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

     August 7, 2012


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.

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.
