...and just like that, "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is now shooting. Production started today on the long awaited followup to the hit 2005 film, and indeed, word has been brewing all year. In the spring, the movie was formally announced, with casting more or less coming together in the following months, but now a clearer picture of what to expect is emerging.

THR reveals that, as expected, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson are among those returning. Jaime King is also back playing Goldie's twin sister Wendy, while a switcheroo has occured for the role of the assassin Miho, with Jamie Chung ("The Hangover Part II," "Sucker Punch," "The Man With Iron Fists") stepping in for Devon Aoki. And there is more to come.

While Clive Owen has stated earlier this year that he has yet to be contacted, the trade says he is expected to return. However, since his character undergoes a radical face change, another actor is said to be joining him to play Dwight. Meanwhile, the character of Ava -- written in the hopes that Angelina Jolie would take it -- needs to be cast as well, while the newly created gambler Johnny also needs to find an actor.

Exact story details are yet to be revealed, but last year Frank Miller said that the story "Just Another Saturday Night" would be part of the film's narrative and that he had written a new storyline for Alba's Nancy that would tie the two movies together.

Rodriguez just wrapped on "Machete Kills" which is already being prepped for a 2013 release...could the quickly moving helmer make it two for next year? We wouldn't be surprised.
