The Spirit (2008)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The Spirit, also known as Will Eisner's The Spirit, is an upcoming 2008 American film adaptation based on the newspaper strip of the same name created by Will Eisner. Batfilm, OddLot, and Lionsgate are set to produce. Frank Miller wrote and directed the film, which stars Gabriel Macht as The Spirit and Samuel L. Jackson as his nemesis, The Octopus. Filming began in October 2007, with release scheduled for Christmas Day, 2008.

I saw the trailer for this last night and really liked it. Of course it looks like Sin City, but I liked that too.
Only two things bother me, the Spirit is all in black, not blue and they show the Octopus.

Of course they mention Gabriel Macht and Samuel L. Jackson, but the film has a fairly large amount of female talent.....
Scarlett Johansson as Silken Floss, Eva Mendes as Sand Saref, Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellen Dolan, Jaime King as Lorelei Rox, Paz Vega as Plaster of Paris and Meeghan Holaway as Holly.

You know I always wondered if Daredevils female "entanglements" weren't inspired by The Spirit......
