Todd McFarlane Talks New Spawn Film

Todd McFarlane Talks New Spawn FilmThough talk about a new Spawn movie has been lingering in the ears of fans everywhere for some time now, it appears that creator Todd McFarlane is just about ready to make it happen — himself!

In a recent interview with Newsarama McFarlane gave the following update:

I’m 80% through the script, I did my due diligence, went around Hollywood,” McFarlane tells the site. “I listened to the pitch from all the big studios, but I just went, ‘nah, I need to make this small and tight and contained.’

And if we keep the budget small, they’ll allow me to do all of that,” McFarlane continues. “[But] if you blow up the budget … and I understand that. I wouldn’t hire me, either. But then I have to give it away. Another option is me just financing it myself. That way I can just … I own all of it.”

Check out the above link for more. Gonna be interesting to see how this all plays out.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • FireRam

    Make it “R”! Make SPAWN the evil, rip ‘em the F up character that he is, give me blood, guts, and a cool ass SPAWN, and i’m there. Spawn is my favorite comic character of my “adulthood”.

  • DavidFullam

    Wasn’t this film going to be “Spawn, but without a Spawn?”

    • Terminal

      Yeah they were going to focus entirely on the two detectives of the story with Spawn basically becoming a secondary element who acts as more of a plot element instead of a main character. That would have been terrible.

    I think I’ve read this headline on horror websites every six months for the past 10 years.

  • The Butcher

    The problem is Todd McFarland is a shit writer too. SPAWN is over.
    When writers like Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison,and Ed Brubaker are out there doing staggering work, McFarland comes off as one thing…outdated.

  • Floydian Trip

    Spawn is the most badass character in comics period. Bring it!

    “it appears that creator Todd McFarlane is just about ready to make it happen — himself!”

    Yeah, and he’s been saying that exact same thing since judt about the day after the original movie opened.

    It’s at the point where I can’t imagine anyone but the most die hard fan even giving a damn about it.

    A sequel to that POS movie? Meh, I’ll give it a rent when/if it finally gets is direct-to-video release…

  • Terminal

    Anything will be better than the Spawn from the nineties. That was a sheer monstrosity. Embarrassing all around.
