Find Your Way Back To Sin City With a New TV Reboot

2005's Sin City was one of the major success stories of the early wave of comic book movies. Adapted from Frank Miller's iconic graphic novel series by Robert Rodriguez and featuring an all-star cast of actors like Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson, the movie was a hit with audiences and critics alike.

It remains certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes and went on to earn nearly double its budget at the US box office. Surprisingly, it took nearly ten years for a sequel to happen; Sin City: A Dame To Kill For wasn't released until 2014.

Despite featuring much of the same personnel and an even bigger star-studded cast (with actors like Eva Green and Josh Brolin joining the returning cast of the original), A Dame To Kill For scored poorly with critics and was a box-office flop. By all accounts, the franchise was dead in the water.

Except not! Glen Mazzara, former executive producer of The Walking Dead, and Len Wiseman, director of the Underworld franchise and producer of the shows Sleepy Hollow and Lucifer, have just announced that they're developing a reboot of the franchise for TV!

The pair have promised the show will be a "far departure from the films," which is maybe unsurprising given how gleefully R-rated they were (with cartoonishly graphic violence and prevalent nudity throughout each).

What remains to be seen is if any of the original cast will be returning to their roles. Eva Green and Jessica Alba are certainly no strangers to the world of TV, but something tells me Bruce Willis might not be interested. Then again, with Wiseman having worked with him on the Die Hard franchise, maybe he'll be able to pull some strings?

Then again, a new Hartigan could be pretty cool.

The producers have also hinted that the show will introduce "original characters and timelines within the Sin City universe," meaning that we might get some interesting new faces alongside fan-favorites like Marv and Nancy.

Personally, I hope Miho comes back.

It will be interesting to see what networks might take an interest in this, and whether the show will keep the hyper-stylized look of the movies, or if it will aim for something completely different.

What do you all think?

Maybe you want something sillier to come back to TV? Don't worry, Animaniacs are coming back as well!

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent


Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts. It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
