Los Angeles: "Gangster Squad" star Josh Brolin has joined the cast of ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’.

Brolin joins actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as faces to the Sin City roll call, which sees Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King and Rosario Dawson among those returning.

Brolin will star as Dwight, a part played by Clive Owen in the 2005 first Sin City movie, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"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 directors Rodriguez and Miller in a statement.

The movie is shooting in Rodriguez`s Troublemaker Studios in Austin.

The storyline involving Dwight was one the more fondly remembered threads of Miller`s Sin City comic mini-series, published in the 1990s by Dark Horse.
