Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been shooting their long-awaited sequel ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ for a few months already, but in the last two months, a few big names have been added to the cast. The biggest news was that Josh Brolin would be replacing Clive Owen as Dwight, but names like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, and Juno Temple aren’t exactly nobodies. Now, it appears that the directors have added a few more to their massive cast, include the title character.
First, according to Super Hero Hype, ‘American History X’ and ‘Batman: Mask of the Phantasm’ star Stacy Keach has signed on to play the mob boss Wallenquist, who is known as “The Kraut”. Miller says that the character is “the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil.” This certainly sounds like a departure from his role in the forgettable sitcom, ‘Titus’.
Next, thanks to the press release shared by Collider, we learned that Julia Garner of ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ has been cast as a young stripper named Marcy. Maybe we’ll see her alongside Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan, who is also returning for this film.
Finally, Eva Green, who was last seen in Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’, will fill the role of Ava Lord, the dame described as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, [but] she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares”. Here’s what Miller had to say about giving the gorgeous Green the role:
“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.”
Keach, Garner, and Green are now ready to join the rest of the all-star cast at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas as they bring to life more classic stories from Sin City, as well as some news ones created specifically for the film.
