Will Eisner’s cult favourite heading for the big screen


Will Eisner’s classic comic series, “The Spirit”, is heading for the big screen, under the watchful eyes of “Sin City” writer & Co-Director Frank Miller, according to an article on “The Hollywood Reporter” today. Miller was chosen to Direct the film in part for his book co-authored with Eisner in 2005, “Eisner/Miller”.

Running from 1940 through to 1952, “Spirit” featured a masked crime fighter that ran through several major newspapers through the U.S., gathering a fan following throughout the world as the strip began to spread.
In the early 1960’s, two jumbo sized editions of the strip were collected by Harvey Comics, which featured additional stories and art by Eisner. In more recent times, such industry legends as Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons & Paul Pope also put together several of their own takes on the by then classic character.

According to “THR”, an official announcement is expected to be made at the San Diego Comic-Con.
