Mendes moved to join 'Spirit'


Frank Miller continues to lure femmes fatales for "Will Eisner's The Spirit," lining up Eva Mendes for the key role of Sand Saref, a beauty with dangerous curves (HR 8/22).

Miller, the comics auteur making his feature-length directorial debut on the film, also has welcomed acclaimed cinematographer Bill Pope to make sure the curves are in fine focus.

Mendes joins Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson in the fantasy thriller about a rookie cop (Macht) who returns from the dead to fight crime.
