While Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to kill For is set to release on August 22, 2014, The Weinstein Company’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein told The New York Times that they are looking at doing some TV business as well.
Harvey Weinstein revealed:
“The way to add stability to the company is to be in the television business,”
Harvey Weinstein, who spoke along with the company’s president, David Glasser, said his goal was to create a television operation “as powerful as the theatrical division.”
Bob Weinstein was interviewed separately from his brother, said he was developing original projects that would be in tune with his horror- and action-oriented Dimension brand, along with several shows based on movies he’s overseen for the company. He is preparing a pilot based on the Scream films for MTV, and also developing a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s The Mist.
Bob Weinstein also added that he was also hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with a Sin City television series from Mr. Miller and Mr. Rodriguez.
