Briefly: As if the cast for Robert Rodriguez‘s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For wasn’t impressive enough, three more stars have been added: a Goodfella, Catwoman’s accomplice and Ari Gold. Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven have been cast in the film joining the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung.

Who exactly each will play, or exactly how large each role is, remains unclear. But when the sequel to the 2005 film hits on September 13, they’ll be there. [The Playlist]

Briefly: Very few things about filming a Robert Rodriguez movie are similar to your standard, effects-laden blockbuster. Case in point: his October 2013 film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The sequel to the 2005 film brings back most of the cast of the original (such as Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke) with several new additions. The movie has been filming in Rodriguez’s Austin studios for several months. As usual, Rodriguez does everything in house and on his own.

Production is now coming back from a holiday break and even though much of the film has already been shot, major casting continues. Monday, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was revealed to be joining the film and Tuesday, Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Man of Steel) joined the cast. Beyond the fact that the character is a cop we aren’t sure exactly who he’s playing, but the role is said to be one of the leads. [Deadline]

Update: Josh Brolin has been confirmed to play Dwight, the character played in Sin City by Clive Owen. Details of that are after the break. Read More »

It seems no one in Hollywood can make a big-budget movie these days without sitting down with Joseph Gordon-Levitt at some point or other. In the past few months, he’s been rumored for Warner Bros.’ Justice League and tested for Guardians of the Galaxy. Just hours ago, we learned he’d actually been offered (and turned down) Gareth Edward’s Godzilla. Now Dimension Films has announced that he’s signed on for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s long-awaited comic book sequel. More details after the jump.
