Rodriguez returns behind the camera with Frank Miller for the sequel to the cult classic 2005 original film, based on Miller’s series of comics.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently joined the project as one of the leads, Johnny. Josh Brolin is also newly cast as Dwight, played by Clive Owen in the original, with the character undergoing facial reconstruction (hence the new casting).
And now The Playlist report that a trio of roles have now been cast, with Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, and Juno Temple all boarding the project.
I’m a huge fan of Piven’s in particular, and love everything that I’ve seen Liotta and Temple in as well, and can’t wait to see them join the already-exceptional cast at the end of the year.
Starring alongside Gordon-Levitt, Brolin, Piven, Liotta, and Temple will be Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung, Mickey Rourke, Jaime King, Michael Madsen, Rosario Dawson, and Dennis Haysbert. And with a bit of luck, we might get to see Bruce Willis and Clive Owen reprise their roles from the original, too.
Rodriguez and Miller are once more co-directors on the project, with the duo penning the script alongside William Monahan (The Departed).
Filming has already begun, with production kicking off back in October last year. But with Rodriguez and Miller once more making good use of green screens, there’s no need to be concerned that Piven’s, Liotta’s, or Temple’s roles will be minor. Their roles are currently being kept under wraps, but are very much something to look forward to.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be hitting theatres on 4th October this year, and you can bet it’s going to be one of the best films of the autumn/fall. More as we get it.
