Josh Brolin Off To Sin City Sequel

No Country For Old Men

With the cameras cranking and the blue/green screens up, casting announcements for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For are coming thick and fast. Yesterday brought word that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been cast in a new character role. Now that has been followed with the news that Josh Brolin and Christopher Meloni are aboard.

Brolin, it seems, will be bringing his recent, MIB III-showcased expertise at playing characters in their younger days for the film, as he’s signed on to take over Dwight from Clive Owen. Dwight’s story in Dame is a prequel tale that sees him hunted down by Ava Lord, the only woman he ever loved. His life goes into the gutter and he ends up with a completely different face later in life (hence the actor swap). “Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and A Dame To Kill For is a defining episode in his life,” Rodriguez and Miller said in a statement picked up by Collider. “We’re looking forward to Josh’s take on Dwight.”

Meloni, meanwhile, will be playing a tough-nosed cop, a role that will see him draw on years of policing experience from the Law & Order franchise and his darker sides acting on iconic HBO prison series Oz.

So that makes the current roster as follows: Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung. We can expect Sin City: A Dame To Kill For in cinemas either later this year or early next after hitting US screens on October 4.

L: doubtlesswonder I'll be glad to see less of Clive Owen. The man is just wooden and- for me- it's a real chore sitting through his parts of the first film. eah the less we see of him the better. The guy has one of the shittest American accent i've had the mis-pleasure of hearing. He's like Dick Van Dyke in reverse. More

RE: RE:
Josh Brolin seems to be one of those actors who has a odd choice in picking his parts. For someone who,in my opinion,is so talented yet to be appear in somewhat average to poor films is frustrating as a fan.Hopefully this time he has chosen wisely. More

RE:
L: evildave69 Why isn't live Owen doing it? Not that I've got anything against Brolin, infact, he's teriffic, and really fits into the world of Sin City. It's just a shame Owen won't be reprising his role. f Owen does reprise his role, it'll be an extended cameo. In A Dame To Kill For, Dwight has a different face through the majority of the story, and has facial reconstruction surgery towards the end. More
