McFarlane Reboots “Spawn”

“Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane tells Coming Soon 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. The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a standalone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary” says McFarlane.

He adds that “the tone of this ‘Spawn’ movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film ‘The Departed’.”

New Line released a widely panned live-action film in 1997 starring Michael Jai White, John Leguizamo and Martin Sheen.
