"Manute is a character that has been part of the heart of the Sin City tales, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan beautifully established that role onscreen. We could not tell the story of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For without Manute and are thrilled to welcome Dennis Haysbert to the cast."
In the original Sin City, Manute kidnaps Gail (Rosario Dawson), prompting Dwight (Clive Owen) to trade Gail for the head of Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro). The cinematic sequel is based on the first of Frank Miller's graphic novels, where the hulking bodyguard/chauffeur works for the femme fatale Ava Lord's husband Damien Lord.
Sin City stars Mickey Rourke (Marv), Jessica Alba (Nancy), Rosario Dawson (Gail), and Jaime King (Goldie) are returning, with Jamie Chung replacing Devon Aoki as Miho.
Production is currently on a break in Austin before resuming full-time in January. Dennis Haysbert can currently be seen in The Details and Wreck-It Ralph.
