Josh Brolin and Christopher Meloni also sign up for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
I got very excited and then very conflicted when I saw the news that Josh Brolin was joining SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. On one hand, having Brolin reunite with his PLANET TERROR director ensured a good time would be had on the set, but it would come at the price of Clive Owen's involvement. Brolin will be taking over the role of Dwight, which Owen originated in the first SIN CITY film.
From the press release: Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.
"Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and "A Dame To Kill For" is a defining episode in his life. We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight," said Rodriguez and Miller.
Dwight is an important character that connects many of Frank Miller's stories together and Brolin will do a fine job taking over the role. But, I am a big Clive Owen fan. Hopefully Owen will find a way to show up for a cameo. But, we have more casting news. On top of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin, we have word that Christopher Meloni is joining the SIN CITY sequel as well, playing a cop. Another great addition to the cast.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR still needs to cast the vital role of Ava since Angelina Jolie is no longer involved. Aside from that, the cast now includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Jaime King, Michael Madsen, Dennis Haysbert, and Jamie Chung. It is slated to open on October 4, 2013.
