Frank Miller, moviemaker?  That's what the LA Times is reporting in this profile of Miller and his newfound Hollywood fame.  Apparently Miller's been tapped to write and direct a film based on the character "The Spirit" created by Will Eisner.  Miller, who's played a key role in "Sin City" (sharing director credits with Robert Rodriguez), "300" and the upcoming Batman sequel "The Dark Knight" (lifted from Miller's graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns"),  and "Elektra," a character he invented (Miller played no role whatsoever in the disasterous film adaptation) is also said to be at work on an "Al Qaeda attacks Gotham City" book which he said he would title "Holy Terror, Batman!"  There no set release date.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
