A quick hit on the rumor mill for the sequel to fanboy gold flick Sin City. According to what seem to be entirely unsubstantiated rumors floating around, Robert Rodriguez has been in contact with a lady he hopes could be A Dame To Kill For. The rumored hopeful target? None other than the geek film regular Tomb Raider herself, Angelina Jolie.
Okay...I know Angelina Jolie is reasonably popular in some circles of the geek world. And you know that I don't agree with those circles, and tend to be a bit derisive towards her geek star status. However, I'm going to surprise some of you regular readers by suggesting that this might not be a terrible casting. Yeah, I never thought I'd see the day when I'd support her either. Now don't get me wrong - I still think there are serveral people out there I'd rather see in the role - but somehow in my mind Jolie actually makes a pretty good fit for the dark film noir style of the Sin City world. Thoughts?
