Well, that’s kind of a confusing headline. What do we mean? To put it simply Devon Aoki‘s Katana isn’t the only new DC Comics character to join the cast of the third season of Arrow, as Superman Returns star Brandon Routh has now signed up to play Ray “The Atom” Palmer in the CW series. And nope, this looks like no mere cameo either as Routh has been booked for what looks like an extended stay in Starling City. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that the CW‘s hit show Arrow has cast Devon Aoki (Sin City, 2 Fast 2 Furious) as a recurring guest star for season three and beyond. What DC character will she portray? (more…)
Production is finally underway for the long awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller‘s Sin City
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, began filming on Monday with two actresses familiar with the genre. Jaime King is returning for the sequel, playing the sister of her character from the first movie, and Jamie Chung is playing the role Devon Aoki had in the 2005 original.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of both actresses joining the cast, which already includes returning actors like Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. Rourke’s character, Marv, was killed in the original film, but this sequel precedes he’s “shocking” execution.
The only missing pieces we know of so far, are the major roles of Ava and Dwight. As noted in the Hollywood Reporter’s article, Angelina Jolie‘s role will now have to be recast as she is not is likely to appear and the same goes for Clive Owen. His role as the red sneakered bad body in the 2005 original will most likely be recast; seeing as how Sin City 2 we’ll see Dwight prior to the facial reconstruction we all saw in Sin City.
So, not only is production under way without a complete cast, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set for a October 2013 release. That gives Rodriguez less then a year to shoot and edit the entire movie. That’s a tall order. Especially, when you consider the fact, that he just wrapped Machete 2 and has to oversee it’s post production.
I for one, am I little concerned the sequel won’t get the care it deserves. We’ve waited 7 years for this, and it’s feeling rushed. Not to mention the lack of returning actors. You can already tell it just won’t be the same
