Jessica Alba (Machete) is back as stripper Nancy Callahan, who on this evidence is still stripping at Kadie's Bar. She'll appear in the episode The Fat Loss, set after the last film's That Yellow Bastard.
And once again we have Mickey Rourke (The Expendables) as Marv, whose stories this time (Just Another Saturday Night and the titular A Dame To Kill For) are set before last times The Hard Goodbye. The title story will see him pitted against femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green) and teaming up with private eye Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin and – following a facial reconstruction subplot – Clive Owen).
Miller and Rodriguez are once more co-directing, and also returning are Bruce Willis (Looper) as Detective John Hartigan, Rosario Dawson (Trance) as Gail and Jamie King (The Spirit) as Goldie and Wendy. Further new faces include Ray Liotta (Killing Them Softly), Juno Temple (Killer Joe) and Jeremy Piven (Mr Selfridge), with Dennis Haysbert (24) inheriting the role of Manute from the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
