Frank Miller's Spirit?

I would guess that I am the last person in the free comics world to know about this, but Frank Miller has written and is directing a big-screen version of Will Eisner's "The Spirit"?!

Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”

Cool! I really enjoyed Darwyn Cooke's adaption, and of course Will Eisner (for you young whippersnappers out there) is one of the seminal figures in the history of the comics medium, both as a creator and as a thinker. Match that up with Frank Miller, one of the towering names of the modern comics industry, and I have real cause for hope that this movie will rawk.
