"The Spirit" Comes To The Big Screen
A loooooooooong overdue adaptation brings the seminal comic strip "The Spirit" to the big screen. It's the landmark work by the landmark artist Will Eisner and it will be directed by comix legend Frank Miller. That's like having John Updike editing John Irving or Bruce Springsteen producing Bob Dylan -- a real meeting of legends. Meanwhile, with virtually every other comic book already turned into a film, Shazam and Isis sit by the phone waiting...and waiting...and waiting...and waiting.
