Just announced a few weeks ago is that Desperado director, Robert Rodriquez, has been tapped by Dimension Films to direct the comic book adaptation of Sin City. Now that the film is a go, casting is already beginning, and when you see this list of stars, you are going to either throw up all over yourself or jump in the air and scream! Here’s a taste – Benicio Del Toro – read on for the rest!
According to the Hollywood Reporter Robert Rodriguez is packing up a U-Haul with a host of top talent in hopes that they’ll move into “Sin City,” which he is directing for Dimension Films.
According to multiple sources, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Willis, Elijah Wood, Mickey Rourke, Brittany Murphy, Kate Bosworth and Jaime King have been targeted for the film, an adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel series. Some of the actors have already signed on for parts in the pic, while others are only in discussions or have just received offers to join the cast. Other names being bandied about include Benicio Del Toro and Maria Bello, though offers had not yet gone out to either as of late Wednesday.
Set to start shooting shortly, “Sin City” will be composed of three intertwining vignettes revolving around a dark set of characters that call the fictional corrupt town home.
