Lara Croft journeys to Sin City


Angelina Jolie in talks for sequel

Remember a few months back when we relayed a rumour that suggested Angelina Jolie might be up for the role of ‘The Dame to Kill For’ in the “Sin City” sequel? Yeah? Well, according to a report on SciFiWire, it’s a deal that’s close to closing.

“The film’s been kind of postponed because Robert [Rodriguez, the director] has been interested in Angelina Jolie for the lead,” Dawson tells the site. “But she’s very pregnant right now. So that’s putting an understandable hold on the film.”

Dawson returns in “Sin City 2”, which is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel stories “A Dame to Kill for” and “Lost, Lonely and Lethal.” “I don’t think Gail changes all that much from the first film to this one,” Dawson said. “Gail is always Gail. The only preparation I’ve had to do was just to stay healthy. I think the main question in regards to Gail is whether or not I’ll cut my hair this time. It’s starting to get a bit long now.”

The role of Gail in “Sin City” may just be her most popular role though, she explains.

“People are always coming up to me and asking me to sign the Gail action figure,” she said with a laugh. “And it’s kind of weird to be signing a doll that has an Uzi and handcuffs.”

So back to Jolie. Yeah, totally. Hang out for Rodriguez. She is TRULY the only one that could play the character. Passing on her, would be likely passing on Mickey Rourke for Marv. Crime indeed.
