The multi-hyphenate actor will direct and produce the film from a script by David S. Goyer, based on Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed comic book series
Basin City, the metropolis imagined by Frank Miller in his graphic novels and brought to the screen in 2005’sSin City and its new sequel A Dame to Kill For (in theaters Friday), is a treacherous urban landscape populated by cold-blooded killers and gun-wielding strippers. It is a terrifying, terrifying place — even more so than Hollywood. Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Eva Green all play characters who call Sin City home inA Dame to Kill For, but we wondered how they think they’d personally fare in its cutthroat culture. You can see their answers in the video above.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has witnessed first-hand the Hollywood rise of writer-director Rian Johnson. So when we talked to JGL recently about his new role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (which, it’s worth noting, marks his return to noir), we had to ask him about the recent announcement that Johnson had scored what many would think the best gig in the galaxy: writer-director of Star Wars – Episode VIII. I couldn’t speak to you about superlatively happy I am that Rian Johnson is gonna make Star Wars.” Really, though, you just need to watch the video to see how truly happy-excited Gordon-Levitt is about the whole thing.
