Director Robert Rodriguez shared in a recent interview that he expects many of “Sin City’s” actors to return for the sequel, and it turns out three of them already have. Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson and Michael Madsen have all expressed interest in reprising their roles in “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.”
“We haven’t done any casting yet, except for the people who we know are already in it and returning. ‘A Dame to Kill For,’ all those people come back. I just had lunch with Mickey this weekend. He’s all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one,” Rodriguez told MTV News. “I saw Rosario too. I ran into her for something else, and she’s pumped. They’ve always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun.”
Madsen confirmed his return in an interview with ComicBookMovie.com, and also teased that we could have some more information about the movie in the coming months.
“I’m doing the sequel to ‘Sin City.’ That would be ‘Sin City 2,'” he said. “I’m going to Ft. Worth, Texas, and there is supposed to be some sort of a symposium or some ‘Sin City’ panel where we’re going to talk about the film. I’m looking forward to that, too.”
That still leaves Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Devon Aoki, Jaime King and Michael Clarke Duncan to express interest in the sequel. All of their characters return in “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” so hopefully they’ll be able to fit the long-anticipated film into their busy schedules. If they can’t, though, it will be interesting to see if Rodriguez recasts the roles or just leaves those storylines out of the movie all together. Hopefully it doesn’t come to that, but we’d opt for the latter in a worst-case scenario.
When MTV News caught up with Owen earlier in the year, he expressed interest in starring in “A Dame To Kill For.”
“Listen, I had a fantastic time with [Rodriguez] on that movie,” he said. “I thought the movie was seriously groundbreaking. I’m a big fan of it as a movie. So yeah, of course I would be interested in doing it — but I really don’t know what the state of it is.”
