Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (No Country For Old men, Gangster Squad) has been cast as “Dwight” in the Frank Miller/Robert Rodriguez-directed Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In “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” and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. The “Dame”has yet to be cast.
He joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt, added yesterday to play the role of Johnny, alongside Christopher Meloni, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Michael Madsen, Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert.
In theaters October 4, the 3-D 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.
