Joseph Gordon-Levitt: no to Marvel, yes to Sin City sequel
Actor of the moment Joseph Gordon-Levitt has reportedly taken a role in Sin City: A Dame To Kill for, and not Guardians Of The Galaxy...
That Joseph Gordon-Levitt's name has been attached to so many forthcoming movies is probably a sign of how in-demand he's become. Over the past few months, he's been rumoured to be involved in Justice League, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and most recently, Godzilla.
We've already heard that he's no longer attached to Godzilla, and now, there are reports that he's officially out of the running for Guardians Of The Galaxy, since his next acting job will clash with the scheduling of Marvel's comic book movie. Instead, the sources say, Gordon-Levitt will be playing a character named Johnny in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's sequel to their 2005 noir hit.
Gordon-Levitt's character is said to be "a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game," and will provide one of the story's major players. He'll appear alongside returning actors Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, with the unconfirmed possibility that Josh Brolin may also be joining the cast.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is currently scheduled for a US release on the 4th October, but with the shoot evidently still some time away for completion, we wouldn't be surprised to see that date moved back. More news on this as we get it.
