Joseph Gordon-Levitt is largely considered to be on top of the world at the moment thanks to "Inception," "The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper" and his many other cinematic conquests, and whaddya know? The kid's stock is still on the rise.

As scooped by HitFix last night, Jgl has indeed just joined the long overdue "Sin City" sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."

Levitt's been tapped to portray Johnny, a pro gambler straight from the School of Cool - a role which was written specifically for the movie and previously offered to Johnny Depp.

While Marvel might be lip-quivering over him thusly passing on their potential "Guardians of the Galaxy" opportunity (he is a DC Comics guy, after all), it appears Levitt's pretty darn excited right about now.

"This one's no mere rumor, and it's gonna be fun as f--k," he tweeted in the wee hours of this morning to confirm. »
