Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Adds Jaime King and Jamie Chung

Jaime King in 2005's "Sin City"

As filming began Monday on the long-promised Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, two more actresses have joined the sequel to the 2005 adaptation of the neo-noir comics by Frank Miller.

Heat Vision reports that Jaime King, who played twin prostitutes Goldie and Wendy in the first film, will return as Wendy, while Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) will replace Devon Aoki as the katana-wielding, roller-skating assassin Miho.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For reunites co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Miller for a film based in part on the second volume of Miller’s acclaimed Dark Horse crime comic, as well as the short story “Just Another Saturday Night” and one new segment “The Long, Bad Night.”

Original cast members Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson are confirmed to be returning for the sequel, which includes segments set before and after the events of the first film (which explains the involvement of Rourke). Although Clive Owen’s participation hasn’t been confirmed, Heat Vision contends he is “understood to be returning” as Dwight, the photographer who undergoes reconstructive surgery after suffering near-fatal gunshot wound. The production still needs to cast the roles of the manipulative Eva and the smooth gambler Johnny (a new character), as well as find an actor to play a post-surgery Dwight.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens Oct. 4, 2013.

    Um, Clive Owen plays post-surgery Dwight. The Big Fat Kill takes place after A Dame to Kill For. If they do go the two actors route, and don’t just CGI Owen, they need to cast someone to play PRE-surgery Dwight.

    Funny that Jaime Chung is again playing a character that doesn’t talk much and disappears for portions for the movie.

    This isn’t completely accurate. Frank Miller stated in a previous interview that he would be using A Dame to Kill For, a previously shelved Nancy story (The Long, Bad Night) and one of the Blues Eyes stories that features the new character of Delia (assassin) and The Colonel/The Salesman from the first. Someone will be cast as Dwight before the facial surgery, while Clive will reprise his role as post-op Dwight. Manute will also be included and since Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away (he will be missed), that role is also being recast. Jamie Chung replaced Devon Aoki, who is very pregnant. Rodriguez won’t be making any formal announcements on who else has been cast until the film’s been shot, but filming has already begun on the main story with Alba, Jaime King, Jamie Chung and Rosario Dawson in Austin.
