There’s a Sin City TV series in the works, with some big names attached to the project.
According to Deadline, TWC/Dimension is working on a TV series based on Frank Miller’s Sin City graphic novels. The site reveals that the “reboot” will stick much closer to the source material than the two movies, and they’ve hired none other than Glen Mazzara (The Shield, The Walking Dead) to write.
Not only that, but they’ve also tapped Underworld helmer and creator Len Wiseman to direct the pilot (Wiseman previously directed episodes of Sleepy Hollow and Lucifer for TV), with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For producer Stephen L’Heureux overseeing the project. L’Heureux will also produce the series alongside Mazzara, Wiseman and Bob and Harvey Weinstein, as well as Frank Miller himself. That's some top genre firepower right there.
Networks have apparently begun to circle the hot project, which is intended to be a “far departure from the films, introducing original characters and timelines within the Sin City universe.” It'll be interesting to see the storylines and characters they come up with, and what visual style they'll use for the television show.
Released in 2005, Sin City was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller and starred many big-name actors, including Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Benicio Del Toro, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen and the late Powers Boothe. The sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, premiered in 2014, nine years later.
