Surprise! Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Looper, 50/50) will be taking a lead role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Per Deadline he will “play the role of Johnny, a part that the filmmakers originally offered to Johnny Depp. He’s one of the core characters in overlapping story lines…” I kind of hope they change his name to “Joey” or something so we won’t always be reminded that he wasn’t the first choice for the part.
He joins Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Michael Madsen, Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert in the film currently being co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.
In theaters October 4, the film is about Dwight McCarthy planing to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy is trying to cope with Hartigan’s death.
