Lionsgate has opened the new official website for the upcoming film adaptation of The Spirit. The movie is slated for a 2009 release and stars Gabriel Macht, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Jaime King, Paz Vega, and Samuel L. Jackson. The Spirit is based on the classic comic book by comics legend Will Eisner and is adapted and directed by Sin City scribe Frank Miller.
The new website has a forum and will feature all sort of promotional material prior to the film’s release. It currently sports a countdown with the words “I’m on my way.” Check it out at http://www.mycityscreams.com/.
You can check out the classic comics that inspired the movie with DC’s collection, The Spirit Archives, Vol. 1, at Amazon.
