Frank Miller is hard at work trying to bring Will Eisner's The Spirit to life properly. On the official Lionsgate site for Will Eisner's The Spirit, Miller relates in his production blog how he and the crew are bending this way and that to remain faithful to Will Eisner's work:
The blog is sparse on details, but rich on poetic language. Miller is clearly pushing himself to create a film that honors Eisner's creation, but is still a Frank Miller creation.
Will Eisner's The Spirit opens January 16th, 2009, and stars Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Sarah Paulson, Dan Lauria, Stana Katic, Johnny Simmons, Louis Lombardi, Jamie King and Paz Vega.
