Multitalented star boards noir sequel.

Deadline is reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to join the cast of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.’

The ‘Looper’ star will be taking the role of Johnny, a part originally offered to Johnny Depp, and one of the core characters in the film’s overlapping story lines. He joins returning stars like Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, along with newcomers like Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert.

Gordon-Levitt has a busy month ahead. Along with shooting ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ at Rodriguez’ Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas, the actor will screen his directorial debut, ‘Don Jon’s Addiction,’ at the Sundance Film Festival.
