Sin City 2: Angelina Out, Rachel In

Sin City 2: Angelina Out, Rachel In

A source close to the production of Sin City 2 is claiming that Angelina Jolie is out of the running and Rachel Weisz is in. Director Robert Rodriguez has always wanted Angelina to star in his sequel Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For but because of scheduling conflicts, it looks like Rachel might be taking on the role of Ava Lord. Rachel Weisz: A Dame To Kill For? Hmmmm…

    why was she all smiles when she was out with her friend in New Orleans, but at the GG she seemed so miserable and it looked like it killed her to talk or smile.

    **********************************

    What pictures are you looking at? There are plenty of pictures of her talking and smiling at the GG’s. You are looking at pictures of someone else, obviously.

    What the E! wanted her to say about “What they did today?” was, Angelina to say “I had hot Jungle Sex with my sweetie to help him relax”. The media try to put people in a box, based on past statements or actions.
    It might be nice to be filthy rich, but to have mega stardom like B&A, I would have cut a B e e yo tch already starting with the asinine Ryan Seacreast.

  • Film Noir

    Angelina will always be interested in doing “dark” themed films. That’s the only way she would agree to do Mr & Mrs. Smith, if it had a dark but comic twist. Sin City should be one of those creative films that would have been good for her but as she & Brad have said, now that they have children, they are rethinking film choices. I still see her in a great dark David Lynch type film. You can be dark, sinister, film noir without resorting to a bloodfest. She should follow the path of Johnny Depp.

  • Film Noir

    Oh I am still hoping for a Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie film. Not Wuthering Heights.
    I can see it as something very comtemporary.

  • Alba

    Everybody is better than Jolie. I loved SC1 and for me, Angelina would ruin the sequel. Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson are sexy enough.

  • ntt

    Hi Mediterranean, good to hear from you and to know that the procedure went well. We were all worried about you.

  • gitane

    i was kind of hoping that angie would do this one…and it sounds like there’s still the off chance that she might. anyhoo, are there any rachel weisz fans willing to help me out? her name is familiar, her face not so much. what else has she been in and should i be paying attention to her?

  • Passing Through

    ROTFLMAO! Replacing Angelina Jolie with Rachel Weisz…Gimme a freaking break! I like Rachel Weisz, she’s a great actress…BUT…as a sex siren capable of getting a man to go against his moral code and ethics? Not believable. This about like asking people to believe Reese Witherspoon, Little Miss Wholesome, as a drug-addicted crack ho.

    Hi Medi, S
    So glad to hear from you.
    It is not uncommon to experience all these feelings. Know that It will get better with time. In the meanwhile, surround yourself with the people you love most.
    Let them help you through your pain, especially your husband. he is also experiencing a loss.
    Post as aften as you wish, I have not been on this board for long, but I notice there are a lot of caring people here, I am sure they will be of help to you if you ever need any.

  • phie

    oohhh I yhink Angelina Jolie is also good for the role but since her priority is her family so its the issue besides Angie already proved that any movie she made was a success in the industry! I love her in this movie but I love her most if shes with Brad, Madd, Z and cutie Shiloh!

  • Cameron Diaz is better

    it won’t be as good as Sin City 1 anyway. don’t ya all love it that they dragged jolie’s name all this time as having her attached to this movie. it was all for publicity. notice how they still won’t say it’s definite. They want to keep that interest there.

    what made the first interesting was how the graphic novel was translated on film. The cinematography was outstanding. But now? well we’ve see it already. The novelty is gone.

  • http://UK IGNORE

    pLEASE LETS NOT MAKE US WEEKLY BIGGER THAN IT IS,THEY A LOOKING FOR THAT.SURELY BY NOW EVERYONE WHO DOUBTED THAT THESE STORIES ARE MADE UP WILL SEE IT NOW.CAN,T YOU SEE NOW THEY ARE ALL GOING BACK TO PICK UP STORIES AND PRETENDING THEY ARE NEW.

    The hotel story was written months ago and the writer later admited that they lied because they had not seen Angelina for a long time,so they made it up.when Brad was filming Oceans 13,I hope someone will find that story.

    Angelina has worked with a lot of people and they all say she is a proffessinal.I hope people will find and post all the articles were people who she has worked with have said so, thats the best way to kill this story.In fact x is known to being a diva.

  • gitane

    jolie & depp would be an interesting onscreen combination. i wonder if angie would work with tim burton…i would really like to see her in a tarantino film. fingers crossed that it happens…

  • Cahy

    “This about like asking people to believe Reese Witherspoon, Little Miss Wholesome, as a drug-addicted crack ho.”

    Reese did play one in a movie called “Freeway”. As for Rachel Weisz, i think she would be a better choice than Angelina Jolie for the role, Weisz is a much better actress.

    What IS it with US? They were driving X to the brink of suicide not too long ago b’cuz X had f*cked with them one time too often, but what did Angie ever do to them?

  • briseis

    Gitane:

    Rachel Weisz is a British actress who appeared in such movies as The Constant Gardener for which she won Oscar BSActress, The Fountain which she costarred in with Hugh Jackman and which came out not too long ago, and she was also with Hugh Grant in About a Boy, and with Brendan Frasier in the two The Mummy movies.

    I love Rachel Weisz, but I have to agree that she doesn’t exude that smoldering sexuality that men would kill for — Angie has it, and so does Scarlett Johansson to a certain extent.

    ============

    Gitane, I hope you are not kidding. Anyhoo, Rachel Weisz won Best Supporting Actress Oscar last year for her role in The Constant Gardener. But one shouldn’t blame you for not knowing that anyway, because People magazine, on its post Oscar issue, had on their cover GC (who won BSA), Reese (who won BA), JLo (who didn’t win anything) and JA (who didn’t win anything either). No Weisz (who won BSA) and no Hoffman (who won BA)

  • BB

    I was actually hoping Angie would do another Tomb raider. just one more. lol that would be no for sin city.

  • gitane

    just came back from imdb.com and turns out i’ve seen quite a few rachel weisz films, she just never made an impression on me. i’ve seen runaway jury 3 times (my cousin’s in it) and i totally didn’t notice her or connect her face with her name…

    nope. not kidding at all. she’s never made an impression on me. i’ve seen at least 5 films she was in and i totally didn’t notice her. same can be said for naomi watts. she could be standing in front of me and i wouldn’t realize it. hell, she could be sitting in my office right now and i wouldn’t know.

  • Amaya

    Hey guys, watching the View (it’s on break now) they’re going to talk about Brad and Angelina. I have a feeling that Rosie is tired of it lol I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t enjoy having to explain things to the twit like she’s some kind of child…

    “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein

    What a beautiful quote. I love this guy Einstein, used to be fascinated with his theory of relativity when i was in highschool. Anyways, Dragonfly, you quoted this at the right time at the right place. Angelina is definitely facing a lot of opposition right now and iam sure she’ll overcome all this with great grace and the world will see what a great soul she is.

    I did’nt expect the American media to be such hypocrites. And i mean Americans are supposedly the most “open minded” of the bunch. Give Brad and Angie the respect they deserve and GIVE THEM E BREAK!!!!!! FOR HEAVEN”S SAKE!!!
    Could someone even undo what the media and the tabs are doing to them?? This is not fair!!!! Do you understand what i mean?

    First of all, that PEREZ HILton guy is ruining their lives with his website. Down with PH. And TMZ caters to all stupid dumb people. These both sites if they come down, all will be well. I know that’s not going to happen but i wish these two sites all the ‘bad luck’ for all the crappy stuff they carry. PEACE.

  • Felix

    I hope its true, Rachel Weisz is a great actress.

    P.S. gitane, you should get out more.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith

    Guys, I can’t stand reading all the negativity on Angie and so I’m going to try and stay off the blogs and boards for a couple of months. I will also keep away from the tabloid magazines and the entertainment shows. Fans on this site are truly intelligent, funny, witty and it will be hard to stay away but I’ve got to do it for my sanity. Keep on fighting the good fight and I know that Angie and Brad will weather whatever storms come their way and they will be okay.

  • Moviemom

    I think Rachel Weisz would be perfect for the role.

  • OYE VEY

    Even The View has run with that tabloid story. OY! Did anyone bother to confirm with Cindy G?

  • bluemoon

    OT Anyone following the T.R Knight and Isaiah Washington thing? Isaiah was so out of place to make that stament in the middle of the press room I’m happy that “Izzie” lol calling him out, and this is getting sad but ABC should fire Isaiah.

    OT2 People online is claiming that JT and Cameron got into a fight at the Prince party, because he was talking to Jessica biel and I can’t beleive that People is linking Page six as other media outlet who report the incident!

  • Gussie

    So the character is a strong beautiful siren for whom men forget everything? I can’t help thinking it would not be a very interesting role for Angie: been there… done that. And if Angie doesn’t want the role of course other actresses are being considered for it. Now, I can’t remember a single Rachel Weisz film, but Rodriguez will surely try to find the right actress to play that BD babe.

    thanks for the concern, but i get out plenty. rachel weisz isn’t on my must see list. it’s a position that must be earned.

  • kiki

    Hi Medi, I wish you well, you’ll recover soon physically and mentally too!

    As for US Weekly and all these fictionstory-writing tabs, I’m tired of them. I hope the public sees that their stories are made in fantasyland.

  • micro

    There are many reasons when one is chosen for a movie role, not just acting ability. The factors in deciding who to cast is based on the COMBINATION of the following, NEVER one reason.

    1) amount of compensation. Jolie may demand more money because of being more famous. If I were an actor and if I am busy on other things, you had better pay me enough for me to give you my time. This may not be the amount the studio has budgeted for.

    2) acting talent

    3) agreeing with how the script is written. Jolie may interpret the character different than the director, or they may have different ideas on the details , such as amount of violence, nudity etc.

    4) scheduling conflict. Many times, an actor cannot accept a role because of scheduling. Remember, Jolie is alternating parenthood with Brad.

    5) The producer or director may want to work with this versus the other person.

    Sincity2 may be attaching Jolie’s name in order to generate publicity. If I were the PR for this movie, I may use the same tactic. It seems to have worked for many people.

  • Kit

    Rachel Weisz can act circles around Angelina Jolie.

    Jay Z was with Beyonce the whole GG. Did we see him having interview left and right ? .As I watch the video of E, ET, AH. she was nice and polite, nothing inappropiate, trying to let the spotlight focus on Brad, afterall , its Brad’s night. I’m glad they are moving to NO and have some peace with kids. poor angelina!

  • ntt

    I have no opinion on who is better for the role, but with the timing of the movie shooting in 08, I think it’s better that Weisz get it. AJ is probably planning to be pregnant by then.

  • Jeff

    Rachel Weisz is a much better actress than Angelina Jolie.

  • Besane

    Mediterranean,

    I’m sorry, I was away from the site for a while and missed what happened to you, but I understand you are in great distress. I tried to dig through the GG threads to find out what happened to you but just wanted to let you know that I felt so compelled to send you my best wishes and a warm hug, whatever you are going through (health?) that you have us here united in support for you. As I said before somewhere, we came together here in support of BAMZS and thanks to them now became a big family of friends. Whatever it is, every moment counts in life and it’s up to us to make it the best it can be…. we a solely responsible of what we are doing today at this moment. That’s why I respect the way Jolie-Pitt are leading their lives. Be strong, we are here for you.

  • Frenchy

    What happend to Rodriquez’ girlfriend Rose McGowan? I saw that there is a thread on her on JJ. What happend to her eyes? Rose got a little backlash just like Angelina did. Bob Rodriguez left his wife of 16 years and 4 children I think. He quickly linked up with Rose which got tongues with nothing to do, wagging.

  • Gussie
  • Marina

    Rachel *is* a dame to kill for. Angelina is just an anorexic bad actress with enormous and ugly mouth, no talent at all. I’m glad she’s out. Rachel is a awesome actress, in any kin of movie, from drama to comedy to romance to Sin City-like. Sin City is violent but it’s a great movie, great piece of art.

  • micro

    I dont mind if Rachel takes this role.

    Jolie is busy being a mother. Brad has many projects lined up and will be busy. I think, with 3 children, it will be good for her to spend sometime at home and settle with the kids.

    Jolie is only 31. She has many years of acting ahead of her. She said in those interviews at “the good shepherd”, that in acting, you can take a year off and come back and you still have a job.

    I always feel if you have talent, you can take a few years off and still have a job. Take a look at Julia Roberts. When she had the twins, she moved the whole family to Tao in the New Mexico.

  • u know its the truth

    Like always Angie should do what the tabs and haters want from her. Return Brad to his ex and move on with her life. that is the only way she will be left alone. Let Brad be miserable with the X.
