Legendary Television (The Expanse, Carnival Row) is about to resurrect a project that Dimension Television and The Weinstein Company have been trying to set up since 2017. Sin City series now has a green light for production; the ones from Legendary Television have a collaboration with Tim Miller (who owns the film and television rights of the franchise) and Robert Rodriguez (the director of the first two films distributed by Weinstein, released in 2005 and 2014).
The two will finance and creatively support the series – they will be on the list of executive producers, along with Stephen L’Heureux, producer of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. According to the agreement, an entire season of Sin City will be produced (which will go on the broadcast to a streaming platform), as well as an adult entertainment series that will serve as the price.
The project started in 2017 by Dimension and The Weinstein Company would have Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead) at the helm, and Len Wiseman (Underworld films) would be among the co-opted directors. But it was abandoned after the Harvey Weinstein scandal. At that time, the series was described as having no connection with the films, introducing new timelines and new characters into the Sin City universe.
