Josh Brolin cast in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Jan 9 2013, 10:18am CST | by

Josh Brolin will play the lead in 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'.

The Oscar-nominated actor has been cast as central character Dwight McCarthy in co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's prequel to 2005 blockbuster 'Sin City', taking over from Clive Owen who played the hero in the original crime thriller.

The filmmakers said: ''Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and 'A Dame To Kill For' is a defining episode in his life. We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight.''

Dwight - one of the best-loved characters from Miller's original graphic novels - will be hunted down by the only woman he has ever loved, Ava Lord, before he ''watches his life go straight to hell'', according to Collider.com. The evil 'Dame' has yet to be cast.

'Gangster Squad' star Josh, 44, is also joined by 'Law & Order' actor Christopher Meloni, who will draw upon his TV experience to play a dodgy cop.

Josh last appeared in 'Men in Black 3' alongside Will Smith and is renowned for his Academy Award nominated 2008 performance in Gus Van Sant's 'Milk'.

It was recently reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is negotiating a ''core'' role as 'Johnny' in the film noir style feature, a part originally offered to Johnny Depp.

Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung also star.

'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' is set for release in October 2013.

Review: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Aug 22 2014 11:57pm CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

It's been nearly a decade since Robert Rodriguez's stylish adaptation of Frank Miller's Sin City comic book series shook up the megaplexes with a darkly humorous brand of pseudo-noir. Unfortunately, the long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill doesn't prove to be worth the wait. Whereas the first film  was kitschy, ambitious schlock, its sequel is a monotonous, shallow, parody of its predecessor. Rodriguez and Miller play up the nihilism, misogyny, sadism, a ...

Sin City A Dame to Kill For Review: Sinful, And Not in a Good Way

Aug 22 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

It may have taken nine years to follow up Sin City, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are back at it again with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and it does have several things going for it. The cast is clearly much more comfortable acting in a green screen environment than there were for the first one. And the technology to create a world that completely doesn’t exist except in the mind of a graphic novel artist and a supremely talented filmmaker has f ...

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Review

Aug 22 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a jumbled but still enjoyable followup that, for most moviegoers, arrives on the scene too late. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For presents another glimpse at the twisted stories of Frank Miller’s BaSin City, where crime lords and crooked politicians compete for control of the streets. In a place like Sin City, savage thugs Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) can be heroes – in ...

Another ‘Inherent Vice’ Image Captures a Shaggy, Carefree Joaquin Phoenix

Aug 21 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

A second image has arrived from Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice. And while it’s very much in the vein of the first (above) the shot is a good chance to pass along comments about the movie from someone who’s seen it. I’m becoming tremendously excited for this one; just the prospect of having PTA adapt a Thomas Pynchon novel makes me giddy. Of all the things to fancast and dream of seeing, a proper Pynchon film has been at the for ...

The best role in Sin City: A Dame for Kill For goes not to Josh Brolin, nor Eva Green, but the corrupt city itself.
