Inception actor Joseph Gordon Levitt is in high demand. Following his role in The Dark Knight Rises, Gordon is now being asked to take on another comic book role in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Deadline reports that Levitt will star as Johnny, a role Johnny Depp was previous offered.
MTV reports that Johnny is described as a “cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.”
According to Deadline, Levitt’s name will be added to the already star studded list, which features the likes of Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and Rosario Dawson.
An estatic Levitt took to Twitter to confirm the news writing, “This one's no mere rumor, and it's gonna be fun as f**k. @Rodriguez. @FrankMillerInk. #SinCity #ADameToKillFor.”
In addition to taking on the role in Sin City 2, Levitt is slated to appear at the Sundance Film Festival where he will make his directorial debut in Don Jons Addiction. He also stars in the film, alongside Scarlett Johansson.
