According to Variety, Lionsgate and Odd Lot Entertainment will bankroll the project, with LG doing the distributing in North America and the UK. For those a little unfamiliar with the character: He's a masked vigilante who does battle with random criminals and a regular nemesis known as The Octopus. Miller considered the late Will Eisner "a dear friend" and a "mentor," so obviously he's going to approach his first solo directorial gig with a lot of care: "Translating his vision to the screen will be a labor of love." Word is that production on The Spirit will be scheduled once Mr. Miller knows when he'll be done on Sin City 2 with Robert Rodriguez. So not only will we be getting a new Frank Miller movie, but this gig might light a fire under the Sin City sequel. And that would be a very good thing.
