Frank Miller’s The Spirit Set is Very Green — New Photos!

Yesterday we gave you a first look at the awesome new outdoor banners for Frank Miller’s The Spirit, which has recently wrapped principal photography. And as we told you yesterday, this film is cut from the same fabric of Miller’s other directorial work, Sin City (which he shared with Robert Rodriguez). Based on a comic book by Will Eisner, The Spirit is the tale of a murdered rookie cop who returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a masked hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces from the shadows of central city.

The film has been adapted for the screen by the legendary Frank Miller, whose recent credits include the graphic novels for Sin City and 300. As you will see from the pictures below, this film certainly doesn’t lack style — in fact, it sports a cast that is one part sexy (Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Paz Vega) and two parts badass (Samuel L. Jackson). Combine that with the wicked stylings of Will Eisner’s book and we’ve got ourselves the next best thing to Sin City 2 — and thats saying something.

Take a look at some of the cast on set, in front of the green screen, courtesy of our friends at Dark Horizons:

At the request of Lionsgate, the photos have been removed. Although, we are told that the first teaser trailer for The Spirit will run before Iron Man on May 2nd.

Just a side note: Look at Samuel L. Jackson! That dude is a B.A.M.F if I ever saw one.

The Spirit will hit theaters on January 16, 2009.
