Frank Miller Sin City TV Show in Development

Frank Miller Sin City TV Show in Development

It may not have aged spectacularly well, but the big screen adaptation of Sin City felt revolutionary when it happened in 2005.

Rodriguez co-directed the 2005 Sin City movie with Miller, and now they are looking to re-team for this series as executive producers. The Walking Dead writer Glen Mazzara was reportedly attached to write the series with Underworld helmer Len Wiseman set to direct the pilot.

Frank Miller, creator of the comic and who recovered property rights in summer previous 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.

OPEC+ faces "major challenge" in 2020 from competitors' surging output: IEA
OPEC said demand for its crude would average 29.58 million bpd next year, 1.12 million bpd less than in 2019. The forecast was cut by 36,000 Bpd from last month's estimate, growing now by 2.17 Mmbpd.

Frank Miller recently worked with the streaming giant Netflix for their Arthurian series Cursed and seemingly has a television itch he needs to scratch.

The deal on the table is for Legendary to guarantee a first season of the show, contingent on setting it up with a network or streaming platform. It's unclear if both could be a director or the total extent of Miller's involvement, however one imagines he could have a heavy hand within the writing course of as a part of the deal features a separate "hard-R rated" animated collection pitched as "a prequel" primarily based on Miller's graphic novels. 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. As Rodriguez was not involved, the series would have harkened back to Miller's graphic novels, introducing new characters and storylines with no connection to the movies. The first Sin City story was published in 1991 in Dark Horse Presents Fifth Anniversary Special. The film centered on interwoven tales with an ensemble solid that integrated the likes of Jessica Alba, Benicio del Toro, Brittany Murphy, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, and Elijah Wood. (They largely used panels within the comics as literal storyboards for the movie.) The pair ultimately returned to Basin Metropolis for the much less cult appreciated sequel, Sin Metropolis: A Dame to Kill For (2014). This news comes to us from Deadline.
