While promoting his new movie Lakeview Terrace, which will be released in the US and Canada on September 19th, popular actor Samuel L. Jackson also had a few things to say about The Spirit, Frank Miller’s (Sin City) adaptation of the legendary Will Eisner’s signature comic book:
“We do Wile E. Coyote kind of stuff. I hit him in the head with toilets. We have wrenches that are as big as this room,” Jackson says. “I created him, so I know he’s indestructible, and I [then] made myself indestructible. We’re the only two people who are like that, so we do outrageous things to each other. Even when I get shot I kind of shake bullets out of my head.”
The Spirit, which will premiere in various countries around Christmas time, has been getting very bad buzz ever since its second trailer was released, and I’m pretty sure stuff like this only make it worse. From what I understand, people want The Spirit to be cool, not a Looney Tunes episode.
