Frank Miller To Get Into 'The Spirit' of Directing New Movie
Frank Miller will direct a live-action feature adaptation of Will Eisner’s classic comicbook hero, The Spirit, according to Daily Variety. Lionsgate Films will handle domestic and U.K. distribution rights as well as co-finance and co-produce the film with Odd Lot Entertainment, who was selling the film at Cannes last week. Miller also wrote the screenplay for the movie, for which the production start will be influenced by the start date for the Sin City sequel that Miller is creating with director Robert Rodriguez.
The Spirit will be Miller’s solo directorial debut.
