I hope this series ending up being animated. For it to be a live action one it will need a huge budget. And like the article mentions it will need original stories for the T.V. show to work. I wonder how involve Miller is in the T.V. series.October 24, 2005 - Frank Miller's Sin City graphic novels were turned into a critically and commercially successful feature film earlier this year. Director Robert Rodriguez has already confirmed that a sequel is in the works for 2006 and will be based primarily on Miller's A Dame to Kill For. Variety is reporting that the Sin City franchise will continue on the small screen following the release of Sin City 2.
"Also in the works [is] a [series] based on Dimension Films' 'Sin City' -- which would follow in the footsteps of 2006's second pic in Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin' series," Variety stated.
Details on the series will likely remain nebulous for some time, but a 2007 release seems a likely target. Whether the series will be live-action or animated is also unclear, though it would be difficult for a weekly live-action TV series to follow the visual template laid out by Rodriguez's film.
It's also unknown if the series will translate the remaining Sin City graphic novels or be based strictly on all new tales. Considering there are only a handful of Miller's Sin graphic novels remaining, it's a near-certainty that the bulk of episodes will need to be original stories.
The level of involvement from Rodriguez and Miller is also unknown. More details should become available when Miller and Rodriguez begin promoting the Sin City silver screen sequel next year.
