Jessica Alba is in final negotiations to join the ensemble cast of the Dimension Films crime drama “Sin City” for director Robert Rodriguez.

The film unites storylines from three of the seven graphic novels in the long-running cult series created, written and illustrated by Frank Miller. Set in the world’s grimiest, toughest town, the tales of vengeance and redemption are taken from “Sin City,” which launched the series, as well as “That Yellow Bastard” and “The Big Fat Kill.”

Miller is co-directing with Rodriguez, in addition to sharing producing duties with Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellan through their Troublemaker Studios label.

Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jaime King, Brittany Murphy, Elijah Wood and Carla Gugino also star. Project went into production late last month at Rodriguez’s studio facility in Austin, Texas.

Dimension co-presidents Andrew Rona and Brad Weston are overseeing the project for the studio. Andrew Gumpert and Michael Marshall, exec VP and senior VP of business and legal affairs, respectively, negotiated casting deals for Dimension.
