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.
