Dark Shadows’ star Eva Green has joined the burgeoning cast of  Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Green will play Ava Lord, the deadly muse from Frank Miller’s graphic novel of the same name in the Dimension Film’s movie. Ava is “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares,” said Miller in a statement today. Miller and Robert Rodriguez are co-directing the sequel to 2005’s Sin City together. The film is being shot now in Austin at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios. Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist are producing. The new Sin City is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2013 with Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Michael Madsen, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, and Clive Owen returning. Josh Brolin, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Haysbert, and Juno Temple are making their Sin City debut in A Dame To Kill For.
