Sin City is due to be adapted into a TV series, it has been announced.
The infamous comic book series has previously been adapted into 2 films by Robert Rodriguez in 2005 and 2014.
Now Frank Miller, who created the books and worked on the films, has reportedly teamed up with former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara to bring the series to the small screen.
Director Len Wiseman is also apparently on-board, whose credits include Sleepy Hollow, Hawaii Five-O and DC comics Lucifer.
Beginning in 1991 and running to 2000, Sin City was an anthology series that followed an eclectic cast of characters through the hyper-violent world of Basin City, with a black and white noir artstyle.
The 2005 film adaptation starred Mickey Rourke and Clive Owen and was met with high praise, with its long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For flopping commercially and critically.
According to reports, Sin City: The TV Series will follow the original comic books much more closely, with the episodic nature presumably allowing the individual stories to be given more attention.
Whilst the project does not yet have a channel or streaming service attached to it, it’s assumed that a US premium cable channel will pick it up, unless Netflix gets there first.
Writer Frank Miller is well-known in the worlds of both comic books and film, with works such as The Dark Knight Returns and a lengthy run on Daredevil being his most popular.
