As quickly as the news broke Monday that “Dark Knight Rises” star Joseph Gordon-Levitt was joining the “Sin City” sequel, news hit that Josh Brolin and Christopher Meloni were also cast by directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Tuesday Dimension Films announced Josh Brolin will star as “Dwight” in the follow up to the 2005 film. This is the role played by Clive Owen in the first film. Christopher Meloni has also been cast as a cop, possibly a key character in “A Dame to Kill For.”

Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell.

Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the first film) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

“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,” said Rodriguez and Miller.

Meloni is in this summer’s “Man of Steel” and Brolin stars in “Gangster Squad” which opens this month.

Dimension Films is already in production on the film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung
