Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson returning to Sin City

Apr. 19, 2012by:

Now that SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is officially greenlit and moving forward we can expect a bevy of casting announcements to come down the pipe before filming gets underway.  It's one of the more exciting aspects of the process, so it'll be fun to hear who's coming on board.  And with that, we have our first two confirmations; Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson. 

Here's what Rodriguez had to say:

"[Rourke is] all excited to come back, but he's probably the first one," Rodriguez said. "I saw Rosario [Dawson] 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."

A Dame To Kill For is one of the best Sin City stories by Frank Miller in my opinion.  It features a ruthless beauty named Ava (who Rodriguez originally courted Angelina Jolie to play) who works over Dwight in more ways than one, causing him to enlist his old pal Marv for a little revenge.  It's a great, hard-boiled story, and I can't wait to see it in motion.

In terms of getting Clive Owen back for the role of Dwight, Owen had this to say, while promoting his new film INTRUDERS on MTV:

"Listen, I had a fantastic time with [Rodriguez] on that movie.  I thought the movie was seriously groundbreaking. I'm a big fan of it as a movie. So yeah, of course I would be interested in doing it — but I really don't know what the state of it is."

Rodriguez begins filming MACHETE KILLS next month and will go directly into SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR.  Expect more casting announcements as they roll in.

Will Rodriguez redeem himself after a shocking run of movies over the last 5 years? I hope so!

So, it IS HAPPENING, right?

Nope, won't believe it until I see a damn trailer! Rodriguez doesn't deserve my trust after ALL THIS TIME.

I hope they keep in mind that A Dame To Kill For is a prequel to The Big Fat Kill and so Dwight will have a different look than what he did in the first movie..That being said Clive Owen should definitely be brought back.

Great to hear Rourke is back!

TIDBIT: The Hard Goodbye and The Big Fat Kill we're my favorite stories but theres still plenty to get excited with the sequel. I know they wrote some original stuff but i wonder if they'll include "To Hell and Back" and "Family Values". Don't see why not?

Until I see a photo of Rosario carrying a set of hand-cuffs and an Uzi again, I'll believe it when I see it!

(OMFG she's so HOT!)
