Frank Miller's 'Sin City' Is Coming To TV

Sin City TV Series in the Works with Glen Mazzara and Len Wiseman

That said, bold attempts don't usually become franchises, and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For didn't excite critics or audiences.

Released in 2005, Sin City was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller and starred many big-name actors, including Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Benicio Del Toro, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen and the late Powers Boothe.

Len Wiseman, whose feature work includes Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard, will direct the pilot. However, there are quite a few that are beginning to circle Sin City. It's unclear how much Frank Miller will be involved.

Glen Mazzara, who ran The Walking Dead for two seasons, is one of the producers on a new iteration of Sin City now in development by the Weinstein Company. His series of neo-noir comics kicked off in April 1991 with the first serialized installment appearing in "Dark Horse Presents Fifth Anniversary Special".

There has been talk of a television series based on Frank Miller's comic book series Sin City since way back in 2013, but it finally looks like the reboot has gained some forward momentum as Deadline is reporting that a creative team has been assembled.

Miller is also on board as an executive producer, along with Dimension's head honchos, famed executives Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

We don't yet have many plot details, but we do know that the show will distance itself from the movies by "introducing original characters and timelines within the Sin City universe".

Networks are reportedly circling the project, but considering how graphic the graphic novels and films are, run-of-the-mill cable networks like CBS or ABC will likely step away. Even if you're not a fan of his films, he does have the right kind of eye for a series like Sin City. L'Heureux produced the second Sin City film back in 2014.
