(written from a Production point of view)
Frank Miller (born 27 January 1957; age 59) is a prolific comic book artist who created two pieces of Star Trek art: the cover of Marvel's Star Trek run's fifth issue, "The Haunting of the Enterprise!", and tenth issue, "Domain of the Dragon God!".
Miller's long career covers the period from the 1970s to the 1990s where comics underwent a dramatic revitalization, his personal influence includes writing and drawing such franchises as Marvel's Wolverine mini-series with Chris Claremont, Marvel's Daredevil, and DC's Batman. Miller's Batman included the retelling of Batman's origin in Batman: Year One and the genre-changing Dark Knight Returns. Miller's work on Daredevil led into his creation Elektra, and both have been the subject of recent movies.
Miller is best known for his film noir-style stories, with perhaps his most famous work being the Sin City series of graphic novels. The popularity of Sin City grew when it became a hit feature film in 2005, co-directed by Miller and Robert Rodriguez. Miller also appeared in the film as an unfortunate priest. Another of Miller's famous comic book works is the five-issue series 300, which also became a blockbuster film in 2007.
Sin City was not Miller's first foray into motion pictures, however. He wrote the stories and co-wrote the screenplays for RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3; he shared screenplay credit on the latter with Star Trek: Enterprise writer and consulting producer Fred Dekker. Miller was not happy with his experience with Hollywood, however, and thus did not return to films until Robert Rodriguez asked him to help create a Sin City movie.
Miller is currently directing an adaptation of Will Eisner's comic The Spirit, for which he also wrote the screenplay. In addition, he is set to re-team with Robert Rodriguez for two more Sin City films.
