Former Bond girl Eva Green has joined the star-studded cast of Robert Rodriguez's Sin City sequel A Dame To Kill For.
The Casino Royale femme fatale will portray the new film's deadly muse, Ava Lord - who screenwriter and co-director Frank Miller describes as "every man's most glorious dreams come true," adding, "she's also every man's darkest nightmares".
"Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City," Rodriguez says.
"From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."
The French actress joins a cast that includes returning stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King, and fellow newcomers Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and Christopher Meloni.
Production is underway at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
