There are some combinations of actors/directors that the audience would expect when they see them. Sam Raimi has Bruce Campbell, Rian Johnson has Joseph Gordon-Levitt And the Noah Seguin, and for Robert Rodriguez one of his frequent lieutenants is the great, Real life badass Danny Trejo. However, these collaborators do not have a track record, and in the case of Rodriguez, Trejo and Sin Cityit seems that the potential role of the actor in a comic book movie went to Mickey Rourke for a rather funny reason.
While talking to Danny Trejo in advance next movie Minions: the rise of a puppyI had a question, Robert Rodriguez, that I was burning to ask him. Funny enough, it wasn’t about his absence in Sin Citybut rather remove Trejo from the 2019 team Alita: Battle Angel. While he’s still not sure why he was left off the anime adaptation list, Danny Trejo stated that he was up for the role of Marv in Frank Miller’s co-directed Frank Miller.
However, it wasn’t meant to be, because the actor apparently didn’t fulfill a very special requirement that Robert Rodriguez had for the role. Address his absence in Alita And the Sin CityDanny Trejo said,
To be fair, Marv’s character is supposed to be so hideous that most women freak out about him. We see this factor playing its role during Sin City “The Hard Goodbye” clip, where the character of Mickey Rourke somehow finds herself entangled with the beautiful Goldby (Jaime King) before her premature death.
Although there are prosthetics to make Rourke look more like his graphic novel counterpart, His ‘terrifyingly distorted’ face Admittedly made him naturally fit as one of Sin City The most persistent protectors. With a spate of pro-boxing injuries and reconstructive surgeries that followed, Mickey Rourke’s Physical Traits were nominated (as well as his career comeback after his Academy Award appearance. the gladiator) Make it fit the part.
It’s not like Danny Trejo won’t keep working with Robert Rodriguez again. In fact, that was only two years later Sin City 2005 statement that the two men collaborated on one of their greatest projects: the short that would spawn sickle (Which appeared in the theatrical version of the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino double feature Grindhouse). It’s a role the actor would love to re-enact, either in Next Netflix Spy kids Reboot, or in I promised earlier Scythe kills in space.
This story is all about the way to talk about it Alita: Battle AngelA movie with a very motivated fan base to see its sequel, Robert Rodriguez, James Cameron, and Rosa Salazar have pushed for the project. If Alita Army fans were pushing for Trejo to appear in this virtual sequel, his reaction to his potential casting was as positive as you’d expect:
There you have it, people. While it seems very unlikely that we’ll be able to bring Danny Trejo into the world Sin City (He also isn’t there Sin City: A woman to kill for), there are still some key opportunities to see the actor working with his longtime collaborator Robert Rodriguez. Who do you know? Maybe there’s room for Mickey Rourke to join some of these worlds, too.
Meanwhile, you can hear Danny Trejo bring Stronghold, a member of Vicious 6 to life, Minions: the rise of a puppywhich opens this weekend (starting with early deals on Thursday).
