Samuel L. Jackson say 'The Spirit' is a cartoon

    August 21, 2008

Collider caught up with living legend Samuel L. Jackson while he was doing press rounds for 'Lakeview Terrace'. The actor talked about his various comic-based projects, including 'The Spirit' directed by Frank Miller.

Jsckson told reporters that Miller was "cool" to work with and, as a first-time director, willing to defer to the experience of players like Jackson. The actor also described the film, which does not sound much like the 'Sin City' knockoff fans have been complaining about.

"Frank has made the film he wanted to make, and hopefully it’ll be that.  It’s a me.  The movie is a cartoon.  We do Wile E. Coyote type stuff," Jackson said. "I hit [lead actor Gabriel Macht] with toilets and stuff.  We’re both indestructible.  I created him and made him indestructible, and then I turned around and used the stuff on me, so I’m indestructible, and even when I get shot I shake the bullets out of my head.  It’s a cartoon...I get to dress up like a Nazi!"

Jackson also says he hopes he'll be in the 'Iron Man 2' and 'Avengers' movies, but he hasn't heard anything about them from Marvel.

Also, the second season of 'Afrosamurai' is complete. A video game is to follow and the actor just got the first draft of the script for the live-action movie.

That's your Samuel L. Jackson update for today.
