It was announced earlier today that French actress and former Bond girl Eva Green has be cast in one of the title roles of the long gestatingÂ sequelÂ to “Sin City”. She will be playing the role of seductive crime boss Ava Lord, a character described by Sin City creator Frank Miller as;
“Every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares”
No update on the films release, but they seem to finally have a decent cast shaped together, making us all the more hopeful that filming will commence soon. Because I dont know about you, but Ive been waiting for this sequel to come out for, oh, about EIGHT YEARS!
My fury aside for having to wait so long for this movie, I think Eva Green is excellent casting. For a character like Ava Lord you need someone who is both Gorgeous, check, andÂ believablyÂ cunning and intelligent, double check. While this movie was in production hell many names had been attached to the role, most notably Angelina Jolie. Who would have fit the bill as well, but I happened to think Eva Green is the superior actress, and, much as Cordell will kill me for saying, far more beautiful. and just as a quick recap, she will be joining Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Christopher Meloni, and finally Dennis Haysbert picking up the role left behind by Michael Clarke Duncan. So Eva will be in goodÂ companyÂ when she plays Ava.
Until next time
