Dimension Films announced today that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have chosen Eva Green (Dark Shadows, 300: Rise of an Empire, Casino Royale) to star as the film's deadly muse, Ava Lord.

Ava, the iconic character from Miller's graphic novel of the same name, is described by Miller as "every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she's also every man's darkest nightmares."

Rodriguez and Miller said, "We've been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."

Eva Green joining the film rounds out the huge, all-star cast that Rodriguez and Miller have been assembling over the past few months. That cast includes original cast members Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as “Gail” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Academy Award® nominee Josh Brolin as “Dwight,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute,” Christopher Meloni as “Mort,” Jeremy Piven as “Bob,” Jamie Chung as "Miho," Ray Liotta as “Joey,” Juno Temple as “Sally,” and Julia Garner as “Marcy.”

Production is underway at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of 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.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller.

The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013 and is produced by Robert Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.
