Plot Details (and a Distributor) for Frank Miller's "The Spirit"

by | May 17, 2007 | Comments

Looks like Frank Miller will be making his solo directorial debut on an adaptation of Will Eisner’s comic book "The Spirit." Lionsgate recently signed on to co-finance / distribute, plus we now have a pretty nifty plot synopsis.

Like most of you, I know practically nothing about "The Spirit," but with Miller at the helm, I’m already interested. The project holds a special place in Miller’s heart, as Eisner was a long-time friend and mentor. So obviously this will be something to see once it hits the screens.

Here’s the closest we’ve got to an official synopsis: "Adapated from the legendary Will Eisner’s graphic novels, The Spirit tells the visceral, action-packed story of a man who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront … all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader. In the vein of Batman Begins and Sin City, The Spirit takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride of a hero who is born, murdered and born again."

Bring it on!
