As the production for Sin City: A Dame to Kill for ramps up, so does the news as Bruce Willis is officially confirmed to return to his role as Hartigan in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City sequel. Check it out!
Willis joins the pretty extensive list of returnees which currently includes Jaime King as Wendy (Goldie’s sister), Jessica Alba as Nancy Callahan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Mickey Rourke as Marv and also the replacements of Dennis Haysbert as Manute (replacing the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan), Josh Brolin replacing Clive Owen as Dwight and Jamie Chung replacing Devon Aoki as the deadly Miho.
Joining these returning stars will be Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Johnny, a part in which was orginally linked to Johnny Depp during the years of speculation and rumour since the first movie.
As you will recall, Willis portrays Hartigan, the seemingly last good cop in a hell of a city, condemned to years imprisonment protecting a child from a paedophile who just so happens to be a senator’s son. At the end of the movie, Hartigan dies so you maybe forgiven in wondering just what role Willis is set to play.
Fans will already know that Sin City is a non-linear movie and contains many overlapping stories and Willis will appear in the Marv-centric story “Just Another Saturday Night”. This story tells what Marv was doing when Hartigan first meets up with Nancy in the bar for the first time since getting out of prison.
Whether Willis will star in any other parts or even new scenes comic book creator Frank Miller has written specifically for the movie is yet to be seen.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits cinema’s October 4th.
