Josh Brolin has signed on to join the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Dimension films announced the news today via press release, revealing that Brolin will play Dwight, the character Clive Owen played in the original film. As revealed in that film, Dwight had plastic surgery to get a new face, which explains the casting change.
In the story "A Dame to Kill For," which takes place before the events in Sin City, Dwight finds himself hunted down by Ava Lord, the only woman he has ever loved. Rodriguez and Miller said in the announcement, "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."
Brolin joins newly-cast members Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christopher Meloni in the film, as well as Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung. Production is underway at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas with an October 4th release date targeted.
