Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez turned Miller’s graphic novel Sin City into stylish noir for the silver screen over a decade ago, but would a television series be A Show To Kill For?
TV networks are borderline aroused by the thought of old IP, so I think it’s a fair bet. Deadline reports suitors are already lining up for a Sin City television adaptation, one that would introduce new characters in that universe. The project has picked up steam now that it has Bob and Harvey Weinstein and The Walking Dead‘s Glen Mazzara and Len Wiseman (Total Recall) behind it. Mazzura, whose credits also include The Shield and The Omen, is set to write. Wiseman would direct. Miller would serve as an executive producer.
Dark Horse first published Miller’s Sin City graphic novel in April 1991. Sin City hit theaters in 2005 and grossed $150 million. The 2014 sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For couldn’t make back its $65 million budget. The critics went sour and the customers are always right.
