Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin and Chris Meloni Join Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

The last 24 hours have been huge for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller! They announced some pretty spectacular additions to the already all-star cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Early in the hours, they announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be added to the cast as a brand new character named "Johnny". He is "a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game." Sounds perfect for JGL, who has really risen to bigger stardom these past few years than ever before. He was offered role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and turned it down. That is ballsy move and smart move on his part. This film is better suited for him.

The next big announcement was Chris Meloni will be getting some silver screen time (much needed)! His role is a bit vague at the moment with the exception of him being a lead and playing a police officer (go figure, but still awesome).

The last one of the day was pretty awesome in my book. Josh Brolin will play "Dwight", who we previously saw in the first film. Your probably (or not) thinking "hey Clive Owen played Dwight first, why is Josh Brolin taking over?!). Well, since this is a prequel we will see how Dwight ends up with a handsome british face and not a Brolin face. I am very excited to see where this will go and how it will turn out on film. Rodriguez stated ""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," .

The filming is currently underway at Rodriguez's own Troublemaker Studios.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will hit theaters on October 4th.
