Josh Brolin has joined the cast of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's follow-up to the 2005 blockbuster. Brolin will play Dwight, a man whose life falls apart as a woman he once loved tracks him down.
Clive Owen played the role in the 2005 adaptation of Miller's graphic novels, but chronologically Brolin's take on Dwight precedes Owen's "The Big Fat Kill" storyline.
"Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and 'A Dame To Kill For' is a defining episode in his life," Rodriguez and Miller, co-directors, said in a statement. "We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight."
Brolin, who will hunt mobsters in theaters nationwide this weekend in "Gangster Squad," just finished production on Jason Reitman's "Labor Day" and Spike Lee's "Oldboy," a remake of the Park Chan-Wook classic.
He joins a star-studded cast in "Sin City," which added Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Monday. While those two are new castmembers, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson are all reprising their roles. The "Dame" must still be cast.
Dimension will release the movie October 4 in the United States and Canada.
