Sin City: The TV Show is coming to a screen near you! A reboot of Frank Miller’s comic book series which lives under the dark umbrella of Sin City, is getting a fresh new make-over which differs from the big screen adaptations, in the form of a TV series from TWC/Dimension with a little help from the Weinstein Company.
Staying close to the premise of the wonderfully animated comic series, The Walking Dead and The Omen showrunner, Glen Mazzara has been recruited to tackle writing the series which will be directed by Len Wiseman, a man who has produced series such as Lucifer and Sleepy Hollow and helmed Underworld.
Also on board is Stephen L’Heureux (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) overseeing this and will act as the producer with Miller, Mazzara, Wiseman and Bob & Harvey Weinstein.
Frank Miller’s iconic comic series has previously been adapted for the big screen twice in the 2005 Sin City A film that explores the dark and miserable town, Basin City, and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in violent corruption which starred Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Rosario Dawson and Benicio Del Toro. A follow-up didn’t arise until the 2014 Sin City: A Dame to Kill for which attracted a bigger star-studded cast with Mickey Rourke, a returning Alba and Boothe, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Ray Liotta. Both were directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, the first with assistance from Quentin Tarantino.
The new series is reported to have various networks circling around the project which will likely introduce original characters set in the already established universe.
