Josh Brolin is a great actor, great enough for his role in Jonah Hex to be forgiven and be blamed on bad script and directing 😉 Speaking of the man, here he is below on-set of the Sin City sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Director Robert Rodriguez stated via tweeter that the above look is just a test footage for the rest of actors to get the visual look, feel and tone of the sequel.

Another signature aspect of Sin City are the different storylines and character who somehow unknowingly cross each others’ paths. Here is a brief run though of the story lines to be expected in A Dame to Kill For, courtesy of Filmonic:
