The role of Ava Lord was originally written with Angelina Jolie in mind however it is Eva Green that the duo have picked. The character has ben described by Miller as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.”
Rodriguez and Miller said, “We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”
