Just last week, we reported the news that Bruce Willis would be returning to Sin City in Robert Rodriguez’s long-awaited sequel, A Dame To Kill For. Now Rodriguez and co-director and creator Frank Miller have found said Dame, with the announcement the Vesper Lynd herself, Eva Green, has been cast as the sequels titular character Ava Lord.
Said Rodriguez and Miller on the announcement: “We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”
Described as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.” Green is certainly fits the bill, as her sexy and enticing performances in Casino Royale, The Dreamers and most recently in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows show.
In addition to Green, actress Julia Garner, who you may have seen in small roles in Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, has been cast as a stripper in the segment featuring The Dark Knight Rises and Looper star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For sees Green and Garner joining Willis and Gordon-Levitt, as well as retuning stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King, and newcomers Josh Brolin (replacing Clive Owen), Dennis Haysbert (24), Juno Temple (Killer Joe), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) and Jeremy Piven (Entourage).
