Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows no sign of slowing down after a stellar 2012, he will be joining the Sin City sequel A Dame To Kill For. According to Empire, he’s got a lead role in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s graphic novel sequel to the amazing Sin City. He will play Johnny, an ultra-smooth character that didn’t appear in the novels, but was created specifically for the film.
JGL said in a press release “I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality.” Gordon-Levitt says in a statement. “Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr Rodriguez.”
The cast for the film which is now shooting includes Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung, Alexa Vega, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Dennis Haysbert and Bruce Willis.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The film will be released on October 4, 2013.
We have a release date for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel (but it’s more of a prequel) to Sin City will open in 3D on October 4, 2013. Mickey Rourke will return to play Marv and Jessica Alba will reprise her role as Nancy Callahan. Rodriguez and Miller co-wrote the screenplay with Oscar-winning screenwriter Willliam Monahan (The Departed). Here is a synopsis via Amazon.
Remember 7 years ago when Sin City punched audiences in the face with how awesome it was? Remember how almost every month since then there have been rumors about Sin City 2? This may be hard to believe now but Sin City 2 is actually going to happen. It was announced that Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions and Alexander Rodnyansky’s AR Films will partner with Dimension Films on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is set to begin filming this summer.
Sin City, creator/co-director/writer Frank Miller said: “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.”
Rodriguez has said that the plot will involve three separate stories from Miller: A Dame to Kill For and two new ones that have yet to be announced. Casting is set to begin next week with much of the original cast returning. Miller’s A Dame to Kill For features the character of Dwight, played by Clive Owen in the 2005 film, so let’s hope they get him back.
FYI: It’s about time.
Robert Rodriguez revealed at this year’s Comic-Con that Frank Miller has a script written for Sin City 2 and they could end up filming this year. It looks closer to reality now after years of speculation with Rodriguez revealing the film now has its financing:
Sin City 2 is going good, we’re just finishing the script for that, we already got the money. We have everything we need so we can just start shooting as soon as we get the pages. And it’s the same thing for Machete 2. We’ve already got the budget, just waiting for the script. As soon as we’re finished writing we get to start the shoot.
I can’t say I have a lot of faith in this considering the sequel was talked about heavily as soon as the first Sin City was released to great reaction and a strong box office performance. I loved Sin City and after all these years I have to admit they will have to pull out all the stops to gain my interest in a sequel. Angelina Jolie in the fan made poster to the left might be something to consider Mr. Rodriguez.
My brother and I rented this game so often that we should have just bought the damn thing, you know those games. I think I rented WWF’s No Mercy for the N64 about twenty times at $5 a throw down, mental. Mutant League is still the best Hockey game of all time in my books. What other hockey game can you punch, kick, clothesline, and decapitate all while holding onto the puck. Brilliant. The fights were straight forward unlike the games of today where you have to press 4 different buttons in sequence just to block. In MLH (we played it for the Sega Genesis) there are special plays that can cause things to happen like making the puck explode when it is picked up by an opposing player, bribing the referee to call fake penalties against the other team, and land mines and holes on the ice. The crowd is prone to throwing weapons or other powerups onto the ice; they may be picked up and used freely. When a player dies, their corpse remains on the ice and may be tripped on. Case closed.
