In an interview with MTV director Robert Rodgriguez has confirmed Bruce Willis‘ return as a police detective John Hartigan. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will, therefore, re-team Willis with his Looper past-self Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as well as returning Sin Citizens Jessica Alba, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, and Mickey Rourke.
Bruce is back, so you’ll be seeing him.
Jeremy Piven, Juno Temple, Christopher Meloni, Josh Brolin, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, and Ray Liotta round out a star studded ensemble cast. Additionally, Rodriguez revealed a few more details on Gordon-Levitt‘s character:
It’s a new character. He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler, who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story’s called ‘The Long, Bad Night.’ He beats the wrong guy in a game and bad stuff happens to him.
However, the role of femme fatale Ava Lord still hasn’t been cast.
We have some choices in mind (for Ava Lord but) we haven’t finalised the casting. She doesn’t shoot for a couple weeks.
The sequel will be presented in 3D. Director said:
We’re really playing with stuff because that’s a very two dimensional world and to see that stylization in 3D, it’ll blow people’s minds. 3D hasn’t been used like this yet.
Look for A Dame to Kill For in theaters on October 4th, 2013.
