Star, Director Dish on The Spirit

by at . Comments

Legendar comic writer Frank Miller (300) makes his solo debut with an adaptation of Will Eisner's 1940s comic strip The Spirit.

The movie is about a police officer who, after getting shot and killed, comes back to life... with a major agenda. '

'The Spirit is out for justice,'' said star Gabriel Macht who plays the title character. ''He's trying to clean up the city and find his killers.''

At first, Miller turned The Spirit down.

''But three and a half seconds later I said, 'Hold on, nobody else gets to touch it,''' he said. ''It's a comic strip that's had a tremendous effect on my own work.''
