Eva Green Cast as Femme Fatale Lead in ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’
Former Bond girl Eva Green has won the lead Femme Fatale role in the much awaited ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,’ which is to be directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.
Green’s casting marks the end of a long search for an actress to take on the role of Ava Lord, who is at the center of the pulpy story first published as a comic book in the 1990s.
The story centred on a photographer who fell back into the life of a beautiful women (Eva Green) who left him years earlier for a wealthier man, only to see himself set up for the murder of her husband.
Josh Brolin is playing Dwight, the photographer.
Returning for the sequel are Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King. New additions include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Julia Garner.
“Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City,” Rodriguez and Miller said in a statement. “From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green.”
