According to Moviehole she is. A sequel to the Frank Miller/Robert Rodriguez smash hit Sin City has been in the works for what seems like forever now, but lately the project's (finally) started gathering steam. And apparently producers are looking to lock down the oft-rumored Angelina Jolie as the female lead.
Jolie would play Ava, the lead character in Miller's "A Dame to Kill For" story, and the basis for Sin City 2. Ava is the former flame of photographer Dwight McCarthy, played by Clive Owen in the first film, who's "loosely attached" to the second. Expect that "loosely" to drop the second the production lands Jolie. After rumors that the Weinstein Company had lost the rights to the potential hit freeing it up to move elsewhere (and maybe actually get started), I'd bet they move quickly to make sure those rumors don't come true.
