SIN CITY Sequel Casting News; PACIFIC RIM Trailer

Second update, 1/8: And here's one more piece of Sin City A Dame to Kill For casting news: Josh Brolin has been confirmed to play Dwight, as revealed in a press release from Dimension Films.

Dwight was played by Clive Owen in the 2005 original, but there's a storyline reason for the shift: The character has facial reconstructive surgery between A Dame to Kill For and The Big Fat Kill, the Dwight-centric story depicted in the first film.

Update, 1/8: Another actor has joined this year's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For: Law & Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni, as reported by Deadline.

Meloni will play a cop in the film, though no further details have been released yet.


And in more Hollywood news, here's the latest Pacific Rim trailer, which debuted at the currently ongoing CES show in Las Vegas:

Original story: Joseph Gordon-Levitt will indeed be starring in a new comic book movie, but maybe not the one you expected.

The increasingly ubiquitous Dark Knight Rises and Looper actor has committed to the role of Johnny in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, according to Deadline. Production has already begun on the film, a seque to the 2005 original scheduled for release on Oct. 4 of this year, and again co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and series creator Frank Miller.

Rumors surfaced earlier last week that Gordon-Levitt was a potential candidate for the lead part of Star-Lord in Marvel Studios' 2014 feature Guardians of the Galaxy, but Deadline reports that he's now officially out of the running for that role.
