Frank Miller’s Will Eisner’s The Spirit picked up
Our good friends at Variety (the outfit that also brings us the New York Comic Con) tell us North American and British distribution rights Frank Miller’s film version of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, produced by Batfilm’s Michael Uslan, has been picked by Lionsgate, distributor of Marvel’s many D2DVD titles.
Frank has written the script and will be directing the movie as soon as he and Robert Rodriguez wrap up Sin City 2.
Wow. Sounds kinda incestuous, doesn’t it?
The producers are out in Cannes with Frank’s script selling international rights, even as you read these words.
