I’m sure it was a tough decision but Joseph Gordon-Levitt made the difficult choice to not star opposite a cartoon raccoon in favor of working with Frank Miller. Last week there was news that he was in the running for the lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy but has reportedly turned that down and decided to join Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
He’ll play Johnny, a new, smooth-talking gambler character created by both Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for the film adaptation. Originally written for Johnny Depp, there’s no word whether or not the character will be renamed Joseph. It’s safe to say, however, that the character now won’t be expected to wear anything silly on his head. (THR)
