Robert Rodriguez has been a busy man of late, recruiting long and hard for forthcoming sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For , and the latest name he’s convinced to return is none other than Bruce Willis.
Rodriguez confirmed that Willis will be reprising his role as grizzled cop Hartigan in an interview with MTV (opens in new tab) , in which he also provided an update on how the production has been progressing.
“The only story we’ve shot is the intro story, that’s completely done,” said Rodriguez. “The other ones we’ve just sort of been piecemealing, shooting as the actors become available. All three stories have a little bit of footage to be shot.
“[ Joseph Gordon-Levitt ] plays a gambler,” he continues. “A very cocky gambler that comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game.
“The story is called The Long Bad Night ,” he continues. “He beats the wrong guy at a game… bad stuff happens to him.”
Co-starring Mickey Rourke, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For opens in the US on 4 October 2013.
