Following on the heels of last year’s additions of Dennis Haysbert, Jaime King and Jamie Chung to the already star-studded Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For cast, comes news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be appearing in the long-awaited sequel as well.
Dimension Films confirmed Gordon-Levitt will play a new character named Johnny, described as a “cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game,” ComingSoon reports.
“I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality,” Gordon-Levitt said. “Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr. Rodriguez.”
The film, currently in production in Austin, Texas, is expected to be released Oct. 4, 2013.
