Bruce Willis in Sin City
Ever since bailing on Dimension and Miramax
to co-founding The Weinstein Company, Bob and Harvey Weinstein have been
working overtime to show that their distribution company has got all the
ties and strengths that they once had. Though the company already has a
full slate of films coming our way, the Weinstein brothers are currently
looking to bring old and new films, or should I say film franchises, to
television. At least, partially.
According to Variety,
Harvey and Bob Weinstein are in final negotiations with Barbara Schneeweiss
to develop a TV slate for The Weinstein Company.
Though the Weinstein's will have a giant mix of television projects ahead
of them, the two top projects that stand out are the adaptations of the
Miramax film Rounders and the Dimension film Sin
City to television.
Also in the works are a skein based on Dimension
Films' "Sin City" -- which would follow in the footsteps of 2006's second
pic in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin" series -- and a skein based on the Miramax
title "Rounders," capitalizing on the current craze for poker playing. Latter
pic starred Matt Damon and Edward Norton, and was penned by Brian Koppelman
and David Levien. John Dahl helmed.
