The exciting casting confirmations continue today for the hugely anticipated follow-up to 2005’s cult classic Sin City. In addition to Mickey Rourke opting to return as the brute Marv and Jessica Alba as Stripper Nancy, Rosario Dawson in an interview with E! Online confirmed she would return as Gail, the leader of Old Town in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be based on both the Frank Miller graphic novel from which this film gets its name as well as original material penned recently by the author himself.
The film will serve as both a prequel and sequel to the original with one story focusing on Dwight McCarthy (played by Clive Owen in the first) and his lust for vengeance against an old flame named Ava Lord and the other story focusing on Nancy continuing her quest against those who framed Detective Hartigan.
As was the case with Sin City, Dawson’s Gail will play a large role in helping Dwight carry out his revenge, albeit against different foes.
Check out what she had to say:
“It’s in! It’s happening! Can’t tell you nothing. I think Gail is pretty much Gail. What you see is what you get. I don’t think she’s going to be poppin’ out any babies and singing any songs or anything like that. What’s actually really fun about it is that we get to investigate it a little bit more into the storyline that was actually in “Sin City 2″ – that middle chapter which is where Gail mostly was. Investigate a little more as to who is this man and what are they talking about when he’s got a different face.”
The eight-year gap between films has had many fans (this one included) chomping at the bit to see Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller bring to life another chapter of the sordid world that is Basin City. Finally, after so much waiting and wishing, things are coming together.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters October 4, 2013.
