"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" has cast Eva Green as a femme fatale and Julia Garner to portray yet another stripper struggling to make a dime in the gritty comic-book metropolis.
Green ("Casino Royale") will appear in the sequel to the 2005 hit, "Sin City," as a deadly muse named Ava Lord. Garner ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower") plays a stripper who appears in scenes with Johnny, a cocky young gambler played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Like the first film, "A Dame to Kill For" is adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novels.
Miller, who is co-directing with Robert Rodriguez, says Green's character is "every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.”
“Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of 'Sin City.' From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green," Miller and Rodriguez added in a statement. "We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."
Green and Garner are newcomers to the sequel, along with Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jamie Chung.
Returning from the first "Sin City" are Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Jaime King, Michael Madsen and Rosario Dawson.
The sequel is currently filming at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas and is scheduled for an Oct. 4 theatrical release.
