First, the good news. Production officially began today on “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” from Robert Rodriguez. Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Mickey Rourke are already confirmed. Jaime King, who played Goldie, is back too. And Jamie Chung is taking over the role of Miho.

Now, for the possibly bad, but really just confusing news. Clive Owen isn’t confirmed, and his character is the main character for the story this film is based on. And the female lead, originally written for Angelina Jolie, hasn’t been cast either. Hmmm.
