The Spirit Gets More Dough

Specialty finance and investment company Continental Entertainment Capital has signed on to partially finance Will Eisner’s The Spirit, now in post-production for Odd Lot Entertainment and Lionsgate, says The Hollywood Reporter.

CEC, an affiliate of Citi, partnered with funds managed by Qualia Capital to provide partial production and distribution financing for Odd Lot, which has sold most international territories for the film, including a multiterritory deal with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.

“With ‘Will Eisner’s The Spirit,’ we believe in the producing capability, judgment and business acumen of Odd Lot, the creative genius of Frank Miller as well as the great cast involved in this exciting project,” said D. Jeffrey Andrick, CEC’s managing director and head of its Los Angeles office.
