Blumhouse and Todd McFarlane’s Spawn reboot Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner is still in the works. No worries. And today, McFarlane teased the movie will include some “big, big” talent.
He teases: “I know that people are saying that, ‘Todd, you talk a lot about the movie and the Hollywood stuff and nothing’s really happening,’ and that’s not true. Especially with production being shut down. I can tell you right now there is momentum going on Spawn, the movie, and I’m not just saying that on my end, I’m saying that the things you need to do to eventually get to the point where you’re going to get into production once [the current circumstances} allows us to get into production, all those things are going on right now and we’re adding talent, big, big talent that we haven’t announced yet. I wish I could but I can’t.”
Wa-wa. While that update is kind of a bust, McFarlane did confirm the film is still being worked on as much as possible. So that’s something.
“So the Spawn movie is not a casualty right now, it’s actually, we’re moving as much as we can, given that there’s no production. When will we be in production? I don’t know, that’s still an unknown, but all the steps we need to take to get there are currently being done behind the curtain.”
