After major doubts about his status, Bruce Willis is now confirmed to star in Robert Rodriguez's Sin City sequel A Dame To Kill For. Bruce Willis' character John Hartigan committed suicide in the original film, and is only likely to appear in flash backs, though his actual involvement is still unclear at this stage. Rodriguez did however confirm to MTV that he will be back;
"Bruce is back, so you'll be seeing him."
Willis is the latest Hollywood actor confirmed to reprise his role from the original, joining Clive Owen and Jessica Alba as recurring characters Dwight McCarthy and Nancy Callahan respectively - though Owen will only appear in post-facial reconstruction scenes, with McCarthy being largely portrayed by Josh Brolin in the sequel. The film will see Dwight hunted down by the only woman he has ever loved, Ava Lord (not yet cast), and will depict how he came to have a different face (and thus can be portrayed by two separate actors). Also returning are Mickey Rourke as Marv,", Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy, with Dennis Haysbert taking over the role of Manute from the late Michael Clarke Duncan and Jamie Chung portraying Miho. Much like its predecessor, Sin City 2 will be broken up into different chapters; A Dame to Kill For, Just Another Saturday Night and The Long Bad Night, set after Hartigans suicide. The Long Bad Night will introduce Joseph Gordon-Levitt's original character "Johnny", which Rodriguez explained a bit about;
"It's a new character. He plays a gambler, a very cocky gambler, who comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story's called 'The Long, Bad Night.' He beats the wrong guy in a game and bad stuff happens to him."
Christopher Meloni, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Ray Liotta also make up the cast. Already filming at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Texas, A Dame To Kill For will be presented in 3D upon its release later in October, and the director claims that it will "blow our minds".
"We're really playing with stuff because that's a very two dimensional world and to see that stylization in 3D, it'll blow people's minds. 3D hasn't been used like this yet."
