Paulington James Christensen III's report from the set visit of 'Will Eisner's The Spirit' feature film includes chats with Denny Colt himself, Gabriel Macht and writer/director Frank Miller.

How is this movie going to look like Will Eisner?

Frank Miller: Well, Will Eisner was always a little shorter than I was and balding. It is going to be quite faithful to Will's vision as an artist. I have often laid out storyboards my way. And Eisner's way. And I have always gone with Eisner's way.

There is a lot of humor in this film, right?

Frank Miller: It wouldn't be Will Eisner's Spirit if there wasn't.

What aspect of Will's work did you want to get perfect in translating this project to the screen?

Frank Miller: The passion that Will and I always shared for New York City. You will see some very familiar touches that come from Will Eisner, and that come from the city that we both love.
