The Playlist bring word that Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven have joined the cast of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.’ The star studded ensemble also includes already announced original cast members Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Rosario Dawson as “Gail,” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy.” New cast members include Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Josh Brolin as “Dwight,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute,” Jamie Chung as “Miho,” Christopher Meloni as a yet-to-be named policer officer, and Josh Brolin starring as “Dwight.” Production is underway on the film at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas. Details on Liotta, Temple and Piven’s characters are currently being kept under wraps.
In ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,’ Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. The story weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller. The film will be released by Dimension Films on October 4th, and produced by Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.
Fox Searchlight has set loose this new batch of images from Park Chan-wook’s (Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Thirst) ‘Stoker.’ Set for a March 1st release date, ‘Stoker’ stars the likes of Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Nicole Kidman, Jackie Weaver, Lucas Till, and Alden Ehrenreich. From a script by Wentworth Miller, the film marks the acclaimed South Korean filmmakers English-language debut. I’ve got high hopes for this….incredibly high! Source: Fox and Hitfix.
The synopsis for ‘Stoker’ is as follows: “After India’s (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.”
Universal Pictures has unveiled this new image from writer/director Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) ‘Oblivion.’ Starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman, Mellissa Leo and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, ‘Oblivion’ is based on Kosinski’s own Radical Publishing comic book series. The film takes place in an apocalyptic future where most of the population live in clouds above an earth surface that has been rendered uninhabitable. ‘Oblivion’ is pencilled in for a April 12th release date.
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated lead role return to the big screen in Jee-woon Kim’s ‘The Last Stand.’ After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. Alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eduardo Noriega, the likes of Jaimie Alexander, Zach Gilford, Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, Rodrigo Santoro, Johnny Knoxville, Alexander, Peter Stormare, Harry Dean Stanton and Genesis Rodriguez co-star. Look out for ‘The Last Stand’ from January 18th in the US and January 25th in the UK. My interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the film can be read here, while my Jaimie Alexander interview can be read here.
For me it’s such an interesting combination, a film directed by Jee-woon Kim and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Then actually working with Arnold, I can imagine that was incredibly exciting as someone who grew up watching his films?
Rodrigo Santoro: Yeah. I think the 12 year-old that lives inside me screamed, “What! You’re doing a movie with Arnold?!” Really?! It’s Conan man, it’s friggin’ Terminator! That’s awesome man, we’re really doing it.” (Laughs) And I agreed, I was like, “Yep, we’re doing it.” And yeah, knowing that I’d be working with Jee-woon Kim, who’s a fantastic director, he’s incredibly talented, that was a big thing. Arnold, he’s an institution. And he said it, “I’ll be back.” He is back, definitely. And I loved that combination of Jee-woon Kim and Arnold, it’s an unexpected combination. For me it was a no brainer to do this movie.
