Josh Brolin Joins Robert Rodriguez And Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

130108_BrolinOscar-nominee Josh Brolin is joining the cast of the next Sin City, joining fellow cast members Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and more.

Brolin will star as Dwight in the follow-up to Frank Miller's 2005 Sin City. In the latest installment, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell.

Chronologically, this story takes place prior to "The Big Fat Kill" (featured in the film Frank Miller's Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Dame weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town's most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.  

"Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and A Dame To Kill For is a defining episode in his life.  We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight," said Rodriguez and Miller in a statement.

The part of the Dame has not yet been cast and production is currently underway at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin, TX.

The film, which was developed by Miller based on his graphic novel, will be released by Dimension Films in North America October 4th.
