- SIN CITY A DAME TO KILL
Julia Garner has joined the cast of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is now filming in Austin at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios. Garner, an up-and-comer whose credits include Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, will play a young stripper opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Johnny in the follow-up to 2005's Sin City, adapted from Miller's own graphic novel series.
Eva Green (Dark Shadows, 300: Rise of an Empire, Casino Royale) has also joined the cast and is set to star as the film's deadly muse, Ava Lord.
Ava, the iconic character from Miller's graphic novel of the same name, is described by Miller as "every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she's also every man's darkest nightmares."
Rodriguez and Miller said, "We've been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."
Also onboard for Dimension Films' October 4, 2013 release are Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Chris Meloni, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Bruce Willis.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank 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.
In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to "The Big Fat Kill" and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.
