Sin City is a series based on Miller’s graphic novel, which will focus on the original characters only and in the original universe.
Legendary TV has signed a deal with the makers of this series to make the series based on the films that were made earlier. The deal also said that the series would be made based on noir-influenced comics. The indie studio guaranteed the first season for the show pending distribution with a network or any other streaming outlet. Robert, who directed the 2005 movie based on the comics, has made a close to a deal to executive produce.
Issues in Production of the Series
A TV adaptation of the series Sin City was earlier announced in 2017, but the project was delayed due to so many controversies. When the Weinstein Company owned the rights of the film, Harvey Weinstein was a producer. Then the company was forced to declare bankruptcy because of the scandal of Weinstein’s sex abuse; then, Miller re-acquired the film and TV rights.
Due to this, the makers face trouble completing the production, so the series is not getting completed.
As both the films were amazing, so the audience is eagerly waiting for the series to be completed and released soon. But due to these issues and hurdles the makers are facing, it is not confirmed when we will witness this.
Currently, the star cast or the characters of the Sin City TV series is not confirmed yet. Most of it has to do with the fact that it is still not clear that the characters this series will follow. In the year 2017, Deadline told that Glen Mazzara, along with Len Wiseman and Stephen L’Heureux, already joined the project to make this series, which could have whole new characters, and it would strike out in a different direction from the Frank Miller books and movies of Robert Rodriguez. This indicates that it will start afresh with the news characters.
After all of that is said, the rumors have suggested that Miller and Rodriguez will be involved more than it was assumed before. If both of them come back to the Sin City world, it could tell that the series will share even more connection with the earlier films that were originally planned, which could bring back some of the characters like Dwight or Marv. But, till this time, it is unclear what will actually happen.
So basically, there is no such official announcement from the makers about the series. As soon as the hurdles get sorted out and everything comes on track, maybe it will be possible that we will get some good news related to the series. Till then, we need to have patience and should hope for good.
