What is the Storyline of "The Spirit":
Writer-director Frank Miller described the main character: "The character has a terrifying side to him. This is a man whos died and come back to life. So it twists into fantasy. And of course there are tons of women in it. There have to be its The Spirit. Theyre all in love with him, and hes in love with all of them. You might say hes a bit of a slut."
The film series will not begin with an origin story, but will instead open with the adventures of The Spirit already having begun. The film will be more contemporary than the '40s and '50s era of the strip and will aim for a "timeless feel."
The protagonist will be involved in a love triangle with Sand Saref and Ellen Dolan, the daughter of Central City's Police Commissioner Dolan. The controversial character Ebony White will not appear in the film.
