ComingSoon.net and SuperHeroHype are at SXSW in Austin, Texas this week and one of the movies that's premiering here following its highly-praised Sundance debut is Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut Don Jon. It's one of our favorite things we've seen so far--you can read our review here--and while there, we had a chance to talk to Gordon-Levitt about that and other things.

One of those "other things" was Robert Rodriguez's upcoming crime noir sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which Gordon-Levitt shot in Austin at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios last month. In it, he plays a new character named Jonny in a segment called "The Long Bad Night," which isn't based on any of Frank Miller's existing comics, although we were curious whether Miller actually drew the story as a guideline before they started filming it.

Gordon-Levitt said that this wasn't the case compared to the previous movie.

"It's interesting. They wanted to have a movie where fans of the books would still be able to look forward to something new and unexpected, so they added a story. I remember being really intrigued by that and I was really looking forward to, ‘Oh that will be so interesting to have the actual comics to refer to as an actor' but no I didn't."

"I had a ball doing that, I loved doing that," he went on. "I mean, Robert Rodriguez is a guy whose movies I've liked for a long time and he has creativity pouring out of him."

He also told us that though Jonny's a new character and story, he's firmly within the world of Sin City where other characters are likely to show up. "I saw Bruce and Mickey (Rourke) and I have a scene together, and Jessica (Alba). I was so stoked."

Look for the full interview with Gordon-Levitt right here when Relativity Media decides on the best date to release Don Jon. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is scheduled for October 4.
