Frank Miller said his favorite part of directing The Spirit movie was working with the actors.

"I find actors to be fascinating people because they're much more intelligent than most people think, they're very hard workers," Miller said at The Spirit's UK launch in London on Thursday.

"And you can give them parameters to work within and give them a direction, but then they will create something you don't expect. And that's the real thrill of the job."

For the Christmas Day release, Miller sent he spent six months in pre-production, three months shooting and then a year in post-production.

Miller -- directing by himself for the first time after co-directing Sin City with Robert Rodriguez -- took the job after the death of his friend and The Spirit creator, Will Eisner. The movie was in development before Eisner's death, but Miller said he didn't talk much with him about a film.

"He just said, 'I hope they don't screw it up' and 'I hope to hell they don't give him a gun,'" Miller said. "That's about all he had to say about it."

Miller said he felt a sense of responsibility in bringing Eisner's character to the big screen.

"It was kind of like carrying the rock of Gibraltar around, but it was still a great deal of fun," he said.

Miller was joined at the event by stars of the film Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes.

Jackson, who plays The Octopus, said Miller was "very cool" and "relaxed" as a director.

"Unlike a lot of directors, he hired us because he trusted us and we were the people he wanted," Jackson said. "When we created stuff and we brought it to him and we tried it, he was very open to us doing that and tried to figure out ways to shoot the stuff we wanted to do. So it was great."

Mendes, who plays Sand Saref, said she enjoyed Miller's use of female characters in the movie.

"All the women in this movie are so empowering and there is no damsel in distress," Mendes said. "And I love that because it's such a male-dominated genre. It's something I'm really proud of and proud to be a part of. There's no screaming, 'Save me!' There's none of that in this movie."
