Josh Brolin Lands the Role of Dwight in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill ForEven more casting news has come in for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For as The Weinsteins have announced the addition of Josh Brolin to their ever-expanding rogues gallery of colorful characters. Read on for details.

From the Press Release
Today Dimension Films announced another big name that has been added to the SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR cast roster, further ramping up the ensemble - Academy Award® nominee Josh Brolin (GANGSTER SQUAD, MILK). Brolin will star as “Dwight” in the follow-up to FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY for co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. The part of the “Dame” has yet to be cast.

Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

"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," said Rodriguez and Miller.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town's most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

The star studded ensemble includes already announced original cast members Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Rosario Dawson as “Gail” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute” and Jamie Chung as “Miho.” Production is under way at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller.

The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013, and is produced by Robert Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist. International sales are through Aldamisa International.

I was wondering what they were going to do about the 'new face' aspect of the story...couldn't have picked a better actor for it.

Now, hurry up and film the damn thing!

So no Clive Owen after all? :( I like Brolin... but he's no Clive! But I guess it makes sense if his face is changed.

Five bucks says they'll bring in Owen for the final leg of the story, once the Brolin version of the character undergoes the surgery to change his face.
