SIN CITY TV Series In the Works
Back in 2005, director Robert Rodriguez teamed with Frank Miller to bring Miller’s comic series Sin City to the big screen in one of the most visually spectacular films of our time.
And today we’re hearing from Deadline that they are reteaming for a Sin City TV series for Legendary Television.
Miller and Rodriguez will be executive producers along with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For producer Stephen L’Heureux and the head of Miller’s production company, Silenn Thomas.
Legendary guarantees at least one season depending on whether or not it can get set up with a streaming platform or a network.
As part of the deal, Miller will also create a hard-R animated Sin City prequel series based on his graphic novels.
Meanwhile, the 2005 Sin City movie was a quartet of neo-noir tales centering on a mysterious salesman (Josh Hartnett) who narrates a tragic story of co-dependency, while a musclebound vigilante (Mickey Rourke) tears his way through the criminal underworld in search of his lost love (Jaime King).
In another part of the city, a grizzled cop (Bruce Willis) foils the ambitions of a child-killer (Nick Stahl), and an ex-prostitute (Brittany Murphy) evades her ex-pimp (Benicio Del Toro) with the help of her new boyfriend, Dwight (Clive Owen).
Other notable cast included Carla Gugino, Elijah Wood, Rutger Hauer, Rosario Dawson, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Michael Madsen, and Nick Offerman.
Dimension Films released it back on April 1, 2005.
