We saw Frank Miller last week at the Comic-Con and the dude wouldn't spill the beans on who would be playing The Spirit in his upcoming feature film. Looks like we didn't have to wait long for word though as the news broke today that Gabriel Macht will star in THE SPIRIT. Macht recently starred in THE GOOD SHEPHERD and has a co-starring role in the Kate Beckinsale thriller WHITEOUT on the way. Macht will star alongside Samuel L. Jackson who will play the villainous Octopus set on destroying all of Central City. Macht has signed on for not just one SPIRIT film but multiple sequels as Lionsgate says they'll be "making more than one SPIRIT movie." Miller is currently wrapping up work on a SIN CITY 2 script with Robert Rodriguez and will then segue to directing SPIRIT this October. Lionsgate is planning a 2009 release.

Okay

I'm with you so far. I still think, Bruce Cambell in, The Hudsucker Proxy would have been perfect, but we don't have a time machine. Macht looks the part tho.

And, Servo what the hell dude? Sky Captain was a good movie.

I'm still not convinced that a "Spirit" movie is a good movie, specially if they are already planning sequels, specially with a first-timer director like Miller.

And I don't care about he's "co-directions", he had Robert Rodriguez at he's side all the time so he really hasn't shown that he can direct a movie on he's own.

AWESOME!!!

First of all let me say i am a huge fan of the Spirit and any true comic lovers will know that it really is one of the greatest comic books of all time. If you havn't picked up an issue grab one, I have a number of the Spirit Archives and the new Spirit Series by Darwyn Cooke is my favorite running series right now. He is an awesome character in an awesome world with an amazing supporting cast and villains.
Not only that but I'm a huge Gabriel Macht fan and have been waiting for this guy to

Not only that but I'm a huge Gabriel Macht fan and have been waiting for this guy to get his due. I hope this will be the one for him he is definitely jumping into a legendary character's shoes.
My minor concern is the tone of the film, I love Frank Miller I just hope he won't take it as dark as Sin City as the Spirit is a very fun character. i'm not asking for camp and cheese just the right level of humor, heart and action just like the comic books!
SWEET!!!!

Let's just hope this movie's more Sin City than Sky Captain.

Great News

This is totally great news - He isn't a well known name but he's a great actor. Anyone who's seen A Love Song For Bobby Long can only agree with this.
And I actually think that he will do very good as The Spirit...
How about you?
