Eva Mendes Has The Spirit
Macht, Jackson, and Johansson have company.
According to the article, Eva Mendes has signed on, although a specific role isn't mentioned. (If you're just joining us now, The Spirit is based on Eisner's classic comics, in which a cop fakes his own death in order to fight crime as...well, The Spirit.)
At this point, The Spirit gives every indication of being much better than Mendes' most recent comic-derived project, Ghost Rider. Fans can see her this fall in the Joaquin Phoenix/Mark Wahlberg cop drama We Own the Night (covered in our Fall Movie Preview!).
