During a recent event for the 300 film, Frank Miller said he intends to make The Spirit movie he is writing and directing "very, very true" to Will Eisner's original comic book.

"Just getting started, but I intend to do an extremely faithful adaptation of Will Eisnerıs book and to make it as visually true to his vision as possible," Miller said. "I want to base it more on his early Spirit books because he got drafted in World War II and had to turn it over to his assistants and the characters seem to get softer and more sort of funny.

"I want to go right back to the beginning where The Spirit is more of a mysterious figure, more like The Shadow."

That faithfulness will include his visual approach.

"Just like with Sin City or Calvin & Hobbes, much of what made The Spirit special was his look," Miller said. "And why go to a real place when you can build an Eisner place? Thatıs exactly what we did with Sin City. So it's going to be largely green screen."

Production on The Spirit could begin as early as May.
