Frank Miller’s groundbreaking comic Sin City is finding new life in live-action.
The visionary comics icon most recently adapted his neo-noir stories into feature films with director Robert Rodriguez, with the latest sequel A Dame To Kill For arriving three years ago.
However, Deadline reports that Frank Miller is now working on bringing Sin City to TV with some help from former Walking Dead and Damien showrunner Glen Mazzara.
This Sin City TV show comes on the heels of Mazzara’s Damien — an adaptation of the classic horror movie The Omen — being axed after only a single season on US channel A+E.
Also working on the project as a producer and director is Len Wiseman, who previously shepherded Sleepy Hollow, Hawaii Five-0 and the DC Comics adaptation Lucifer to television.

According to Deadline, Sin City: The TV Series will much more closely follow Frank Miller’s comics canon than the Robert Rodriguez feature films and will introduce simultaneous interacting realities within the show.
There is no network attached quite yet, but we don’t expect it to take long before one of the US premium cable channels tries to snap up the project.
Sin City has bewitched fans with its machine gun-carrying dominatrixes, Far East assassins, vengeance-obsessed ex-army men and various shady underground crime families for nearly 30 years.
Miller’s original comics run stretched on-and-off from 1991 through to 2000, and yet love for the series is still going strong.
