Frank Miller's "Spirit" Flick picked up/Samuel L. Jackson as Octopus?
Frank Miller’s solo directorial debut is going to be his adaption of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, which has been picked up by Lionsgate for Domestic and UK Distribution.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Samuel L. Jackson is Miller’s first choice to play the villainous, Octopus – The Spirit’s arch-nemesis who started life as a meek lab assistant who reinvents himself as a psychotic nightmare that kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face…
Jackson would be great in the role, but seriously doubt we’ll go through the movie without seeing his face (which has, to my knowledge, always been hidden in the comics).
For more Spirit action, you should check out the new DC Comics series by Darwyn Cook. It is one of the best comics on the stands today.
