Earlier this week, ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! flew down to Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit the green screen sets of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, which director Frank Miller has been shooting at the city’s new facilities, Albuquerque (ABQ) Studios. It brings to life Will Eisner’s classic comic book character Denny Colt, a police officer in Central City who was killed in action, but then returned as The Spirit, a masked crimefighter who has a way of attracting the ladies—and not only the nice ones—but who’s thwarted at every turn by the evil mastermind The Octopus.

The film is being made much like Miller’s Sin City and Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Miller’s 300 with actors doing all of their performances in front of a green screen and all the backgrounds and environments created using the latest computer graphics. This was ComingSoon.net’s second visit to an all green screen set after spending some time on the set of 300 two years ago, and while one might not expect there to not be a lot to write about when a movie is being made with no actual sets, in fact, there’s still stuff to see, since it’s an interesting process that requires a lot of clever workarounds for things that tend to be easy when using practical sets, such as how actors interact with objects within their environment, or lack thereof.

The production had taken up two of the larger soundstages at the brand new Albuquerque Studios facility, where security was extremely tight. Cameras and audio recording were verboten, and anyone who wanted to visit the stages needed to turn in their personal ID in order to get a special badge with an image of what looked like a Frank Miller drawn full body portrait of The Spirit. There wasn’t any question that it was worth losing or forgetting your driver’s license or passport there, if it meant a chance to watch a master like Miller at work. The Spirit is the first production to use the complex’s two newest stages and they were on Day 27 of a shoot that would be going through December 14.

Frank Miller will be video blogging on the official Spirit website. He has posted his first blog for his solo directing effort, essentially letting us know he’s starting out. The flick is currently shooting on green-screen soundstages in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

By the way, it seems that Scarlett’s character goes by the name of Silken Floss, not Silk N. Floss. The site describes her as being “a punk secretary and frigid vixen”. Now that’s what I call interesting! 😉

Paz Vega has also joined the cast of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. She will play the knife-wielding Plaster of Paris.

Principal photography began today in New Mexico. Lionsgate is working with Odd Lot Entertainment to get the film canned in time for release on January 16th, 2009. The production got just enough start to likely avoid the oncoming strike.

Sin City‘s Jaime King has joined the cast of The Spirit. She will be portraying the hypnotizing Lorelei Rox. The character had her first and only appearance in the September 19th, 1948 issue. Her character story arch, while short, was one of the most memorable. She is described as a modern-day siren with a voice that could kill.

Production will begin this month in Albuquerque Studios in New Mexico and is set for release on January 16, 2009.

Eva Mendes chatted to IESB.net about The Spirit and working with Scarlett Johansson on My Brother the Pig:

Q: What about The Spirit? Are you… Sand Saref?

EVA: The Spirit? I’m Sand Saref! I start that in just a couple weeks! Yeah.

Q: So are you reading that old comic strip?

EVA: Yeah, I have some. Frank Miller gave me some of the old comics. And I’m excited because I’ve never actually played, like, a real Femme Fatal. And this woman is just, you know, she is just, she would eat you for breakfast. So yeah, I know, it’s kinda fun!

Q: What can you say about your costume?

EVA: Right now we are thinking a very old-meets-new, Rita-Hayward-ish kinda hair. We have a forties feel to some of the outfits and stuff but obviously modernizing Frank Miller’s, you know, lovely insanity. So it will be a nice little mix. But you, that’s what we’re thinking now, and that can at least change once we’re there, it usually does.

Frank Miller continues to lure femmes fatales for Will Eisner’s The Spirit, lining up Eva Mendes for the key role of Sand Saref, a beauty with dangerous curves. Miller, the comic auteur making his feature-length directorial debut on the film, has welcomed acclaimed cinematographer Bill Pope to make sure the curves are in fine focus.

Mendes joins Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Gabriel Macht in the fantasy thriller about a rookie cop (Macht) who returns from the dead to fight crime as the Spirit from the shadows of Central City.

Sand Saref is described as the only woman who could break the Spirit’s heart. As teenage lovers, the two were torn apart when Sand’s father was accidentally killed by the Spirit’s uncle.

Production will begin in October in New Mexico and will be shot entirely at Albuquerque Studios.

Scarlett Johansson has lined up a series of roles that will see her moving quickly from modern relationships to comic strip noir to costume drama.

Johansson has joined the all-star cast of the ensemble comedy Into You, which she will shoot first, before then materializing as a femme fatale in Will Eisner’s The Spirit, being filmed by Sin City writer/director Frank Miller.

In the winter, she will don a crown for Mary Queen of Scots, a long-gestating project to which she’s has been attached to some time.

In He’s Just Not That Into You, Johansson will play a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that he will leave his wife for her.

She joins Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore in the movie of interconnecting story arcs dealing with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior.

Ken Kwapis (License to Wed) is directing the New Line movie.

For The Spirit, Miller’s adaptation of the classic Eisner film noir comic strip series, Johansson is in final negotiations to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss. Eisner’s strip was known for its women with dangerous curves, and Miller is intent on keeping that tradition. Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct, making her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.
