French model-cum-actor Eva Green will be playing Ava Lord, the titular dame to kill for in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. She’s probably best known for playing Vesper in Casino Royale or for her role in Dark Shadows. (I can’t believe the opening sentence of this post includes both cum-actor and titular. GRRR, BLOGGING.)
[Ava] is described by [Frank] Miller as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.” Rodriguez and Miller said, “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. 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.” [Coming Soon]
I am shocked — shocked — that Frank Miller would describe a female character in extremely dichotomous terms invoking a Madonna–whore complex.
Meanwhile, up-and-comer Julia Garner will be playing Marcy, a stripper (of course) who is connected to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Johnny character. Garner reportedly stole the show as a Mormon teenager in Electrick Children.
It would be awesome if her character in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is actually the grown-up version of the religious teen she played in Electrick Children.
