"I'm not sure if I'm supposed to say that, but I'm going to say November, I'm going to be honest and put it out there," the actress, who stars in the "Sin City" films as Gail, told MTV News on the red carpet for "10 Years," her new Channing Tatum-starring rom-com. "It's very soon. Very excited."
Though Dawson has yet to read a script for the "Sin City" sequel, she's already well acquainted with the graphic novel that "A Dame to Kill For" is based on.
"It's sort of a prequel to the 'Sin City' we've already watched, so you'll understand the references we were making in that one," she said. "The new face thing, all of that interesting stuff."
It's not Gail's face that gets reworked in the comics — that honor goes to Dwight McCarthy, the good-intentioned photographer played by Clive Owen in the first "Sin City" film — but Gail might be getting some kind of makeover anyway.
"You might have to figure out which one's me at some point," she teased. "We're going to play with that."
