Robert Rodriguez has proven he can shoot a film more quietly with big-name stars than just about anyone (it's all that green screen time). But, yes, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, continues to shoot in Austin intermittently this month and "goes full force" in January. Last we heard much publically from a Rodriguez set he had closed downtown streets for a late-night Machete 2 shoot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dennis Haysbert has taken the role of Manute, portrayed by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the original 2005 Sin City based on Frank Miller's comic books. Returning for the sequel are Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King and Rosario Dawson.
