According to Variety, comicbook scribe Jeph Loeb has been tapped to pen a bigscreen version of The Spirit, based on the hero created in 1940 by Will Eisner, for Odd Lot Entertainment and Batfilm Prods.

The project follows a masked detective who is believed dead and uses that to his advantage to fight the criminals of Central City from his base at Wildwood Cemetery.
