As one may expect, the likes of Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King are back playing Nancy, Gail, and Wendy (Goldie’s twin sister) respectively. However, the rising starlet Jamie Chung will be stepping in for Devon Aoki to play the beautiful assassin Miho. Chung’s work can also be seen in this year’s Premium Rush, last year’s psychedelic Sucker Punch, and The Man with the Iron Fists, which is due out later this week. Oddly enough, Mickey Rourke will also be returning as Marv despite his character’s fate in the 2005 original.
No word has been provided on Clive Owen‘s character, Dwight , as of yet, but he is expected to return as the chivalric ladies’ man. His character supposedly undergoes a radical face change to protect his identity, and another actor – presumably with less in the looks department – should also be joining him to play Dwight. Another character, named Ava, needs to be cast, as does a newly created gambler named Johnny.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For should see the return of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez at the helm. While Frank Miller has been quite the busy bee in producing a script – writing new characters and slightly different stories for returning characters – Rodriguez has just finished Machete Kills, which is set for an early 2013 release. Hopefully, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will mark his second for the calendar year.
2005’s Sin City pushed the envelope in terms of using a blue/green screen along with live action. The end result was nothing short of a brilliant portrayal of the grit and grime found in Frank Miller’s comics. Hopefully, Rodriguez and Miller can rework their magic in the long awaited sequel (or is it a prequel?) and give fans something decent to talk about. After all, they have been waiting 8 long years.
