Recently, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been rumored to be circling a couple of genre projects and he has now made his decision as to which one he will sign with. Sorry Godzilla and Guardians Of The Galaxy, but Levitt has chosen to go with Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Gordon-Levitt will be taking on the role of a gambler named Johnny, which originally had been offered to Johnny Depp. Although the film is based on a couple of Frank Miller’s Sin City comics storylines, the character appears to be a new one created for the one new storyline Miller and Rodriguez devised for the film.
Returning from the first Sin City are Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis and Rosario Dawson.
Deadline broke the news, stating that Marvel is now pursuing many of their other choices for the lead for Guardians Of The Galaxy now that Gordon-Levitt has passed on the role.
