Another familiar face will return for "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," as Robert Rodriguez has confirmed that Bruce Willis is on board for the sequel.
In a recent interview at Sundance, the director discussed the upcoming sequel, which has been rapidly adding cast members during the past few weeks. In fact, Rodriguez revealed that some of the newest additions have already shot their parts.
Specifically, the director mentioned that Juno Temple "just shot" and "was fantastic." He goes on to reveal that she and Ray Liotta "played together, and they were amazing." Furthermore, Jeremy Piven also just shot some footage during an all-night shoot.
He went on to say that "there are characters from the book," but "it might surprise people who they play and the turns they do." It was at this point that Rodriguez casually mentioned that Willis would return. Willis will presumably reprise the role of hard-boiled detective Hartigan, whom he played in the first film.
One role that hasn't been filled is Ava Lord, who will be hunting down Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin) and making his life a living hell. The director revealed that he does have some choices in mind for the role, but it hasn't been "finalized" since her scenes aren't due to shoot for a couple of weeks.
Rodriguez also discussed the decision to shoot the film in 3D, which is something he didn't do on the first film. While he believes the "very stylized" nature of the film will "blow people's minds," he's hesitant about post-converting the original film, as he cited the difference between shooting a film in native 3D and simply converting it.
2013 is a big year for Rodriguez; when "A Dame to Kill For" debuts in theaters on October 4th, it'll do so mere weeks after "Machete Kills" arrives in theaters.
