The Spirit, aka Will Eisner's The Spirit, is an upcoming film based on the comic book of the same name created by Will Eisner in 1940. Frank Miller who wrote the screenplay is also directing the movie. The Spirit stars Gabriel Macht in the role of the Spirit and Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus, the Spirit's nemesis. The film, first slated for a January 2009 release, will finally be released for Christmas of December 2008.
Here below the first official teaser trailer of the Spirit:
"Adapted from the legendary comic strip, THE SPIRIT is a classic action-adventure-romance told by genre-twister FRANK MILLER (creator of 300 and SIN CITY). It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the SPIRIT (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the OCTOPUS (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out Spirit’s beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality." (Source: Production Team)
I hope they're not going to make a PG-13 movie with the Spirit.
The original comic book wasn't exactly PG-13 after all:
So a 300% R-rated movie (with salacious hints ;-p) would be much more appropriate!
