Filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are set to work on the show.

After unveiling the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, in theatres next summer, directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller will turn their attention to a TV series based on the Sin City world, produced by The Weinstein Company.

Producer Bob Weinstein, in an interview with The New York Times, remained vague on the format that the TV series might take. Nothing indicates whether the series would have the particular stylized visual effects seen in the first film, released in 2005.

Adapted from the comic books by Miller, Sin City takes the viewer to Basin City, a town characterised by rampant vice. Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Ray Liotta, Rosario Dawson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be in the sequel.

The Weinstein Company also plans to develop a series adapted from the film The Mist, itself adapted from the Stephen King story of the same name and directed by Walking Dead creator Franck Darabont. The forthcoming TV version, in 10 episodes, will tell the story of the inhabitants of a sleepy Maine town who become prisoners of a mysterious supernatural mist.

King’s writings have always appealed to TV and film producers, and interest seems to have spiked recently following the success of the miniseries Under The Dome, adapted from King’s novel.

Weinstein’s production company plans to expand its presence in the TV sector through additional projects, such as an adaptation of Scream for MTV, for which a pilot is reportedly in the works, and Marco Polo, a miniseries for Netflix. —AFP Relaxnews
