New York, NY January 7, 2013 – Dimension Films announced today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (LOOPER, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) is joining the all-star cast as one of the lead characters in the highly anticipated SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. The film is the follow up to co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s 2005 visually groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY. Other major casting announcements will continue to follow.

Gordon-Levitt will play “Johnny,” a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.

“Johnny is a new character in the Sin City world and we are excited for what Joseph will bring to the role,” said Rodriguez and Miller.

Gordon-Levitt most recently wrote, directed and stars in DON JON’S ADDICTION which will premiere this month at Sundance and also stars Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

The ensemble includes already announced original cast members Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Rosario Dawson as “Gail,” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Dennis Haysbert as “Manute,” and Jamie Chung as “Miho”. Production is underway at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

The original SIN CITY broke new ground with its iconic stylish look. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will not only bring fans back to the world that Miller and Rodriguez created, but also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D.

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 by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013 and is produced by Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.

So, has Mickey Rourke actually signed up for this? Last time I read anything about it he was slagging the movie off.

Which is a novel thing for him...

@Lozzy94 I wouldn't worry. Having a small role in a Rodriguez picture is like a day's work at best. The reason he managed to get so many big-name actors in the first "Sin City" was because it was easy to schedule since some of the actors didn't even need to be on set at the same time in order to make the movie work. Elijah Wood and Mickey Rourke have two fight scenes together but they never actually met on set. Since the film is highly-stylized, it's easier to hide the seams of digital trickery. So they could theoretically just have JGL show up one day, do all of his scenes by himself, and then digitally paste him in later.

I'm not say JGL will definitely be Star Lord, but if he won't be, it isn't going to be because he was too busy with "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For". Besides, we're talking about a guy who was in 4 movies last year, two where he was the main character and two where he was a major supporting character. I think he can manage.

Idk how I feel about new stories being incorporated. Miller has been sort of mediocre as a writer in recent years. Would probably be best to stick to older stories
