Though there was some chatter about it undergoing a name change recently, Robert Rodriguez confirmed to us that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is the title for his upcoming comic book sequel. Here's further evidence in the poster, which is now online via Yahoo.
The film, as with the first, is keeping stylistically close to Frank Miller’s work, with the Sin City creator once more returning to co-direct with Robert Rodriguez. This one brings back several stars from the original, including Bruce Willis as Detective John Hartigan and Mickey Rourke as the misunderstood bruiser Marv (despite both characters dying). Femmes fatales Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jamie King are also back.
Joining the cast are Josh Brolin as Dwight (taking over from Clive Owen), and Eva Green as the seductive Ava Lord, the titular dame. The ensemble is filled out by the likes of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ray Liotta and Jeremy Piven, with Dennis Haysbert inheriting the role of Manute, originally played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is set to arrive in UK cinemas on August 29.
