Remember that Sin City sequel we’re all excited about? The one that’s finally going to happen? Well, the news just got even better. Both Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson have been confirmed to be appearing in the new film, A Dame to Kill For.
According to director Robert Rodriguez: “We still have to cast. I’m shooting Machete next month, and we go right into Sin City, It might overlap, but we haven’t done any casting yet, except for the people who we know are already in it and returning. A Dame to Kill For, all those people come back. I just had lunch with Mickey this weekend. He’s all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one. I saw Rosario, too. I ran into her for something else, and she’s pumped. They’ve always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun.”
Fun, indeed. Rourke was by far my favorite character in Sin City, so I’m looking forward to seeing more of his Marv.
The sequel will follow the format of the original, combining two stories with an adaptation of previously published work.
Rumor has it that Rodriguez would also like to cast Angelina Jolie as Ava Lord, the dame in the film’s title. According to the director, though, it has not yet been discussed with the actress.
