Comedy Central has done some serious wooing (is wooing an actual word?) of the Weinstein Brothers, scoring the broadcast cable rights to half a dozen of Weinstein Co.'s newest flicks. Despite the fact that actual work has yet to begin on the film, Sin City 2is among those properties. I hear you saying "Wait a minute, I don't really think there's a lot of comedy in Sin City." And you are right, for the most part. So instead of Comedy Central, the film will debut on the channel's "sibling" Spike TV -- a much better fit.  In the deal, Comedy Central will also pick up rights to new flickScary Movie 4and upcoming Kevin Smith film Clerks 2. This deal should be noted because it may mark the first good programming to air on Spike TV.

Am I excited for Sin City 2. You bet I am. Am I excited for it to be on network television? No ... not really. I don't actually tend to watch much television to begin with, and I can't imagine how heavily butchered this sucker is going to have to be before they'll allow it on cable. Besides, by the time it makes it onto television, I plan on owning the fancy special edition DVD which will no doubt exist.
