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.

Weinstein TV

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.

Two of the early films coming our way from The Weinstein Company this year are Matador, Derailed and Transamerica.

Stay tuned for updates.
