Brolin has now been confirmed to play Dwight, the character portrayed by Clive Owen in the original film.

A Dame to Kill For is a prequel to the first film, so Brolin will be playing a younger version of Owen. However, in the original it is explained that Owen's character has had facial reconstruction surgery, explaining the difference in the actors' appearances.

Rodriguez and Miller said of the casting: "Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and A Dame to Kill For is a defining episode in his life. We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight."

Other members of the cast include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christopher Meloni and returning stars Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson.

Brolin will next be seen in Gangster Squad opposite Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The film is released in UK and US cinemas this week.
