Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have chosen Dennis Haysbert to play Manute in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The role was previously played by Michael Clarke Duncan, who unfortunately passed away in September.
Rodriguez and Miller:
“Manute is a character that has been part of the heart of the Sin City tales, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan beautifully established that role onscreen. We could not tell the story of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For without Manute and are thrilled to welcome Dennis Haysbert to the cast.”
Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King and Rosario Dawson are all returning to their respective roles. Jamie Chung (The Hangover: Part II) is replacing Devin Aoki in the part of Miho.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set to hit theatres October 4, 2013.
