Red Mile Entertainment plante voraussichtlich Ende 2009 ein "Sin City" Videospiel für PS3, Xbox 360 und Nintendo Wii zu veröffentlichen... Das Projekt wurde aber aus finanziellen Gründen kurzerhand auf unbestimmte Zeit verschoben.. *g*
Wie Gamespot am 26. August 2008 meldete, arbeitet Transmission Games nicht länger am Videospiel, ein bislang unbekannter Entwickler sei mit der Umsetzung beschäftigt...
[...] Information remains relatively sparse on Sin City the game. Red Mile has previously announced that the game will make use of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, which has powered such titles as Gears of War and Hour of Victory. Reports earlier this year indicated that the game would arrive on the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii in time for Christmas 2009.
Commenting on the direction of the game when it was first announced, design lead Flint Dille said, "Frank [Miller] and I have been having a party coming up with nasty stuff for the game. In true Sin City fashion, some old characters will return, new characters will appear and--without giving anything away--probably die horribly."

[...] Accomplished game and animation veteran, Flint Dille, will spearhead the design, scriptwriting, story generation, and overall production of "Sin City: The Game" (working title). Dille has twenty years of game experience to his name, and has twice won "Story of the Year" for his work on The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and on Dead to Rights. In addition to his solid game and animation credentials, Dille is also a close friend of Sin City creator, Frank Miller - enough so that Miller named the storyteller in his epic 300 "Dilios." "Frank and I met during what I call our ‘professional adolescence’ when he was doing the Dark Knight and I was doing the Transformers cartoon series," says Dille, "and we’ve been great friends ever since." About the Sin City game, Dille adds, "Frank and I have been having a party coming up with nasty stuff for the game. In true Sin City fashion, some old characters will return, new characters will appear and - without giving anything away - probably die horribly. It’s great to be working with the Red Mile team on this project: They clearly share Frank’s and my commitment to bringing a new and true Sin City to interactive life."
Also participating in the game’s development is Union Entertainment. Union’s video-game producer credits include The Red Star and this year’s breakout hit, The Darkness. Union generated the original Sin City concept document that first got Miller interested in adapting Sin City as a video game, and was central to setting up the Sin City project with Red Mile. "Sin City is one of a select few properties that everyone agrees is ideal for video games," said Union President, Richard Leibowitz, "and we’re very proud to help make that happen."
"Flint and Union bring a deep and broad array of video game experience to Sin City and they’ll be integral to Red Mile’s creating a video game experience that delivers on gamers’ and fans’ expectations," said Chester Aldridge, CEO of Red Mile Entertainment.

IGN recently learned that a Sin City videogame was in the works. The news came from our own Film Force website. Film Force, you see, reported that Flint Dille and John Zuur Platten were working on a new movie for Dimension called Backwater. It seems that this announcement inadvertently credited both John Zuur Platten and Flint Dille as writing a new Sin City videogame. And there's the scoop.
Sin City is Frank Miller's critically acclaimed comic series that revolves around a squalid hellhole known as Basin City. The movie, by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez (of El Mariachi, From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado and Spy Kids fame) features an all-star cast and includes events and characters from three of Frank Miller's works: Sin City, The Big Fat Kill and That Yellow Bastard.
While we know nothing of the game (platform, publisher, etcetera), the news comes as no real surprise given our industry's focus on franchise titles, specifically star-studded franchise titles. Given the unique style, gritty subject matter and a cast that includes Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Clarke Duncan, Carla Gugino, Josh Hartnett, Jaime King, Michael Madsen, Brittany Murphy, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Nick Stahl, Bruce Willis and Elijah Wood, Sin City certainly has gaming potential.
