Theres is an official release date for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” from Mexican-American director Robert Rodriguez. It is scheduled for release October 4, 2013.
Rodriguez wrapped up “Machete Kills” in 29 days before jumping into “Sin City 2” and is shooting on his soundstages in his native Austin. But while the movie may be underway, casting for major parts is still underway. So far, the only Latinas casted are Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, who played Nancy Callahan and Gail respectively. Alba received a lot of screen time and her character was key for many scenes along Mickey Rourke.
Rourke’s character, Marv, was killed in the original film but this story precedes that tragic fate. Of note in the article, too, is the fact that Angelina Jolie, who was expected to play the major role of Ava, is not likely to appear. So that role is still being cast. Same goes for Dwight, originally played by Clive Owen. Owen was expected to return but apparently Dwight’s story in “Sin City 2” sees him get facial reconstruction so they will likely just recast the character.
Rodriguez and co-director Frank Miller wrote the script for the new movie, which is a combination of comics storylines and a new one written specifically by Miller for the movie. One of the storylines being adapted is A Dame to Kill For, originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava.
