There’s some new images and information making the Internet rounds for directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s second film in the Sin City franchise, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. We get our first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character Johnny, Jessica Alba‘s super-sexy-dancer Nancy, and Mickey Rourke‘s tough as nails Marv.
Lets get right to it. First out of the gate in Entertainment Weekly‘s look at Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is Jessica Alba’s Nancy:
For those of you on mobile devices, here’s the important bits of the picture’s text:
Nancy Callahan is still dancing at Kadie’s, but she’s changed since John Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death in the original cult classic. “She’s out for revenge, ” says Miller, who codirected the film. “She is sick of being treated -as she puts it- ‘as a piece of ass.'”
Robert Rodriquez, who also returns to co-helm the project, adds: “You see a little girl in that first film. by the end of this, she is an avenging angel.”
Don’t remember Nancy having a story in the original comic? You’re right, Miller wrote this story arc specifically for the movie along with the new material for Gordan Levitt’s Johnny character.
Next up is a look at Marv and Johnny:
This is our first look at the new character Johnny, in that little box on the bottom corner. If you think it looks like he’s having a bad night, you haven’t even scratched the surface of his troubles. The Long Bad Night follows Gordon-Levitt’s hard luck gambler character Johnny as he makes a mistake. The mistake, as director Rodriquez puts it:
He beat the wrong guy at poker.
Of course that’s Mickey Rourke there, big as life, as the hard to kill tough guy Marv. He might be kinda slow, but he’ll eventually figure it all out and come for you and yours. Marv (Just Another Saturday Night) and Dwight’s (Josh Brolin in A Dame to Kill For) stories are both right out of the comic.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theater screens August 22nd. The rest of the talented cast is rounded out by Juno Temple, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, and Stacy Keach.
