Frank Miller Gets Back Film and TV Rights To SIN CITY

Following the multi-million dollar sale of The Weinstein Company, Frank Miller has regained the Film and TV rights to his noir comic book series. Details after the jump...

When Sin City hit the big screen in 2005, the film was distributed by Miramax, a company founded by the Weinstein Brothers. As a result of producer Harvey Weinstein's much-publicized downfall last year, the Weinstein Company went into bankruptcy and had to be sold off. Lantern Capital Partners recently bought the studio for S289 million.

Miller opposed the inclusion of the rights to Sin City in the sale to Lantern. As part of a settlement,  Lantern agreed to give Miller the rights to the 2005 film as well as any future Sin City film and tv adaptations. 2014's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is not part of this arrangement.

In 2017, a Sin City tv series spearheaded by former showrunner of The Walking Dead Glenn Mazzara and Underworld Director Len Wiseman was in the works. It seems unlikely that Miller will proceed with those plans now that he has the tv rights to his creation.

Miller co-directed both films in the series with Robert Rodriguez. The original was a hit, earning $158 million at the box office while the sequel brought in only $39 million. Would you like to see more stories set in the world of Sin City? Let us know in the comments.
