We finally have the first images of the on-set happenings surrounding the very anticipated sequel to 2005’s on-screen adaptation of Frank Miller’s highly regarded graphic novel Sin City.
In the images, we see Josh Brolin sitting in a green-screen car, and then afterwards–the images were released on Robert Rodriguez’s twitter–we see the preliminary “finished” image with rain and car enveloping Brolin’s hardened stare.
Brolin is new to the series and is playing a younger version of Dwight McCarthy, who was played in the first film by Clive Owen. While Owen isn’t returning to the sequel/prequel, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Mickey Rourke are all back to reprise their roles from the original film.
They’ll join fresh faces to the series: Brolin, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Says current Hollywood superstar Gordon-Levitt of his first time working with Rodriguez (MTV):
Sin City 2′ is going to be fun. [I’m playing] a quintessential Rodriguez badass. It’s going to be fun as hell.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is slated for October of this year.
