Eva Mendes chatted to IESB.net about The Spirit and working with Scarlett Johansson on My Brother the Pig:
Q: What about The Spirit? Are you… Sand Saref?
EVA: The Spirit? I’m Sand Saref! I start that in just a couple weeks! Yeah.
Q: So are you reading that old comic strip?
EVA: Yeah, I have some. Frank Miller gave me some of the old comics. And I’m excited because I’ve never actually played, like, a real Femme Fatal. And this woman is just, you know, she is just, she would eat you for breakfast. So yeah, I know, it’s kinda fun!
Q: What can you say about your costume?
EVA: Right now we are thinking a very old-meets-new, Rita-Hayward-ish kinda hair. We have a forties feel to some of the outfits and stuff but obviously modernizing Frank Miller’s, you know, lovely insanity. So it will be a nice little mix. But you, that’s what we’re thinking now, and that can at least change once we’re there, it usually does.
