THR speculates that inactivity – it’s been four fucking years since Sin City - could have led to the rights lapsing. They also mention that the rights are being shopped by Frank Miller’s ‘estate’ – is he dead? Did he commit sepukku after The Spirit? Can’t blame the dude.
Stay tuned for more updates, and a hearty congratulations to IESB for getting this one right.
