Frank Miller Sin City TV Show in Development

Legendary Signs Rights Deal With Frank Miller For ‘Sin City’ TV Series; Robert Rodriguez In Talks


A sequel, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For", was released in 2014.

Legendary Television has closed an agreement with Frank Miller to turn his seminalSin City franchise into a television series.

Sin Metropolis in fact grew to become a well-liked model after Rodriguez directed the cult basic 2005 movie primarily based on three of Miller's graphic novels set on this fictional, hyper-noir, hyper-pulp world. According to reports, a writer for the project is not yet attached. The collection is about to be govt produced by Miller himself, and director Rodriguez can also be apparently near signing on as an govt producer on the collection.

Frank Miller, creator of the comic and who recovered property rights in summer past year, will produce the series, and the director Robert Rodriguezwho directed the movie "Sin City" of 2005, is in conversations to participate also in the project as a producer.

As part of the deal, an adult-focused animated Sin City prequel series will also be put into production. It seems likely that the series will share a universe with the previous movies, especially with Frank Miller and potentially Rodriguez on board, but it's still very early in the process and those details haven't yet been confirmed. It remains to be seen if Legendary will share Dimension's vision of going with a reboot.

Created by Miller, the Sin City comics first went to print in 1991. Sin City follows various characters trying to survive the hard way in Basin City. A box office hit, the Sin City movie starred Jessica Alba, Benicio del Toro, Brittany Murphy, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, and Elijah Wood.

Now the pair is close to teaming up once more for a TV series based on the comics.

It has been a while since we got any updates about the planned Sin City TV series.

A previous deal was struck to bring Sin City to TV with The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara, though that project never materialized.

In response to Deadline, the deal is that a preliminary 12 months for the brand new Sin Metropolis sequence could be assured, with the intention for it to be available for a neighborhood and/or streaming platform.
