Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes the lead in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

01.07.2013

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR just got a little bit cooler.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to play the leading role in Robert Rodriguez's second installment of the graphic novel adaptation. Levitt will play Johnny, who is described as, "a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game." Johnny Depp was once offered the role, but it didn't work out. The character is a new one that Rodriguez and Miller are excited to see Levitt bring to the big screen.

Levitt will join Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Chung, Jamie King, and Dennis Haysbert. It is also being reported that Bruce Willis is looking to return, and that Josh Brolin may have a role in the sequel as well. Deadline says that other "tough guy" actors will join up in the coming weeks.

With this news, Levitt has now dropped talks with Marvel Studios over GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. So as you may have expected, the hunt is still on for the role of Peter Quill aka StarLord. He also just turned down the leading role in GODZILLA...now we know why.

One role that still needs casting is Ava. Angelina Jolie had to decline early on in development because she was pregnant. So the production actually waited with baited breath for her to pop that kiddo out so she could come to work on the film. Later it was reported that Rachel Weisz had replaced Jolie. Since then, nothing has been said about either actress taking or not taking on the role. Wonder who will take it on...

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is set to release October 4, 2013.

This is Great BUT...

... I am still waiting for the Rodriguez/Depp reunion for the continuing adventures of the blind CIA Agent Sheldon Jeffrey Sands and his little side kick. Roaming around Mexico helping people fight the Cartels and sh*t. Awesome! Though this is good news about Sin City 2 as well.

It all comes down to who will play Ava that ultimately decides the fate of this movie.

At this point, JGL brings a lot more to the table than Depp can. Agreed?

The inclusion of JGL into any project is always welcome news. Despite the fact that (sadly) Brittany Murphy and Michael Clarke Duncan won't be back (RIP), my anticipation is now starting to build momentum; the only way they could fuck this up is if they completely miscast Ava Lord.

Having said that, I would still support the casting of Jolie or Salma Hayek, even though they've been rumoured for it since, like, the first film came out. Then again, if Jolie and Hayek are a little too obvious

Then again, if Jolie and Hayek are a little too obvious of a choice by this point, Alexandra Daddario, Eva Green or Alice Eve would do nicely, I think.

And yes, I also seem to recall Depp's name being thrown around for the role of Wallace.

Awesome... But what?

JGL will fit into this series PERFECTLY!
But who is "Johnny?" The only character that goes by that name was in "Booze, Broads, and Bullets" from the short "Daddy's Little Girl." It would be strange for him to come on board for such a small role, especially since the description doesn't sound like that character at all. But then you mentioned that Johnny Depp was originally offered the role, but wasn't he only ever associated with the character Wallace from "Hell & Back" back when they were

It would be a shame if they are trying to create more original material, while there is so much more available material from the books they haven't used yet.

(Spoilers)
I hope this is getting mistaken for JGL playing Dwight for the first half of the film before Clive Owen takes over.

I'm just going to assume Michael Madsen is going to make himself available again for the role of Bob.

I could completely see him as part of that world. From John Blake to Johnny! Man, this guy is on a roll.

Perfect casting as far as I am concerned. He's the type of actor who fits in perfectly with the Sin City universe.

Does this mean that Michael Rosenbaum can play Star Lord now?
