Deadline just reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s next movie will be Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller comic/ movie
“Gordon-Levitt will play the role of Johnny, a part that the filmmakers originally offered to Johnny Depp. He’s one of the core characters in overlapping story lines that feature returning players like Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, along with newcomers that include Dennis Haysbert. Other tough guy actors will be added, with Gangster Squad‘s Josh Brolin among the potential names I’ve heard.
As a result of this casting, it looks like he is pulling his name from the hat of actors who are currently going after the role of Star-Lord in the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy has come to an end.
