Robert Rodriguez's CGI-heavy and visually stylistic "Sin City" movies require heavy technical demands, but also allow him a flexibility in filmmaking. Essentially, since everything is on green screens, and thanks to advances in technology, shooting can take place whenever cast members are available, and then everything can be stitched together afterward. Actors in the same scene don't necessarily don't have to be on the same set on the same day, so it's no surprise that as cameras keep rolling on "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," new cast members are being added.
The latest are Eva Green and the rising Julia Garner, who will play the femme fatale Ava Lord and a stripper tied to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's gambler Johnny, respectively. Ava Lord is the ex-lover of Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who has Manute (Dennis Haysbert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan) wrapped around her finger as her manservant. As for Garner's role, not much else is known, but she's an actress who we called "If...not the next big thing, she's probably the next, next big thing" after seeing perfromance in "Electrick Children" at the Berlin International Film Festival last year (review here). And with roles since in "Perks Of Being A Wallflower," "Not Fade Away," "The Last Excorcism Part II" and now this, it seems to be the case.
"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" arrives on October 4th.
