Eva Mendes Has The Spirit

Macht, Jackson, and Johansson have company.

After playing it close to the vest for months, Frank Miller‘s camp has lately unleashed a flood of casting news about the director’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. First came word that Gabriel Macht would play the title role, and face off against Samuel L. Jackson, then we learned that Scarlett Johansson would play the femme fatale Silk N. Floss, and now Variety is reporting another addition to the talent pool.

According to the article, Eva Mendes has signed on, although a specific role isn’t mentioned. (If you’re just joining us now, The Spirit is based on Eisner’s classic comics, in which a cop fakes his own death in order to fight crime as…well, The Spirit.)

At this point, The Spirit gives every indication of being much better than Mendes’ most recent comic-derived project, Ghost Rider. Fans can see her this fall in the Joaquin Phoenix/Mark Wahlberg cop drama We Own the Night (covered in our Fall Movie Preview!).
