<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Clive Owen Confirmed For SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR?

The actor is now set to reprise his role as Dwight McCarthy in the upcoming sequel, while Robert Rodriguez comments on the film being closer to the style of the comics than the first movie and whether or not Angelina Jolie will be involved.



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.
