While we’ve heard the many rumors on the cast for Sin City 2 (which will be officially titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, seeing as how that’s the graphic novel it will be based on), we have some confirmations from Robert Rodriguez, who will be returning to the director’s chair for the film.
He confirmed that Bruce Willis will return as Hartigan, and while that may baffle some fans of the first film, keep in mind that A Dame to Kill For takes place before the story of the first Sin City, making it a prequel, if you want to talk in dirty terms. He has also confirmed that Jessica Alba will also return for the film.
In the new addition category, he confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will make an appearance as a gambler named Johnny, and Rodriguez had this to say about the character:
“He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villian in Sin City at his own game. The story is called ‘The Long Bad Night.’ He beats the wrong guy in the game. Bad stuff happens to him. Bad stuff.”
Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, and Juno Temple, will also join the cast, along with the previously announced Josh Brolin, Jamie King, Mickey Rourke, Christopher Meloni, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Michael Madsen,Dennis Haysbert, and Jamie Chung. Yeah, the cast of the sequel is looking about as stacked as the first film. A Dame to Kill For hits theaters October 4th.
The Russo Brothers (best known for their work on Community and Arrested Development) are hard at work in getting Captain America: The Winter Soldier ready for release next year, and they’ve added to their cast for that film recently. Toby Jones will return as Zola, the Nazi doctor, although it’s not quite yet clear when the film will take place. Will it be in the past, or will it be in the present, with S.H.I.E.L.D. involved in the film? Will there just be flashbacks? We’ll know soon enough, I suppose.
Frank Grillo is set to play the villain of the film, Crossbones, and Anthony Mackie will join the cast as Cap’s side-kick, but we won’t call him Bucky. I don’t think. However, we will see some Avengers connectivity as it’s been announced that Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Cobie Smulders will appear in the film as Cap’s S.H.I.E.L.D. teammates. The film still has a long time before its April 4th, 2014 release date, but I’m curious to see where it goes, especially with the Russo brothers behind the camera.
