    Default McFarlane Starts Writing New Spawn Movie

    McFarlane Starts Writing New Spawn Movie Source:Josh August 23, 2009

    "Spawn" creator Todd McFarlane has announced that he has officially begun writing the screenplay for a new movie based on the character.

    "The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years," McFarlane said. "The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a standalone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary."

    He added that "the tone of this 'Spawn' movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film 'Departed.'"

    In August of 1997, New Line released a Spawn movie that grossed $87.8 million worldwide. It starred Michael Jai White, John Leguizamo and Martin Sheen.

    when i read the thread title i was about to say he's been talking about this for the entire decade...he was talking about making it more horror oriented and noir-ish...his best bet is to center it around sam and twitch and downplay spawn almost to a supporting character or just a background figure.

    If this plans to be an on going thing then definitely ^^^^

    otherwise he might as well just recap a 15+yr old character with some action, a pot hole story line that prbably doesn't pertain much to the comic with attempts to be dark, but due to length, comes off "circusy" into an hour and a half flick.

    I couldn't get into the other spawn flick on the numerous times i attempted watching it so i hope this is done right.
