A first look at the Sin City sequel featuring Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been exclusively revealed by Entertainment Weekly.
The 3-D neo-noir prequel to the 2005 original is being co-directed by Robert Rodriguez (Machete Kills) and Frank Miller. The pictures cut close to the treatment of the original film. Alba is seen in character, as Nancy Callahan, wearing sheer black spandex tights and a bra striking a sensual pose at Kadies bar. Rourke looks nails devastatingly intense made-of-steel look as he coolly holds onto a long assault rifle.
While Alba and Rourke are reprising their roles, Levitt is a new addition to the cast. The Don Jon star will be playing Johnny, a gambler who gets into trouble for beating a dangerous man at poker.
"He beat the wrong guy at poker," says Rodriguez about Levitt's character arc. "It begins the journey that describes the title of his story: 'The Long Bad Night.'"
Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, and Powers Booth will also be reprising their roles from the first film.
The new additions to the cast in the prequel include Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Jaime Chung, Josh Brolin, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Christopher Meloni, Juia Garner, and Jeremy Piven.
In a recent interview on SiriusXM's Ron and Fez Show, Rodriguez also suggested that Miller was already rolling out a third chapter in the series.
"Yeah -- the second Sin City -- I was just here with Frank Miller last night and we were watching it last night. [We] finished the cut, effects are being done, it will come out in August," he said. "He [Miller] watched Part 2-he watched it last night with me and then at the end he said, he didn't have any comments, he was very happy with it. And he said, now about part three.... Started telling me how he's going to do part three. So he's already there on part three."
