First Look at Josh Brolin as Dwight in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

They say you’re not supposed to drive angry, but from the looks of it that kernel of wisdom hasn’t made its way to Sin City.

Co-director Robert Rodriguez recently took to Twitter to show off a pair of images from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the first (below) a behind-the-scenes look at Josh Brolin shooting a driving scene with, “Here’s bad ass Josh Brolin driving a Rodriguez-mobile. (A green box with a steering wheel bolted on).” The second (above) is “a quick photo touch up I do to set a tone for the actors.”

Brolin plays Dwight, who Clive Owen starred as in the 2005 Sin City. As we mentioned last month when Brolin’s involvement was announced, this switch makes sense because Dwight’s face gets awfully messed up at the end of Frank Miller’s A Dame to Kill For, which takes place before The Big Fat Kill, as seen in Sin City.

The script, written by Miller, mixes adaptations of existing Dark Horse comic stories like A Dame to Kill For and “Just Another Saturday Night” with new stories Miller developed for this film. Brolin is joined by Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert in the film, which is being shot at Rodriguez’s own Austin-based Troublemaker Studios. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set to open on Oct. 4.

    I don’t know …., no offense to Josh Brolin, but they really should have brought back Clive Owen.

    He “owned” the role of Dwight.

    Wasn’t Dwight supposed to be more svelt?

    Josh Brolin is playing Dwight before his facial reconstruction surgery, and Clive is still playing post-op Dwight.

    Wow, Josh Brolin as pre-facial surgery Dwight looks good. I wonder about his voice though…

    The fact is, it doesn’t make sense to bring back Owen since it was already established  in “Sin City” that his face looks different  Brolin is a good enough choice and it’s all going to come down to the writing and directing anyway.  People bought into Miller’s neo-pulp stylization once, twice might be difficult unless they make it new somehow.
