If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Remember when Robert Rodriguez told us we'd be getting a 'Sin City' sequel? This was right after the release of the first film based on the graphic novel series by Frank Miller. For years it seemed a promise that would go unfulfilled, but then just a few days ago, the official announcement came down from Dimension that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' was going into production. With casting in full effect, Rodriguez revealed during an interview that two of the original film's principal actors are already on board for the sequel: Mickey Rourke ('Iron Man 2') and Rosario Dawson ('Unstoppable') Here's what he had to say...
"[Rourke is] all excited to come back, but he's probably the first one. I saw Rosario [Dawson] too. I ran into her for something else, and she's pumped. They've always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun."
So there you have it, at least two of the original members of the band are returning, now we just have about a dozen more to confirm, right? Whether you love or hate Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin City,' it should be noted that Mickey Rourke's performance, as the goon extraordinaire Marv, is outstanding. I haven't read 'A Dame to Kill For,' but I don't think it's making a huge logical leap to assume that the plot will have to focus on events that took place prior to his 'Hard Goodbye' storyline featured in the first film. As to Rosario Dawson, I've heard her character is pretty crucial to 'A Dame to Kill For,' which is awesome. I was hoping to see more of her character in the sequel and it looks like I just might get my wish. I'm not sure I ever doubted that these two actors would return. It'll be far more interesting to see what new blood gets added to the mix as the casting process continues. What do you guys think?
Are you excited to see these two return? Without spoiling too much, can our well-read Spillios tell us a bit about 'A Dame to Kill For?'
