Forgive them, Father, for they have sinned… Nearly a decade after exploring the morally gray areas of the black-and-white metropolis of Sin City, Robert Rodriguez has returned with the sequel, A Dame To Kill For (out Aug. 22.) This time, he has dragged Joseph Gordon-Levitt into the depths with him. “It’s sort of a story about the worst in us as humans,” the actor says with a nervous laugh. In the video below, the pair sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss their tale of good guys gone bad.

Keep an eye out for extended interviews with Rodriguez and Gordon-Levitt as part of EW’s upcoming “Lightbulb” series.
