Digital Spy was fortunate enough to score a sizeable amount of time in the company of acclaimed filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn in support of the DVD release of Only God Forgives. A thematically audacious and visually stunning movie, this twisted tale of Ryan Gosling's taciturn drugs dealer becoming embroiled with a vengeance-fuelled policeman called Chang has polarised audiences. But what is it really about? We probed its maker, before delving further into his career to explore the likes of Pusher and Bronson. As for the future, Bond, Beckham and Barbarella are all on the agenda...
Since its release, Only God Forgives has inspired many different interpretations. What's the weirdest one you've encountered so far?

A pioneering joint venture of Im Global and Mexico and L.A-based Canana, founded by Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz, Mexico City-based film sales-financing entity Mundial launched one year ago on the very eve of Ventana Sur. It is the most ambitious initiative ever to sell Latin American films to the world. One year later, Mundial has acquired world sales rights on seven titles, placing three, a considerable feat, at Toronto: “Paradise,” a Mexico City-set love story from Mariana Chenillo (“Nora’s Will”); Alberto Arevalo’s Venezuelan epic “The Liberator,” starring Edgar Ramires (“Carlos”) and Fernando Coimbra’s questioning abduction thriller, “A Wolf at the Door.” All three now play Ventana Sur. “The Well,” Matthew Rowe’s follow-up to Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Leap Year” makes its market premiere in Buenos Aires.

Nine years after the release of Frank Miller’s and Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City, the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be hitting cinemas in August 2014. The stylish and violent film received critical acclaim back in 2005 and fans are no doubt excited for the followup, which is again directed by Miller and Rodriguez and is adapted from the second book in Miller’s graphic novel series.
It now looks like we’re going to be getting even more Sin City, as The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein outlined his future plans in an interview with The New York Times. Believing that it will ‘add stability’ to his company, Weinstein is hungry for a piece of the delicious pie that is television, unsurprising thanks to the massive success of big-budget shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones.

While television's original programming may arguably the best it's ever been, the small screen is rapidly attracting re-imaginings of some big screen properties. Production has already started on Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn series, which is only the tip of the iceberg for Movie-to-tv adaptations. Plans are in the works to bring such properties as Sin City, Stephen King's The Mist, and a series based on the 2010 film The Wolfman to the small screen. As money gets tighter, budgets get smaller and in-home viewing becomes the preferred manner of entertainment consumption, television is poised to welcome its big screen brethren with open arms. Hit the jump for more. The latest news from the arm of the entertainment world concerned with movie properties making the jump to television comes courtesy of Deadline, who reports that The Wolfman series is in the works for NBC.

Television is the new cinema — or something. In continuing trend of bringing big-screen stories to the boob tube, megaproducer Bob Weinstein has revealed that a Sin City and The Mist miniseries are in the works. Miramax recently announced its intent to expand its many properties to the TV market, which is how MTV snatched up the Scream franchise for a show. The upcoming series follows in the footsteps of network programs like Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hannibal and Bates Motel — and the many film-to-tv series still in the works, such as the Coen brothers’ Fargo adaptation and the Nicholas Pileggi-written (again) Goodfellas.

We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

While we don’t always report on pilots because they’re so ethereal, and we hate to get all excited about a show that may or may not even make it past that initial first effort and never on to our screens, when a name like The Weinstein Company (Lee Daniels’ The Butler, The King’s Speech) is involved, we take notice.
And while Harvey Weinstein is the name and face that most of us recognize, promoting his latest movies on the morning shows, it’s his brother Bob’s Dimension Films (the Scary Movie and Scream movie franchises), a subsidiary of The Weinstein Company, who’s making our news today.
According to The New York Times, in conjunction with The Weinstein Company‘s announcement of a major move into television, Bob Weinstein has stated his plans to develop TV series based on the Sin City comic books and Stephen King‘s The Mist. »

The Weinstein Company is looking to get into the TV business, and they are in the process of developing several TV series, including adaptations of Frank Miller's Sin City and Stephen King's The Mist. Both of these are properties that have potential to be great series.
While talking to the New York Times, Harvey Weinstein talked about their TV division, saying, “The way to add stability to the company is to be in the television business,” he then went on to say that his goal was to have a television operation “as powerful as the theatrical division.”
They currently have more than a half a dozen series in development, those series include:
A 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s The Mist.Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez would develop a Sin City TV series.A 10-episode detective drama set in ancient Egypt called Book of the Dead. »

Harvey Weinstein has revealed plans to branch out into television during an interview with the New York Times, listing two former Miramax properties as candidates for the TV treatment. The Weinsteins are apparently plotting to bring both Sin City and The Mist to the small screen, with the former set to “quickly follow” the 2014 release of Sin City: A Dame To Die For.

Robert Rodriguez is hard at work on the eagerly-awaited second Sin City movie, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film 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 film 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. »
