Just yesterday we learned that Joesph Gordon-Levitt had joined the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Today the Hollywood Reporter has learned that Josh Brolin will replace Clive Owen as Dwight. Brolin joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt as faces to the Sin City roll call, which sees Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King and Rosario Dawson among those returning.
Clive Owen is not the only actor being replaced. Jamie Chung is replacing Devon Aoki and Dennis Haysbert has replaced the late Michael Clarke Duncan for the sequel.
The storyline involving Dwight was one the more fondly remembered threads of Miller’s Sin City comic mini-series, published in the 1990s by Dark Horse. It centered on a photographer who falls back into the life of a beautiful woman named Ava who had left him years earlier for a wealthy man, only to see himself set up for the murder of her husband.
The part of Ava is the last major role yet to be cast.
