Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson to Return for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

Last week, we reported that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s Sin City 2 had finally secured financing, and that filming was due to take place this summer.  The sequel, officially titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has now lined up its first two actors by bringing back Sin City stars Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson.  Since A Dame to Kill For is actually a prequel, it allows room to bring back popular tough guy, Marv (Rourke), and prostitute dominatrix, Gail (Dawson).

Hit the jump for more.

Here’s what Rodriguez told MTV about bringing back Rourke and Dawson:

“[Rourke is] all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one,” Rodriguez told MTV of returning players. “I saw Rosario [Dawson] too. I ran into her for something else, and she’s pumped. They’ve always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun.”

The protagonist of A Dame to Kill For is Dwight McCarthy, who was played by Clive Owen in Sin City.  However, the first movie combined Books 1, 3, and 4 of Miller’s gritty series of graphic novels (The Hard Goodbye, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow Bastard, respectively).  Dame is the second book in the series, and Dwight has a different face.  If Owen were to return, the filmmakers could slather him in make-up, but it would probably be easier to simply recast part up until Dwight gets his Owen-face.

Here’s the synopsis for Frank Miller‘s A Dame to Kill For.

Stuck with nothing but a seedy gumshoe job and some demons, Dwight’s thinking of all the ways he’s screwed up and what he’d give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb gray hell that is his life. And he’d give anything. Just to feel the fire. One more time. But he can’t let himself lose control again, can’t ever let the monster out. And then Ava calls.
