One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was writer-director Jill Soloway’s Afternoon Delight.  Starring Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor and Jane Lynch, the film’s about a L.A. housewife that “puts her idyllic hipster life in jeopardy when she tries to rescue a stripper by taking her in as a live-in nanny.”  Featuring great performances from the entire cast, the film was well received by audiences and critics and Soloway won the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award during the closing night festivities.

The day after the premiere, I landed an extended interview with Juno Temple.  We talked about how she got involved in Afternoon Delight, how much changed during production, how 2012 was an extraordinary year as she played a normal girl from the 70s, a schizophrenic, a stripper/prostitute, and a fairy, and more.  In addition, we also talked about making Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Alexandre Aja’s Horns (which stars Daniel Radcliffe), and Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Hit the jump to watch.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt had a pretty good year in 2012 and is currently being offered/rumored to star in everything under the sun.  He recently passed on the Godzilla reboot and Guardians of the Galaxy, but has been confirmed for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Perhaps the hottest rumor of late is that Gordon-Levitt will be appearing in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel in a Batman cameo or in Justice League as the Caped Crusader.  This was apparently news to Gordon-Levitt, who had a good, if calculated, reaction to this question during a recent interview.  He also talked about working with director Robert Rodriguez in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Hit the jump to watch the interview.

The cast for Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For continues to fill out rather nicely.  In a recent interview at Sundance, the sequel’s co-director confirmed Bruce Willis‘ return and spoke on a number of other casting decisions, such as the part of Ava Lord which is still vacant at this time.  Willis played eternally tough cop Hartigan in the 2005 original and will presumably return in the role.  Rodriguez also spoke about the use of 3D in the sequel.

Yesterday, we reported the exciting news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was set to co-star in Robert RodriguezSin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Today, two more terrific actors have joined the cast.  Dimension has announced that Josh Brolin will play the lead role of “Dwight”.  The role was originally played by Clive Owen in the first Sin City, but since A Dame to Kill For is a prequel, it explains why Dwight looks different (it also explains how Mickey Rourke is back to play Marv).  In A Dame to Kill For, “Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell.”  Brolin is a great choice for the role, and I’m eager to see how his performance will compare to Owen’s.  Deadline is also reporting that Christopher Meloni has signed on to play a disreputable cop.  Look out for Evil Stabler!

The Joseph Gordon-Levitt news continues.  As the multitalented actor prepares to unveil his feature directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival, he’s been the focus of quite a few news stories over the past week.  We learned last Wednesday that Gordon-Levitt had been added to the list of contenders for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and earlier today it was reported that he passed on a role in Warner Bros.’ Godzilla reboot.  Now it appears that Gordon-Levitt has settled on his next project, as he has committed to a lead role in director Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For after turning down the Guardians gig.  [Update: Gordon-Levitt released a statement to explain why he is drawn to the Sin City world: "I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality.  Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr. Rodriguez."]

Sin City 2, aka Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which began shooting in Austin yesterday, has added Jaime King in a returning role and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), who replaces Devon Aoki.  Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are teaming up once again for the sequel to their 2005 hit adaptation. Their co-written script is a mingling of Miller’s comics’ storylines as well as a new story written just for the film by Miller.  One plot was taken from the 1993 comic, “A Dame to Kill For,” and centers on a man named Dwight and his entanglements with a femme fatale named Ava.  Additional info on casting, such as the possible return of Clive Owen and much more, follows after the jump.

Rosario Dawson Confirms Her Return for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

rosario-dawson-sin-city-2-a-dame-to-kill-for

With production looming closer, we’re starting to get word regarding the final confirmed cast for director Robert Rodriguez’s long-in-the-works sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Back in April we heard that Rosario Dawson was planning on reprising her role as Gail in the follow-up, but subsequent press releases for the film left her name off the cast list.  Now the actress herself has confirmed her involvement to E! Online:

“It’s in! It’s happening! Can’t tell you nothing.”

If I remember correctly, prostitute dominatrix Gail shows up about halfway through Frank Miller’s graphic novel , but the protagonist of A Dame to Kill For is Dwight.  That character was played by Clive Owen in the first film, but in A Dame to Kill For he has a different face.  We still haven’t heard if Owen will be back or who (if anyone) is taking on the character in the sequel, but Dawson is a welcome addition to the cast.  Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on October 4th, 2013.

Mickey Rourke in Talks to Return as Marv for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

sin-city-2-mickey-rourke

Back in April, director Robert Rodriguez said Mickey Rourke was on board to reprise his role as Marv, the murderous brawler with a heart of gold, for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Speaking to MTV, Rodriguez commented “[Rourke is] all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one.”  Then in May, Dimension Films sent out a press release stating that Rourke and Jessica Alba were both set to return. However, according to Deadline, Rourke is only now entering talks for the upcoming prequel.  Marv is one of Rourke’s better performances, and I’m eager to see him reprise the role even though it won’t be a lead performance this time around.

Hit the jump for the synopsis of Frank Miller’s graphic novel.  Rodriguez is currently at work on Machete Kills, but once he’s finished with that film, he’s planning to immediately start work on A Dame to Kill For.  As for Rourke, yesterday he signed on to co-star in Albert Hughes’ upcoming crime drama, Motor City.

Release Date Announced for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR; Jessica Alba to Return; Film Will Be in 3D

sin-city-jessica-alba-slice

Dimension Films has set the release date for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  In a press release, the studio announced that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s sequel to Sin City will open in 3D on October 4, 2013.  The press release also confirms that Mickey Rourke will return to play Marv (because A Dame to Kill For is really more a prequel than a sequel), and adds that Jessica Alba will reprise her role as Nancy Callahan.  We previously reported that Rosario Dawson would be returning at Gail, but the press release makes no mention of the actress.  Rodriguez and Miller co-wrote the screenplay with Oscar-winning screenwriter Willliam Monahan (The Departed).  Dimension says, “The script and details of the film’s story are being kept tightly under wraps,” but you can find a synopsis for Miller’s graphic novel after the jump.

Currently, the only other film set to be released on October 4, 2013 is Henry Selick‘s untitled animated film.
