In the midst of all of the anticipation and never-ending character list for the upcoming Sin City sequel, there appears to be a marketing change in the works. A slight, but noticeable tweak has been made to the title of Robert Rodriguez’s follow-up. As depicted in a piece of promotional art at the American Film Market, the film now bears the title Sin City: A Dame To Die For, rather than Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Here’s a photo of the film’s new poster, captured by Bloody Disgusting:
Whether this change is simply a change in preference is yet to be seen, as it is also possible that the change was made to tone down the aggression of the title, and imply a more honorable story.

Robert Rodriguez seems to have enjoyed working with Lady Gaga on Machete Kills, which would explain why he recently cast her in a reportedly small role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Shocked? Neither are we. After all, it makes sense for the upcoming film to feature one of the most theatrical, over-the-top performers in the world in a cameo.
Even Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s in on it. In an interview with Jamn 94.5, he admitted to feeling a bit reluctant to work with her at first, yet she gradually earned the actor’s respect:
“She’s a great actress. And I didn’t know that. You know she came in and I was like, ‘Okay, sure, they’re having a huge pop star do a scene in the movie, I understand,’ but then she came in and like, nailed it! She had her character down, and she was like »

Truth be told, up until very recently, not only had I not seen a single The Fast and the Furious movie, I wasn’t really in any great rush to do so either. I’d heard from various sources that the first outing was an over the top piece of guilty fun, but after that they all kind of tailed off. That all changed however when Fast Five came out in 2011 to extremely warm critical reviews.
Bringing some familiar faces from the rest of the series back into the fold and adding the man-mountain that is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was a clear statement of intent that this instalment was not doing anything by halves. Here was a movie that took being massively Ott to new heights and gleefully reveled in its ridiculous nature. Reviews suggested Diesel and Johnson came together like a beefed up version of De Niro and »

With Fast & Furious 6 on the horizon, we revisit the entire series from beginning to end, and dig out our favourite moments...
It's strange to think that it's well over a decade since the Fast franchise began. But like a juggernaut rolling down a hill, this ageing series shows no sign of slowing down; in fact, this year's Fast & Furious 6 will be joined by yet another sequel, Fast Seven, due out in cinemas next year.
But given that the Fast movies now have such a long history, with various stars fading in and out of them as the past decade has rolled on, perhaps it's a good time to look back at how the series has evolved, and work out how its events will lead up to Fast & Furious 6...

The first Fast movie is something of a Frankenstein’s monster of a movie. »
Robert Rodriguez tweeted out our first look at Josh Brolin as Dwight in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. We've got a behind the scenes photo of the actor surrounded by green screen, as well as a little mock rendering showing us what the finished product may end up looking like. The photo came with the following note,
Here's bad ass Josh Brolin driving a Rodriguez-mobile. (A green box with a steering wheel bolted on)
It's gotta be hard shooting a movie like this with really nothing to work against except a green screen. In the end it looks really cool, but it looks like it could be pretty boring for the actors.
The movie also stars Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, and Jamie King who are reprising their roles from the first film. Then there's Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert who are replacing Devon Aoki and Michael Clarke Duncan. »

While Twitter can be a fun outlet for complaining about movies and stalking celebrities, it is also a useful tool that filmmakers use to share updates about their latest projects. Earlier today, director Robert Rodriguez shared the first photos of Josh Brolin as Dwight in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The character was originally played by Clive Owen in the first Sin City. While the director hasn't really made it clear why he re-cast a few of the roles (he also swapped out Devon Aoki for Jamie Chung as Miho), this new incarnation of Dwight looks like quite a force to be reckoned with. Take a look at these photos, along with the filmmaker's tweets.

Robert Rodiguez and Frank Miller are currently in the process of making Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and as you know, many cast members of the original movie will be back to reprise their roles. Until now, we didn't have confirmation on if Bruce Willis would be back, but in a recent interview with MTV, Rodriguez confirmed his return, which is pretty cool.
Bruce is back, so you'll be seeing him.
He also talked about Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, described as a smooth talking gambler named Johnny. But the director goes on to reveal more about the role that he plays in the story, saying,
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 »

The cast of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's hotly-anticipated sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has added another three names with Ray Liotta (Killing Them Softly), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) and Jeremy Piven (Entourage) all signing on for as-yet-unrevealed roles.
The follow up to the cult 2005 comic book adaptation will see the return of Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) as Marv, Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four) as Nancy, Rosario Dawson (Trance) as Gail, Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine) as Goldie / Wendy, and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) as Bob. Dennis Haysbert (24) has taken over from the late Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute, while Jamie Chung (The Man with the Iron Fists) replaces Devon Aoki as Miho and Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad) succeeds - well, precedes, chronologically - Clive Owen as Dwight. Also set to feature in the cast are Alexa Vega (Machete Kills), Chris Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit »

Even though Robert Rodriguez's follow up to Sin City, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, is set for release on October 4th, he's still adding cast members with Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven being the latest to sign up.
They will join returning cast members Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke. Other new additions include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin (who will be replacing Clive Owen as Dwight), Dennis Haysbert (replacing Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute) and Jamie Chung (replacing Devon Aoki as Miho).
Robert Rodriguez will co-direct with Frank Miller, creator of the comic book series and co-director of the first film (as well as director of the frankly awful The Spirit) and the movie will shoot at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios. »

2005's Sin City featured a sprawling cast committing spectacular acts of comic book-styled violence. Sleeky realized by Robert Rodriguez, the crime thriller based on Frank Miller's grisly graphic novels wowed critics and awed audiences to the tune of $158 million worldwide. But clearly the acting community also impressed as a number of notable stars are falling all over themselves to be a part of Rodriguez's long-delayed sequel. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will see Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jaime King reprising their roles from the first film, with Jamie Chung, Dennis Haysbert and Josh Brolin stepping in to replace Devon Aoki, Michael Clarke Duncan and Clive Owen respectively. Now, as the hotly sought sequel rolls into production, The Playlist has gotten word that Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven have joined the cast that also includes Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Chris Meloni.

This follow-up to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City features returning cast members as well as a number of new actors, some taking on previously established roles. Mickey Rourke (Marv), Jessica Alba (Nancy), Rosario Dawson (Gail), and Jaime King (Wendy) are reprising their original roles. Jamie Chung is replacing Devon Aoki as Miho, Dennis Haysbert takes over for the deceased Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute, and Josh Brolin steps in for Clive Owen as Dwight.
Just recently Dimension Films announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has joined the movie in the key role of Johnny as well as it was revealed that Christopher Meloni is part of the production. Meloni (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) has signed on to play a disreputable cop.

Brolin will play Dwight, the same character played by Clive Owen in the 2005 original. This marks the third such re-casting of a role from the first film. The others being Dennis Haysbert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan, and Jamie Chung replacing Devon Aoki.
In 'Dame,' Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. His storyline is set prior to the events in 2005's "Sin City" and will explain how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

Only a day after it was revealed that "Looper" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be joining the cast of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," two more thesps have been announced for the hard-boiled follow-up. "Gangster Squad" star Josh Brolin and "Law & Order: Svu"'s Christopher Meloni have both signed on for the upcoming graphic novel adaptation, joining an all-star cast that includes returning members Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jamie King and newbies Dennis Haysbert (stepping in for the late Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute), Jamie Chung (on board to replace Devon Aoki »

Brolin joins original Sin City cast members Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King, and Rosario Dawson, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was announced as joining the cast yesterday. Other cast replacements include Jaime Chung taking over for Devon Aoki and Dennis Haysbert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
In a statement, directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller say, "Dwight is a constant character throughout the 'Sin City' world, and 'A Dame to Kill For' is a defining episode in his life. We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight."
Dimension Films has now announced that Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad) and Chris Meloni (Law & Order: Svu) have landed lead roles in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Brolin will play Dwight, previously played by Clive Owen, and Meloni will be playing a cop in the film. I imagine the cop is going to be a hard-edged type character. Meloni is a solid actor who also was in HBO's Oz series, and you all know Brolin kicks ass as an actor.
Just last night it was announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt also took on a main role in the film of a character named Johnny. Gordon-Levitt has since released a statement on being cast in the film saying,
I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality. »
