Robert Rodriguez is hard at work on the eagerly-awaited second Sin City movie, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The movie was originally due in cinemas this year, but has been put back to a release in August 2014 instead. That means it'll follow the first movie by nine years, but you won't have to wait too long after that for further on-screen Sin City adventures, it seems.

That's because The Weinstein Company is reportedly mulling over a Sin City television spin-off, which would follow the cinematic release of A Dame To Kill For. Both Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez are involved in the television production.

The Weinstein Company also has the television take on Scream on its slate, A pilot for that is underway for MTV.

Also, the firm is reportedly working with Frank Darabont to put together a 10-part television series of The Mist, based on the Stephen King book. Darabont previously made a rightly-acclaimed movie version of the book.
