Yet more comic adaps
The latest comic to get the big screen treatment is set to be Frank Miller’s The Spirit and Eva Mendes has already signed on to appear. Despite popping up in the less than acclaimed Ghost Rider, Mendes is apparently undaunted enough to pitch up as the love interest to Gabriel Macht’s undead rookie cop returned from the spirit world to battle crime. The ghostly constable will be facing off against Samuel L Jackson’s evil Octopus and Scarlett Johansson, who may or may not be evil. Miller starts shooting in New Mexico next month.
