Frank Miller, the visionary creator of SIN CITY and 300, takes the comic book movie to dazzling new heights with his solo directorial debut THE SPIRIT. Adapted from the seminal series created by the great Will Eisner, THE SPIRIT fuses masterful storytelling with brilliant CGI graphics to sweep us into a stylized world of adventure, danger and romance. Miller set out with a baseline goal of creating a PG-13 film of Eisners masterpiece, enabling himself to explore new ways of spinning a tale. In so doing, he reveals another side of Frank Miller, the filmmaker.
THE SPIRIT is the story of Denny Colt, a murdered cop who is mysteriously reborn as the masked crime fighter called the Spirit. Determined to keep his beloved Central City safe, the Spirit pursues Central Citys villains from the shadows and seeks to remove to the worst of them all: the psychotic megalomaniac known as the Octopus. Yet as busy as his ongoing mission keeps him, the dashing crusader always manages to make time for beautiful women, though he never quite knows if they want to seduce, love or kill him. But there is one lady who will never betray him, and to whom he will always be true: Central City, the proud old metropolis where he was born twice.
In bringing this comic book classic to the screen, Miller has recruited a dynamic cast of major stars and up-and-comers. As the titular hero, Gabriel Macht turns in a star-making performance that harkens back to the golden era of Hollywood leading men. He is joined by Samuel L. Jackson as the fiendish Octopus; Scarlett Johansson as the Octopus sidekick, the brilliant, frosty Silken Floss; Eva Mendes as seductive jewel thief Sand Saref; Sarah Paulson as the Spirits stalwart sweetheart, Dr. Ellen Dolan; Jaime King as Lorelei, a bewitching underwater phantom; Paz Vega as the mad, knife-wielding dancer Plaster of Paris; Dan Lauria as the hard-boiled Commissioner Dolan; Stana Katic as Morgenstern, an enthusiastic young cop; and Louis Lombardi in multiple roles as the Octopus cloned brotherhood of henchmen. The films behind-the-scenes artisans include acclaimed director of photography Bill Pope, ASC (SPIDERMAN 2 and 3, the MATRIX trilogy, BOUND) and senior visual effects supervisor Stu Maschwitz (FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER, SIN CITY).
