The Weinsteins Entering a New Dimension with TV Projects Based on The Mist and Sin City
For better or worse the Weinsteins have kept some of our favorite film franchises alive and kicking with their horror arm, Dimension. Now the company Bob and Harvey built is ready to turn its attention to the small screen.
Bob Weinstein revealed some rather interesting info recently to The New York Times. Weinstein 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.” That's not all though as he is also hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film Sin City: A Dame to Die For, directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with a “Sin City” television series from Mr. Miller and Mr. Rodriguez.
How they will fare on TV is anyone's guess, but one thing is certain: The horror genre has never been hotter on the old boob tube!
Sin City: A Dame to Die For will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on August 22nd, 2014. Stay tuned.
