In their interview with director Robert Rodriguez at Cannes Film Festival, Empire confirms that Clive Owen (who played Dwight McCarthy in the 2005 adaptation of Frank Miller's Sin City) will reprise the role in the upcoming follow-up, A Dame To Kill For. He joins previously confirmed cast members Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba, who reprise their roles as Marv and Nancy Callahan, respectively. Concerning more casting, Rodriguez says that he would soon be meeting with some “seriously big names” for the film, which will shoot back-to-back this summer with Machete Kills.

Additionally, Rodriguez promises that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be even more super-stylised than the original movie, and the look will be closer to that of the graphic novels. “I really held back the first time, because I didn’t know whether audiences would go for it. So it ended up looking like a real movie, but in black and white, with a few flourishes. This one is going to push way further towards the books. It’s going to shock and surprise people.”

Responding to speculation that Angelina Jolie will play Ava Lord (the titular 'dame' and femme fatale), the director doesn't confirm or deny. “It’s a great part for any actress,” he said. “She’s completely diabolical with no mercy. She’s as evil as evil gets.”

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is set to hit theaters October 4th, 2013.

UPDATE: Empire has updated their article saying that Clive Owen's return has not yet been confirmed. Be sure to tune in for more Sin City: A Dame To Kill For news in the near future though.

Awesome, he did a great job on the first!

I forgot about Clive Owen. Great actor but I haven't seem him in that many movies anymore.
dellamorte1872 - 5/20/2012, 3:12 PM
he'll be in make-up like 90% of the time
soberchimera - 5/20/2012, 3:19 PM
Well its not like he was doing anything else.

Awesome sauce.

@Setgecko I see what you did there.
RR51 - 5/20/2012, 3:26 PM
Clive Owen for Lex Luthor

CoolantTech - 5/20/2012, 3:44 PM
@SetGecko are you retarded or stupid, Micky Rourke's Marv was the best thing about Sin City, so I guess you suggest they get some no-acting X wrestler to play the part just because he's closer to the hieght he's supposed to be, the movie would not have had the same effect, one weak link would've spoiled the whole movie.

This is why ther're in charge of casting and your'e just an observer.

Cool beans.
CCB1984 - 5/20/2012, 3:58 PM
shouldn't this be deleted if the update confirms Clive isn't back?

marv 7ft comic version

mickey rourke 5ft 11 inchs

difference of 13 inchs(1.1 ft too short)


bane 7.5ft comic version

tom hardy 5ft 9.5 inchs

difference of 20.5 inchs(almost 2ft too short)

mickey rourke is closer to his comic counter part in look & size than tom hardy.

@setgecko Cry about it. Just wait til he makes you all eat your words! Then you'll see! Wah!

:P

His "Taste of your own medicine" scene definitely trumps Batman's.
BlazinTexan - 5/20/2012, 4:03 PM
mickey rourke as marv is one of the best casting choices ever
nuck82 - 5/20/2012, 4:07 PM
agreed, rourke rocked marv
tjbpinkfloyd - 5/20/2012, 4:16 PM
Thing is, his character looks different in the prequel so it could be a new actor with cameo by him with his new face at the end. That, or they could do prosthetics.

I wasn't that "wowed" by Sin City, but wish they wouldn't have waited so long to follow-up with a sequel.
BooYah - 5/20/2012, 4:23 PM
It's been a while since I seen the first one. Probably should do some catching up.
marvel72 - 5/20/2012, 4:30 PM
@ intruder

i agree,its definetly my favorite non marvel/dc comic book movie.
pro346 - 5/20/2012, 4:47 PM
Best cbm ever!
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/20/2012, 4:48 PM
I hope Kevin (Elijah Wood in one of the most psychotic roles ever) comes back.
Its been awhile when i last read A Dame To Kill For so i dont remember is he in it but still it would be great if he returns.

Manute VS. Marv match i remember and cant wait to see it on the big screen. :)
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/20/2012, 4:49 PM
Correction: Not psychotic but maybe creepiest. :)
Folchibas - 5/20/2012, 4:50 PM
Of course him and Alba are reprising their roles. It's not like their doing anything worthwhile in film right now anyways.
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/20/2012, 4:51 PM
Hope Clive comes back too.
Action - 5/20/2012, 6:19 PM
Good, they need Clive in this one anyway. He is the main character in this volume. I think he gets revenge on the chick, right?
jambabeanjuice - 5/20/2012, 6:49 PM
@AlexDeLarge87 The Manute Vs. Marv fight will be one of the things to look forward in this movie.

Glad that Clive Owen will reprise his role as Dwight and with Mickey Rourke also on board this will be one hell of a movie! Really can't wait for this!
longbowhunter - 5/20/2012, 7:19 PM
A Dame To Kill For is my favorite Sin City story. I was beginning to think this would never see the light of day. Getting really excited now!!!
JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2012, 7:27 PM
Yay! I guess! I hope this movie is like the first movie and end up like The Spirit!
xstryker - 5/20/2012, 10:06 PM
I assume you mean "and NOT like The Spirit"
Jollem - 5/20/2012, 11:47 PM
the Spirit was obviously light-hearted and also supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. i think there are so many people who are oblivious to that fact. look at the source material folks if you've never had already. how could they make something like that a movie in today's times with so many bitchy, uninformed people who really don't know shit about what they are talking about spouting nonsense all over the digital place, ready to rip into anything if it's not cool enough for them? i enjoyed the Spirit. that's cool if others didn't. well directed movie.
the sin city comics were an experience as was the movie when i saw it in the theater. based on what mr. rodriguez just said here, i'm thinking this will be another theater-worthy film.
MrChuff - 5/21/2012, 12:40 AM
Awesome...more of his hideous "American" accent.
mob7medina - 5/21/2012, 2:16 AM
Good news!The first movie was one of the best CBM's can't wait for this one!!Rourke played a great Marv btw..
Dedpool - 5/21/2012, 7:52 AM
Loved the first film, and an even MORE stylized film? Hmmm. I'm thinking Sin citty meets Scanner Darkly, but with out as much distortion?
BmanHall - 5/21/2012, 8:45 AM
Good news and Clive Owen should be Punisher.
