Miller described the character as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares” in a release announcing the casting on Tuesday.
Green rounds out a cast which includes Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King, who also starred in the original “Sin City.” New cast members include Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert and Christopher Meloni.
Production on the sequal, based on Miller’s graphic novel, is already underway. Miller also penned the script.
“We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City,” Rodriguez and Miller stated jointly. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”
