MTV News recently had the opportunity to sit down and discuss with cult classic legendary director Robert Rodriguez on the upcoming, long-awaited sequel to Sin City, as well as the character role for the recent casting announcement of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He goes on to discuss that his role is, “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 is called ‘The Long Bad Night.’ He beats the wrong guy in the game. Bad stuff happens to him. Bad stuff.“. No release date for Sin City 2 has been announced. (Via: Ain’t It Cool News)
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR has been an interesting piece of filmmaking, with tidbits leaking out in pieces and waves as to who’s in it, what they’ll be doing, etc. There’s a reason for that, which Rodriguez talked about recently with MTV News, “…we’ve been just sort of piecemealing, shooting bits and pieces as actors become available. So all three stories still have a little bit of footage to be shot in them.” I’ve been hearing that’s how the production has been progressing, with more than a few roles yet to be cast, even as they’re in the middle of production, because Rodriguez is waiting to see if some of their desired choices can make the time to shoot a role or if he’ll then have to look into other options.
