Last week we shared the latest casting news for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but that wasn’t the end of the list of big names being tied to the project.
Last night, news broke that Bruce Willis will be back for the sequel, reprising his role as Detective John Hartigan in the follow-up to the 2005 hit. Rodriguez himself confirmed the actor’s return to MTV, saying “Bruce is back, you’ll be seeing him.” That sounds like great news to us, even if it’s not exactly a surprise.
This wasn’t the only detail Rodriguez was willing to divulge, either. The director also shed some light on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character (he’ll be “a very cocky gambler who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game”), and revealed that the dame in the film’s title has not been cast. Rumors have long been that Angelina Jolie would play the part. Rodriguez says there’s still time to figure out the casting because the role isn’t scheduled for filming for a few weeks.
With that in mind, expect at least one more major casting announcement for the film, which is due in theaters later this year.
Meanwhile, in other exciting casting news, it looks as though Toby Jones will return for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Jones essentially confirmed he’ll be back as Arnim Zola in the new sequel, which takes place in the present day and not Cap’s distant past. Because of this, we’re assuming Jones will primarily appear in flashbacks, but that’s still good news.
HeyUGuys caught up with the actor at the 2013 Critics’ Circle Awards. You can catch the footage of the interview below.
