Seems there hasn’t been much promotional material released for Robert Rodriguez’s highly anticipated sequel to Frank Miller‘s SIN CITY, which is titled SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, but EW just posted a couple of new images featuring Jessica Alba (once again playing “Nancy”), Mickey Rourke (once again playing “Marv”), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a new character named “Johnny” – this being the first time we’ve seen a glimpse of him from the film.
EW also let loose some new info on the plot of the film:
Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan is still dancing at Kadie’s, but she’s changed since John Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death in the original 2005 cult classic. “She’s out for revenge,” says Miller, who co-directed the film. “She is sick of being treated — as she puts it — ‘as a piece of ass.’” Robert Rodriguez, who also returns to co-helm the project, adds: “You see a little girl in that first film. By the end of this, she’s the avenging angel.” Alba’s acting work has taken a backseat to other endeavors in the past few years, but Miller assures us that she is “eight times the actor [that she was] when I did the first film.”
Mickey Rourke reprises his role as the murderous Marv with his signature flattop ‘do and stern demeanor for Miller’s story “Just Another Saturday Night.”
And Joseph Gordon-Levitt gets in on the action, too, playing the hard-luck gambler Johnny. Miller penned a new story for Gordon-Levitt’s segment, but Rodriguez and Miller remained tight-lipped on the specifics of the plot. “He beat the wrong guy at poker,” teases Rodriguez. “It begins the journey that describes the title of his story: ‘The Long Bad Night.’”
