    I had no idea that there is going to be a sequel. Based on the comic?

    You sure hes replacing Owen, and not just playing pre-surgery Dwight?

    Yeah, I also read in other sites that Brolin was playing pre-surgery Dwight.

    It's based on A Dame to Kill For, with some new stuff added in; this one was written by William Monaha who also wrote The Departed. Seems they've already started filming.

    WOW!!! I was wondering if they would recast this role and was heavily disappointed with that idea due to my love for Owen as Dwight. But this somehow excites me.

    Makes sense. They should fix the article title and content, as the reconstructive surgery doesn't happen AFTER A Dame To Kill For but a little after the middle of it. As far as comics go, Sin City continuity isn't THAT difficult, folks ...
    Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me are people that think Final Crisis is good.

    makes sense for them to change actor pre surgery, but Dwight is the only role I've seen Owen play that I've not hated............. well, accept his driver role in the BMW ads.

    didn't see it to be fair, but I even hated him in Children of Men, and I loved the film............

    Considering the film had no problem getting Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt, I can't imagine they wouldn't be able to get Clive Owen (and he did a fine job in the first one). I'm hoping we'll see Clive pop up in the last act of the film. That would also make sense why they'd choose such a radically different looking actor to replace Clive.
