One of the remaining casting holes in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For was filled when MTV caught up with Robert Rodriquez at Sundance. Rodriquez confirms that Bruce Willis will be back to reprise his role as John Hartigan. The other big Sin City role that is still waiting for a final casting decision is the role of Ava Lord.
We have some choices in mind [for Ava Lord but] we haven’t finalized the casting. She doesn’t shoot for a couple weeks.
Rodriquez also talked about the shooting already completed:
[Juno Temple] just shot, she was fantastic. Her and Ray Liotta played together, they were amazing. Jeremy Piven shot just last night… we were shooting last night, all night. There are some characters from the book. It might surprise people who they play and the turns that they do… Bruce [Willis] is back, so you’ll be seeing him…
He also spoke about shooting the film in 3D and it’s effect on the film style:
We shot this in 3D. We didn’t shoot Sin City in 3D. I wouldn’t want to convert that one probably. The difference in shooting it is just… you can’t even compare.
Because this is a very two dimensional world it’s very stylised. To see that kind of stylisation in 3D will blow people’s mind.
You can check out the whole chat in the video below. Are you excited to see this movie really moving forward?
Word is that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has added Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Jeremy Piven (Entourage). What characters the three will play is anyone’s guess at the moment.
The movie will follow the original movie and comics form of multiple short stories set in the same world. The stories and a short idea of each plot:
A Dame to Kill For:
Dwight McCarthy is called by his former lover, Ava Lord, who wants his help to escape her abusive husband, billionaire Damien Lord. However, Dwight soon learns that Ava’s true intentions are much sinister than they appear.
Just Another Saturday Night:
On the night John Hartigan met back up with Nancy in That Yellow Bastard, Marv regains consciousness on a highway overlooking the Projects, surrounded by dead young guys, unable to remember how he got there.
The Long Bad Night (Original Story):
Set after Hartigan’s suicide at the end of That Yellow Bastard, Nancy tries to survive the remainder of the night with Roark Junior/Yellow Bastard’s men on her trail.
Untitled Original Story:
Johnny, a cocky gambler, disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.
The movie is set to hit theater screens on October 4th.
After the dreadful Spy Kids: 3D you’d think that Robert Rodriguez would realize that his talent is in larger, more adult oriented films. But, throwing caution to the wind he say’s “Fuck you”. That’s right, it’s yet another Spy Kids movie, this time focusing on new family in the Rodriguez universe. Not only that, but this film will incorporate the highly advanced science of putting smells on cards in their attempt at making the movie 4D. Hell yeah, their making the movie a “scratch and sniff” experience. Please let there be a Jessica Alba card, pretty please.
Dimension Films has released the first trailer for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, opening in 3D and 2D theaters on August 19th. Did we mention it’ll be in 4D?
Written and directed by Robert Rodriguez, the family action adventure stars Jessica Alba, Jeremy Piven, Joel McHale, Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook, Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. It hits theaters everywhere August 19th, 2011.
