Yeah, we know. It was only this afternoon that we were talking about how hot Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at the moment, with franchises being thrown left and right at the actor. He's already passed on "Godzilla," and now he's turned down Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for the chance to step into Robert Rodriguez's noir soaked world.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Yeah, we know. It was only this afternoon that we were talking about how hot Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at the moment, with franchises being thrown left and right at the actor. He's already passed on "Godzilla," and now he's turned down Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for the chance to step into Robert Rodriguez's noir soaked world.

That's right, JGL is joining "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," taking a lead role that was offered to Johnny Depp at one point. The actor will be play the character Johnny, a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game. Production is already underway, with Dennis Haysbert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan, Jamie Chung replacing Devon Aoki, with Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawsonand Jaime King among those returning. Clive Owen is still expected in some capacity, and Deadline points to Bruce Willis reprising a role as well, but nothing official has come down just yet. Meanwhile, the site also says Josh Brolin could be courted for a role too.

Also coming on board?  Playboy model Crystal McCahill. The shapely actress recently tweeted out (via Bleeding Cool) a poster of sorts with her character, but we've found out she doesn't have much of a part; just one of the girls in the background. She might have a shot here or there, but essentially, she's a glorified extra. At any rate we'll find out soon enough about the rest of the casting that's brewing, as cameras are rolling with the film slated to hit on October 4th. And oh yeah, it's been confirmed it's going to be in 3D too.
