Sin City 2 artwork revealed?

Is this the first artwork to be seen for ‘Sin City 2’? Maybe.

Playboy model Crystal McCahill has posted this interesting image on her Instagram account, showing the first-time actress in the classic ‘Sin City’ poster style we’ve come to recognise. Rain and all.

McCahill’s role hasn't been revealed yet but it seems likely, going by the clothes here, that she may be playing one of the "Girls of The Old Town", if you catch our drift.

There are rumours though that McCahill could be playing Ava Lord, the “dame to kill for” of the title. It would be a big risk to cast an as yet unpracticed actress, but with the recent news that Angelina Jolie turned down the role, there’s a vacancy sign flashing above the character.

Is this all wishful thinking or just coincidence? Nobody knows - but it wouldn’t be the first time the glamour girl has let slip about the movie via social media. Last month she posted an image of herself being prepped and pampered on Facebook with the caption “Getting hair and makeup done for my part with Micky Rourke in Sin City 2. :)”

‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ sees Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jaime King, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson all reprise their roles from the 2005 film, adapted from the Frank Miller graphic novel series of the same name. Dennis Haysburt will replace Michael Clarke Duncan as Manute after the 54 year-old’s unexpected death last September.

Directed like the first by Robert Rodriguez, the film began shooting back in October and follows Dwight McCarthy (Owen) as he plots his revenge against a woman who betrayed him: the dame to kill for.

Is McCahill that girl? We’ll have to wait and see.

‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ is set for release October 2013.
