Jaime King (pictured; Silent Night, Mother’s Day, My Bloody Valentine 3D) and Jamie Chung (The Hangover Part II) have boarded Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which began shooting on Monday in Austin, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Robert Rodriguez is directing the movie with Frank Miller, the comic book icon who created the “Sin City” comics that were published by Dark Horse in the 1990s. Rodriguez and Miller teamed up for the stylish 2005 hit adaptation. Rodriguez and Miller wrote the script for the new movie, which is a combination of comics storylines and a new one written specifically by Miller for the movie. One of the storylines being adapted is “A Dame to Kill For,” originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava.
Many of the original castmembers are returning for the sequel, including Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. (Rourke’s character Marv was killed by electrocution in the first movie but the Dame’s story takes place before and after that film’s events.) King played the golden-haired prostitute Goldie in the first movie and returns to play her twin sister, Wendy. Chung is stepping into the heels worn in the first movie by Devon Aoki, the katana-wielding, roller-skating assassin Miho. The character plays a key role in helping Dwight locate the double-dealing Ava.
An October 4, 2013 date is still set.
