will reteam with Robert Rodriguez
for the Sin City
sequel to play Herr Wallenquist
aka the Kraut
, the chief villain in Rodriguez and Frank Miller
’s planned Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
We thought Eva Green
was the last to join the star-studded cast as the ‘dame’ of the title Ava Lord, but not so. Rodriguez describes Keach’s character as ‘the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City,’ adding that ‘he is pure evil.’
In the fictional universe of Miller’s Sin City, Wallenquist also proves to be one of the few men able to resist Ava Lord’s wiles, in one of his rare appearances, it can be seen that his face and neck is heavily marked with scars or burns.
Keach who last worked with Rodriguez on Machete will join Bruce Willis
, as well as Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Michael Madsen, Rosario Dawson
and Jamie King
are all returning, alongside newcomers Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Haysbert, Julia Garner
and Juno Temple
Production is already under way at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will open nationwide on October 4th, 2013.
Keach recently completed filming Alexander Payne’s black-and-white road trip film Nebraska.
