First Look At Josh Brolin As Dwight In 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

Amid the starry cast, the sexy women and even sexier violence, it's easy to forget that "Sin City," and it's forthcoming sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," are some impressive feats of technology as well. Robert Rodriguez has devised a rather fascinating approach that both keeps the budget down, but also allows him plenty of creative flexibility and the ability to eliminate any kind of scheduling problems. Shooting mostly on green screen, the "Sin City" films use lots of CGI to give a stylish look at the fraction of the cost of trying to replicate it realistically, and thanks to digital and editing wizardry, cast members don't even have to be standing opposite each other in order to interact. And as he gets 'Dame' ready for release later this year, Rodriguez has given a little sneak preview.

Josh Brolin Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Amid the starry cast, the sexy women and even sexier violence, it's easy to forget that "Sin City," and it's forthcoming sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," are some impressive feats of technology as well. Robert Rodriguez has devised a rather fascinating approach that both keeps the budget down, but also allows him plenty of creative flexibility and the ability to eliminate any kind of scheduling problems. Shooting mostly on green screen, the "Sin City" films use lots of CGI to give a stylish look at the fraction of the cost of trying to replicate it realistically, and thanks to digital and editing wizardry, cast members don't even have to be standing opposite each other in order to interact. And as he gets 'Dame' ready for release later this year, Rodriguez has given a little sneak preview.

The director hit Twitter last night to reveal his process, and showed a first look at Josh Brolin as the new Dwight (previously played by Clive Owen) in the project. As for the image above he notes it's "a quick photo touch up I do to set a tone for the actors" and he adds that it likely won't be raining in the final shot. Meanwhile, the picture below really gives a sense of just how many pixels will be utilized to finish up the movie. Like we said, it's pretty neat stuff, and as he proved with "Sin City," Rodriguez is able to make it all blend pretty seamlessly.

"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" arrives on October 4th.
