Lionsgate sure knows how to get comics fans excited. Their release date for Frank Miller’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit is January 19, 2009, yet the assets and photos keep on coming. Here are the film’s newest production stills — which Lionsgate reminds us are “never-before-seen”. (Click on the photos to see ‘em big and pretty.)

Miller is writing and directing this screen version of the Eisner comic, about a cop back from the dead (Gabriel Macht as The Spirit). Jackson plays his evil foe, and Johansson, Sarah Paulson, Paz Vega, Jaime King and Stana Katic play assorted Central City babes.

    I used to read “The Spirit” all the time. I never saw any reference to him being a cop who was back from the dead. He was just a bumbling good hearted guy with no superpowers. The only thing special about him was that he wore an eye mask and black leather gloves. That’s what I liked about him. He was just a regular Joe. Gets my vote for best written comic book ever. Hope they don’t ruin the spirit of The Spirit.

    - Ivor –

    You’re right, so I looked into the details further.

    Eisner’s original character was a PI doused with enough dangerous chemicals to give the impression he was dead. Lionsgate summarizes the plot for Miller’s film version with: “the story of a former rookie-cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as The Spirit.”

    I actually enjoyed this movie much
    more then I did sin city but mostly
    cause I hated sin city it was more
    like a porno then a movie.

    Gabriel Matche is really hot and is
    really really cool as the spirit
    and I hope I can find his fan mail
    address so I can write him!

    my favorite scenes are whenever
    the spirit looks into the camera
    oh yeah makes me crazy!

    love you spirit and matche!
