The long-awaited sequel to Frank Miller’s 2005 Sin City film adaptation is almost here. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set for an August 22, 2014 release date but it looks like we may have a television series to look forward to as well. The Weinstein Company’s Bob Weinstein told The New York Times that they are looking at developing a “Sin City” TV series as well.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
Bob Weinstein, interviewed separately from his brother, said he was developing original projects that would be in tune with his horror and action-oriented Dimension brand, along with several shows based on movies he has overseen for the company. He is preparing a pilot based on the “Scream” films for MTV, for instance, and developing a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s “The Mist.”
Mr. Weinstein said he was also hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with a “Sin City” television series from Mr. Miller and Mr. Rodriguez.
The “Sin City” franchise is based on the graphic novel series of the same name written by Frank Miller. A Dame to Kill For is a comic book limited series first published by Dark Horse Comics in 1993. It is the second story in Frank Miller’s Sin City series, and the first to be published in miniseries format. It was written and drawn entirely by Miller
