Frank Miller, Sin City comic book creator who helped direct the adaptation next to Robert Rodriguez, has decided that directing may be the gig for him..
Miller to Direct The Spirit
According to Variety, Frank Miller will adapt and direct The Spirit, based on comic legend Will Eisner's graphic novel.
Though news on Miller's move broke today, Comic-Con is still hoping to surprise fans with an announcement on Saturday.
The Spirit, which debuted in 1940, tells the story of a masked detective who is believed to be dead. Using a mausoleum as his home base, Eisner's character fights crime in the dark shadows of Central City, using cunning and ingenious forms of punishment.
Odd Lot bought rights to The Spirit from Will Eisner back in 2004. It looks like they did so just in time, as the author passed away last year.
Miller has quickly become a busy man in film. After co-directing Sin City, the comic book writer now director immediately signed on to Sin City 2; also with Robert Rodriguez at the helm. Another one of Miller's graphic novels, 300, is also far along in production and, judging by the video diaries, is looking pretty damn amazing.
