A Spawn Movie is Within Our Grasp According to Todd McFarlane in New Announcement (VIDEO)
Todd McFarlane, creator of Spawn, took to YouTube to assure fans anxiously awaiting Spawn’s arrival to film that progress is being made and that the script is at 100% complete. What’s left is looking for a producer and taking the necessary steps needed to bring this anti-hero to the big screen. Check out the video below:
McFarlane covers a lot of concerns in the video above and is does let fans know that he has been approached by several people within the industry with interest in making this film. Outside of a script, not much else is set in stone but he does aim to have more concrete information at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, which will be held in July. He also confirmed what many have been begging him to stay true to: any Spawn film created will in fact be rated R for the horror movie it is meant to be. This goes hand in hand with his commentary on the future film he made earlier in an interview with ComicBook.com:
It’s slowly moving forward, just trying to put all the pieces together both from an artistic and a financial. The intent is trying to finance as much as possible internally and then finding partners who will help in the production of it as we move forward. I can argue getting the money might be harder than getting everybody signed off on the story. What I can tell you is what I’ve told everybody else: it will be a definite R. I’m not going for the same crowd that Marvel and DC is going for; I’m going for the same crowd that horror film releases going for. People who want to take their boyfriend or girlfriend or go out with the girls and go to the movies and get spooked.”
Spawn is no stranger to the video game medium, but it is about time to see him on the big screen. With comic book film adaptations on the rise, now is the time see this perfectly demonic creation come to life and who better to bring that vision to life than the creator himself?
