While I still cannot in good conscience recommend that you be very excited about Frank Miller’s upcoming adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, a featurette that debuted this weekend over at MTV does give us a few titillating reasons to pay attention.
Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendez… how could that duo get any hotter? By adding Sarah Paulson as Ellen Dolan, the whip-smart girl-next-door, and Jaime King as Loreli, a murderous French nightclub dancer, that’s how.
We tried to show you all that was cool about The Spirit last week, but Lionsgate made us take it all down. This week, we see the film as they want us to see it, leaving us far less interested than before.
Yesterday we showed you some advertising art from Frank Miller’s The Spirit — and it was awesome. Today, we have photos from the set with Sam Jackson looking badass — which is an even bigger dose of awesome!
