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.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Concept Art Reveals James Spader’s Ultimate Form

Oct 24 2014 11:07am CDT | Source: Collider

After the unexpected trailer release this week, we sort of got the idea of what Avengers: Age of Ultron would look like.  But what we didn't get was a super clear image of Ultron's final design in the film (most of the footage of him appears to center on his incomplete form).  But now some concept art has hit that rectifies that issue.  In the film, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Joh ...

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 prede ...
