The Weinsteins developing TV projects based on The Mist and Sin City

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

Harvey and Bob Weinstein of The Weinstein Company are making big plans to bolster their presence on the television scene with several projects in the pipeline, including a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s THE MIST and a continuation of the SIN CITY universe with a new series from Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, according to the NY Times.

We've known for a while that The Weinstein Company has been working to develop a small screen version of their hit franchise SCREAM to the small screen, but now the company has revealed that they’re currently working on a “Sin City” series, with Bob Weinstein sharing the the company is hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, directed by Miller and Rodriguez, with the “Sin City” television series.

I'm a bit more excited by the prospect of having Frank Darabont return to horror on television with a 10-part series based on his take on Stephen King's THE MIST. While I think the film is excellent and shouldn't be remade, I can completely get behind a whole new series born of the experiences of others caught in the titular phenomenon.

More news on these projects as we hear it!
