Last week, we got the big announcement that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller will start filming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas this summer. Now, Rodriguez talked to MTV about the casting.
“We still have to cast. I’m shooting ‘Machete’ next month, and we go right into ‘Sin City.’ It might overlap, but we haven’t done any casting yet, except for the people who we know are already in it and returning,” he said, adding, “‘A Dame to Kill For,’ all those people come back. I just had lunch with Mickey [Rourke] this weekend. He’s all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one. I saw Rosario [Dawson] 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.”
But what about Angelina Jolie, who has been rumored for the title role for quite some time?
“I haven’t even gotten to meet with her yet about it or discuss with Frank about who we would want to go with or talk to first. That’s a fun process, but that probably won’t happen in the next month,” Rodriguez said.
