Sin City: A Dame To Kill For adds three impressive new cast members

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has added to its already impressive roster of actors, with The Playlist (opens in new tab) reporting that Juno Temple, Ray Liotta and Jeremy Piven have come aboard.

Their characters haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s easy to imagine those guys slipping into the noirish world created by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez.

Temple has previous comic-book form in The Dark Knight Rises , and possesses an uncanny ability to suggest a darkness rumbling beneath her doe-eyed exterior.

Liotta has a perfect face for the Sin City universe, sporting archetypal movie gangster looks, and grizzled charisma to match.

Piven’s perhaps the least-likely addition, although he has worked with Rodriguez before - on Spy Kids 4 - and his brash motormouth style will no doubt chew through Miller’s hard-boiled dialogue.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will feature plot strands that take place before, after and during the events of the original film, meaning it evades easy sequel/prequel classification.

With Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin joining SC alumni Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, and with Miller and Rodriguez once again sharing directing duties, A Dame To Kill For is shaping up to be one of this year’s most tantalising movie prospects.

It opens in the US on 4 October 2013.
