“It’s in! It’s happening! Can’t tell you nothing,” she told E! Online when asked about her participation.
It’s not much of a surprise, but it is nice to know for sure that Dawson is back for another go. Jessica Alba is also planning a return and has been prepping to play Nancy again by dying her hair blonde and heading to the shooting range. Mickey Rourke and Michael Madsen are also expected to be back for a second go at the “Sin City” universe, and we still don’t know if Clive Owen will take part in a sequel.
This isn’t the first time Dawson has opened up about her character. Asked by Coming Soon back in 2009 about what she’d like Gail to be up to in “Sin City 2,” she said she expects her character to remain the same.
“I think Gail is pretty much Gail. What you see is what you get,” Dawson said. “I don’t think she’s going to be poppin’ out any babies and singing any songs or anything like that. What’s actually really fun about it is that we get to investigate it a little bit more into the storyline that was actually in ‘Sin City 2′ — that middle chapter which is where Gail mostly was. Investigate a little more as to who is this man and what are they talking about when he’s got a different face.”
We’ll be interested to find out what new cast members will join “Sin City 2.” There are a fair share of new characters introduced, but as of April Rodriguez hadn’t started looking for new actors yet.
“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,” he 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.”
