Deadline is reporting that Law & Order: SVU veteran Chris Meloni has officially joined the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. No specifics are given except that his role is a one of the leads of the film and that he's playing a police officer.
It was confirmed last night that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has also boarded the comic book adaptation in the role of a new character named Johnny.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town's most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.
The ensemble includes already announced original cast members Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Rosario Dawson as “Gail,” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Dennis Haysbert as “Manute,” and Jamie Chung as “Miho.” Production is underway at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller and Academy Award® winner William Monahan (The Departed).
The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013.
