The upcoming sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has officially announced the acquisition of its main star. Playing the role of embattled protagonist, Dwight, is Josh Brolin.
Some who have been following this film's progress may be left scratching their heads, since Clive Owen was all but a lock, seeing as he played the role in the first Sin City film in 2005. (And played it well.) However, in true Sin City fashion of chronological chaos, this sequel, is, in part, a prequel.
Taking place well before his days of having discussions with dead bodies while night driving, Dwight, finds himself in an ordeal, torn between his feelings for a wicked woman named Ava, who always seems to bring trouble his way. -- Not to give away too much, but the lasciviously-manipulative Ava ropes Dwight into an tangled web of murder, making him a target for dangerous people, culminating in the need for a bit of facial plastic surgery.
...Which means, it could be the case that Josh Brolin plays Dwight for the majority of the film, before he goes under the knife and awakens as Clive Owen.
The news comes just after we've learned of the addition of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christopher Meloni to the already-stacked cast. As of now, they are still looking for the film's titular "dame" in the sexy, sinister, Ava.
