Is SIN CITY Headed to the TV?
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For arrives in theaters on August 22, 2014. It is rumored that a Sin City TV show could be in the works after the movie. According to Bob Weinstein in an interview with The New York Times The Weinstein Company is looking into a possible Sin City TV series.
Here is 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.
It seems like forever since Sin City arrived in theaters. Hopefully there is enough interest in the sequel for it to be a hit at the box office. If it does, a TV show will easily get a green light. A violent show may be a hard sell for network TV. Perhaps it could go a cable channel like The Walking Dead did with AMC.
