Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star in ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,’ Turns Down ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’
Rising star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one wanted man as Hollywood filmmakers attempt to draw him to their project. A few days ago, we heard word that he was circling a lead role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy but it appears he has turned down the part to star in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Gordon-Levitt will take on the role of Johnny, a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game. Interestingly enough, Johnny Depp was previously offered the role which is one of the main character in the film’s multiple narrative threads. JGL joins Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jamie King, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert.
Word is that both Clive Owen and Bruce Willis are expected back to reprise their role from the first film while Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad) is circling another key role. Production is already underway with a release date set for October 4th.
To be perfectly honest, this looks like a much more fun and interesting role than anything Marvel has to offer. In the meantime, Gordon-Levitt is gearing up to premiere his directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.
