It’s worth remembering that before the recent brouhaha about Edgar Wright and Ant-Man that this episode wasn’t the first time that Marvel Studios has struggled in its relationship with talent. There was Terrence Howard‘s somewhat unceremonious replacement as James “Rhodey” Rhodes in the Iron Man movies, and there was that time Eward Norton‘s Bruce Banner suddenly looked a lot like Mark Ruffalo. But in in one specific case, it appears that bygones aren’t yet bygones. During a recent interview, actor Mickey Rourke re-affirmed that if he gets a collect call from Marvel, he will not be accepting the charges. (more…)
SIn City: A Dame To Kil For
That’s “Bad to the Bone” in case you’re scratching your head. Yes, here we have another relic from Comic Con weekend in the form of a new trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and yes, it’s definitely NSFW (Not Safe For Work). There’s some discrete nudity, swears galore and lots and lots of violence. The new film from co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, looks like it’s ripe to pick up where the 2005 left off with all the bad guys and bombshells of Basin City (AKA: Sin City) trying to outwit, outplay, and outlast each other. Meaning? Let’s roll the clip. (more…)
Getting its own panel in Hall H today is Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In attendance will be Miller, director Robert Rodriguez, as well as some of the cast. Again, Rush Urbalejo will be bringing all the updates as they come. Take it away, Rush! Panel starts 2:50pm PST. (more…)
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.
