Frank Miller to direct The Spirit

According to Newsarama, Frank Miller will direct the forthcoming movie version of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. Miller was a friend of Eisner’s and he reportedly plans to keep the movie close to the source material.

Eisner drew The Spirit in an atmospheric, cinematic style that lends itself to film adaptation. So long as this doesn’t become Frank Miller’s All-Star Spirit in Sin City, I think he could make a good film.
