While no official word has been released, The Playlist are reporting that sources close to Sin City: A Dame To Kill For have confirmed three more names joining the cast.
In the past few weeks we have already seen big names like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin added to the growing cast list, and now reports are saying that Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven have all signed on to appear in the film. There is no word as yet on just where they fit in with Robert Rodriguez’ prequel, but no doubt an official statement will come soon.
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 star studded 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 Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute”, Josh Brolin as “Dwight”, Christopher Meloni as “a disreputable cop” 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.
One of the storylines from Frank Miller’s graphic novels being adapted is “A Dame to Kill For,” originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava. Also, A Dame to Kill For takes place before and after the events of the first film, thus allowing Mickey Rourke’s Marv to return. While no exact plot details are known, last year Miller stated that another storyline that will be used is ‘Just Another Saturday Night’, and this would form part of the films narrative. He also said that a story had been written specifically for Jessica Alba’s Nancy, and that this story would tie the two films together.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is expected to arrive in October 2013.
