Representatives from publisher Red Mile Entertainment (Heroes of the Pacific, Gripshift) have announced the signing of a multi-year, worldwide license agreement to develop and to publish games based on Frank Miller's popular Sin City graphic novels.
No financial terms were disclosed, and no details concerning any upcoming projects have yet been announced. However, Miller seems confident in the studio's portrayal of his works, commenting in an official statement that “the Red Mile team has impressed me with its dedication to creating Sin City video games that will remain true to Sin City as I've always seen it."
Set in the gritty, rain drenched borough of Basin City, Frank Miller's Sin City stories focus on a series of intermingling tales oftentimes featuring reoccurring characters caught up in a violent overarching plot.
Told in a film noir-like style, the stories first appeared in comic form in the early 90s, and eventually were adapted as a highly stylized feature film in 2005, which was co-directed by Miller along with Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse).
"Sin City enjoys a broad and devoted following. Its crime noir settings, richly detailed characters, hyper-real action sequences, and engaging stories provide an outstanding groundwork for video games," said Chester Aldridge, CEO of Red Mile Entertainment. "Red Mile is enthusiastic about working with Frank Miller to create a franchise that is worthy of this great property."
