It’s been a while since the unique comic book art cinematic style and brutal nature of Sin City blazed onto the big screen in 2005, but the sequel is finally about to descend on us in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. If that’s not good news enough, the majority of the original cast will be returning to their roles with the addition of a number of new big names to create another iconic installment of the comic book adaptation.
The story has been written by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez once again, who are also the directors of the film. It’s based primarily on the second book in their Sin City comic series with nuggets from later books and a couple of original chapters the pair penned for the movie itself.
Sin City A Dame to Kill For is due for release on the 2nd October 2013, coming just in time for the onset of dark nights and the return of the winter chill. However, the big news is that Josh Brolin (Men In Black III) will be introduced in the role of Dwight McCarthy, replacing Clive Owen with a facial reconstruction explanation for the new look Dwight.
Eva Green (Casino Royale) plays the title dame, Ava Lord, Dwight’s former lover, as she draws him back into her web of lies. Jessica Alba (Into The Blue) will be back as the stunning Nancy Callahan, with Rosario Dawson (Death Proof) as Gail, Micky Rourke (Iron Man II) as Marv and Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard) as John Hartigan once again.
Other new additions to the cast include Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50) as gambling man Johnny, Ray Liotta (The Place Beyond the Pines) as business man Joey, Dennis Haysbert (Wreck It Ralph) as Ava’s manservant Manute and Jeremy Piven (Entourage) as the bad cop Bob, replacing Michael Madsen from the original.
As with the original Sin City film, A Dame To Die For is split into slightly overlapping chapters with their own individual storyline. However, you should expect all of them to be as dark, brutal, sexy and unique as they were in the first movie.
