Director Robert Rodriguez's highly-anticipated sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will feature a number of Sin City stars, such as Jessica Alba as Nancy, Mickey Rourke as Marv, and Rosario Dawson as Gail. The filmmaker also confirmed that Bruce Willis will return as Hartigan.

" "Bruce is back, so you'll be seeing him."

The director also spoke about Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, who we first reported on earlier this month.

"We can't wait for him to come play with us. It's a new character. He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler, who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story is called 'The Long, Bad Night.' He beats the wrong guy in a game and bad stuff happens to him."

He also spoke about shooting this sequel in 3D, and how they are using the new 3D cameras from James Cameron and Vince Pace.

"We're really playing with stuff because that's a very two dimensional world and to see that stylization in 3D, it'll blow people's minds. 3D hasn't been used like this yet. We're using the latest James Cameron and Vince Pace cameras. They just got off the factory line. They look like Ferarri's. They're beautiful. They're small, compact, but they're still Alexa's. They're fast. They're not slowing us down at all."

One role that has still not been filled is The Dame. Robert Rodriguez revealed they still have a few choices they are eyeing for the role.

"We still have The Dame. We have some choices in mind, but we haven't finalized anything. She doesn't shoot for a couple more weeks."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was released August 22nd, 2014 and stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe. The film is directed by Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez.

    Good casting. Hopefully Jessica does another dance for us. That would be nice in 3D :)

    @crypt Who have they replaced? I know that they replaced Michael Clark Duncan's character because, well, he passed away (RIP Michael Clark Duncan), but Josh Brolin is now Dwight because Dwight is supposed to have a different face in this story. Is there anyone else you are talking about?

    They already replaced a few other actors, I'm already mad. If they replaced Willis too, I'd be full on pissed. So this is good news.

    @cheetoboy Angelina Jolie as the Dame, hmm. Maybe she's one of the choices they have in mind, considering this is mentioned in the article > "We still have The Dame. We have some choices in mind, but we haven't finalized anything. She doesn't shoot for a couple more weeks." ?

    I'm really happy that Bruce is back, the cast is coming along very well. I really hope Angelina Jolie will be casted as the Dame.

    @justatadmatt Exactly what @narrator said. In the first film, when Hartigan went to prison, Nancy was still a child. So for both Willis and Alba to be in the film together, they must 1) be in different points of time, or 2) Hartigan is in prison.

  13. the Narrator

    @justatadmatt - This story takes place between the start of Hartigans tale, which is before he's is locked up, and his release. Thus, Hartigan would be in prison at this time, or they simply wouldn't have Alba in the role of Nancy, seeing as she wouldn't be that old yet. That's what I think @ejk1 was questioning.

    @ejk1 this is a prequel to the first one. Marv is back as well...

    Very curious to find out who they choose for the dame.

    If Alba is in this, unless they are in two different points of time, shouldn't Hartigan still be in prison?

    It has been a WHILE since I last saw Sin City. But it's good to see that Bruce will be back.
