice of Green Lantern Kilowog on the animated "Justice League" series, later brought to the big screen with Duncan voicing.

Exclusive: Dennis Haysbert on Tackling Manute for Sin City Sequel

by SuperHeroHype

December 15, 2012

The tragic death of Michael Clarke Duncan earlier this year led to a lot of questions about how they were going to handles his character Manute in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's crime-noir sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For since Manute is one of the main villains of the original comic story. Earlier this month, it was announced that Dennis Haysbert, best known for his role playing President David Palmer on the hit show "24," was in talks for the role.

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."

Look for more with the actor and his co-stars over on ComingSoon.net sometime before the release of Luv on January 18, 2013, while Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is scheduled for October 4, 2013.

McCahill posted these photos on her Instagram account (via Bleeding Cool), one of her outfit and another that looks like a poster featuring her character. Check them out below!

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). Robert Rodriguez and Miller are directing the October 4, 2013 release.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Joins Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

by SuperHeroHype

January 07, 2013

Dimension Films officially announced today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is joining the all-star cast as one of the lead characters in the highly anticipated Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. 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.

"I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality," said Gordon-Levitt of the role. "Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr. Rodriguez."

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.

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 Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.

Gordon-Levitt's commitment to A Dame to Kill For also means that he definitely will not be appearing in Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy, as rumored last week.

Josh Brolin Joins Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

by SuperHeroHype

January 08, 2013

On the heels of casting announcements for both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christopher Meloni, Dimension Films has now announced that Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad, Milk) has joined the cast of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. He'll play Dwight, the same character played by Clive Owen in the 2005 original.

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” 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, Tommy Lee Jones 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.

Bruce Willis Confirmed for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

by SuperHeroHype

January 21, 2013

A handful of the cast members from Robert Rodriguez's original Sin City are already confirmed to return for the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but the one noticeable absence has been Bruce Willis. In an interview with MTV, Rodriguez confirmed that Willis will return in the film.

"Bruce is back, so you'll be seeing him."

He also spoke about newcomer Jospeh Gordon-Levitt's character and story in the film.

"It's a new character. He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler, who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story's called 'The Long, Bad Night.' He beats the wrong guy in a game and bad stuff happens to him."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be presented in 3D when it's released, and Rodriguez says it will blow our minds.

"We're really playing with stuff because that's a very two dimensional world and to see that stylization in 3D, it'll blow people's minds. 3D hasn't been used like this yet."
