According to a rather high-profile producer friend, Angelina Jolie is now in â€œserious talksâ€ â€“ as opposed to merely being mentioned as a possibility, or having a casual coffee with the filmmakers to suss out her interest â€“ to star in director Robert Rodroguez’s â€œSin City 2â€.
Jolie first spoke to Rodriguez and writer/co-director Frank Miller about the film in 2006. All went quiet on the project though, largely because the producers weren’t ready to pull the trigger on the production, and all converse ceased. Now, according to my mole, the project has gathered steam and the filmmakers are trying to get Jolie to officially commit to playing the female lead.
Jolie would play the iniquitous Ava, the lead character in Miller’s “A Dame to Kill For” story. Sheâ€™s the former flame of clean-living photographer Dwight McCarthy, and shows up and professes her love for him. When he finds out she’s in way over her head, it looks as though trouble has found him. And heâ€™d be right.
The project would reunite Jolie with her â€œBeyond Bordersâ€ co-star Clive Owen, whoâ€™s loosely attached to reprise his role as McCarthy.
Weâ€™re told that the long-gestating sequel is inching forward a little faster than it was, say, six months ago. Wonder if it’s the Weinsteinâ€™s who are suddenly raring to go? Word is, they havenâ€™t lost the rights to the film, but could if the project doesn’t transition from a simmer to a boil pretty soon.
