A big update has been made on the official site for Lionsgate Films' "The Spirit", making it more than a mere splash page now.
There you can view a video greeting from director-writer Frank Miller, in which he praises the original comic strip creator Will Eisner while encouraging fans to keep an eye on the site for future updates about the project.
Others that you can also explore include the film's plot synopsis, teaser poster, and info about cast and crew. Look forward for the coming of production blog, news from the set, and "Central City" page, named after the hometown of the eponymous crime fighter.
Slated for a January 16, 2009 release, "The Spirit" reportedly will begin directly with the adventures of the titular masked crusader instead of serving as an origin story. It also will be more contemporary than the '40s and '50s era of the strip and will aim for a "timeless feel" as well with the protagonist getting involved in a love triangle with Sand Saref and Ellen Dolan.
