Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has found its Ava Lord

Jan. 29, 2013by: Alex Maidy

The role of femme fatale Ava Lord is vital to SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. I mean, she is the titular dame, after all. For a long time, Robert Rodriguez had Angelina Jolie lined up for the part, but after years of delays, she moved on to other projects. Still, you need to cast someone in the role who is sultry and sexual but also exudes a sharpness that makes you question your safety. SIN CITY creator Frank Miller described her as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.”

Who better to fill those qualifications than the alluring Eva Green? The French actress has cemented those aforementioned qualities in movies such as DARK SHADOWS, THE DREAMERS, CRACKS, and CASINO ROYALE. She was also excellent in the short-lived Starz series CAMELOT as the villain Morgan. Those films also all showcase her damn fine body and show she is not afraid of showing a little nudity.

Miller and Rodriguez issued a statement saying “We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."

I think this is a great choice that just adds to the already amazing cast that includes Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Julia Garner.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will open October 4, 2013.

Awesome casting choice--she has more than enough in both the talent and looks category to play Ava Lord, that's for sure.

TO DANDA:

I'm sure that Clive Owen is still playing Dwight. Josh Brolin will play Dwight pre-op and Owen will play him opst-op (sorry the reply function doesn't seem to be working).

PERFECT CHOICE

I was really hoping it would be her. You've just made my day, Rodriguez...There are really only a small number of actresses working now who would be a good fit for this character. As more new castmembers have been announced over the last couple of weeks, I've been waiting breathlessly for this particular role to be filled, hoping against hope that RR and Miller would somehow consider the stunning Vesper. I have a very good feeling about this movie now!

Eva as Ava! It's makes perfect sense, she's the quintessential modern-day screen seductress.

That there is a dame to kill for...

While I figured whoever they'd get would be able to fit the role, Eva never crossed my mind. But really, she's perfect. She embodies that dark temptation and intelligence that is Ava Lord. She's one of those people who I often don't think about, but then there she is and I can't NOT think about her. Like Ava.

Praise the Ava Lord

The only way they could have made this casting any more perfect is if they somehow went back in time and got Angelina Jolie circa Hackers/Firefox, just when she was on the cusp of becoming a star. The casting of Ava Lord was going to either make or break my interest (and the film), but this is now firmly one of my most anticipated of the year.

Couldn't Be Happier.

Yes! The last post about Sin City: A Dame To Kill For I said I didn't want Jolie, that I wanted Eva Green or Scarlett Johansson to get the role. I can't believe it was actually one of those two. Not only that but the one I wanted the most. Almost makes up for the loss of Clive Owen.

Actually, I'm sure Clive Owen will be back as Dwight. His character has facial surgery in this story, so in the movie he'll start off played by Josh Brolin and end up played by Owen.

I love her! Great choice!

It's so sad Rodriguez and Miller have spent every year since the first film hurting their brand. I'd be excited about the film otherwise.

Gimme a Hell! Gimme a Yeah!

That's a great casting call. Jolie would have been an excellent choice as well but Eva Green will knock this one out of the park.

All those years ago when the sequel was first announced, I knew this role was going to either Eva or Angelina.
