SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR gets its dame… Eva Green cast!

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have finally found their dame.  Years ago when the project was first talked about, Angelina Jolie was being courted for the role, however with time come changes.  Now, former Bond girl, Eva Green has nabbed the role of the Ava Lord, AKA, The Dame.

Dimension Films announced today that Eva was taking the role and a quote from directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller:

“We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. 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. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”

What’s interesting is that Eva Green is also set to star in another Frank Miller movie this year in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE.  Miller must really like her.  Maybe he considers her a muse….

Eva Green will be joining returning cast members Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King as well as newcomers Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Julia Garner.  Two roles from the previous film have been recast.  Miho, previously played by Devon Aoki is now being played by Jamie Chung (SUCKER PUNCH) and Manute, previously played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan will now be played by Dennis Haysbert (The Unit, 24).

So what do you think of this casting?  Should they have gone for Angelina Jolie or are you happy with this. Sound off below.

SYNOPSIS: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

In “Sin City: 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” (featured in the film “Frank Miller’s Sin City”) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is set to hit theaters on October 4, 2013.
