The Spirit: Original Motion Picture Score (DAVID NEWMAN)

The Spirit (also known as Will Eisner's The Spirit) is an upcoming 2008 American film adaptation based on the newspaper strip of the same name created by Will Eisner. Batfilm, OddLot, and Lionsgate are set to produce. Frank Miller wrote and directed the film, which stars Gabriel Macht as The Spirit and Samuel L. Jackson as his nemesis, The Octopus.
The film also stars the celebrated Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes

Writer / Director Frank Miller had this to say about the character:

"The character has a terrifying side to him. This is a man who's 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 — it's the Spirit. They’re all in love with him, and he’s in love with all of them. You might say he’s a bit of a slut"

The movie's original score is composed by 55 year old American composer David Newman and here's what has to say about the release:

"Frank Miller, the visionary creator of SIN CITY and 300, takes the comic book movie to dazzling new heights with his solo directorial debut THE SPIRIT. Adapted from the seminal series created by the great Will Eisner, THE SPIRIT fuses masterful storytelling with brilliant CGI graphics to sweep us into a stylized world of adventure, danger and romance.
This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media."
