Todd McFarlane didn't make the first movie. He created the comic book.

Yep. Didn't even have (credited anyway) hand in the screenplay. Looking it up, didn't realize Alan McElroy (Wrong Turn, Wrong Turn 2021, Halloween 4 and... Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever, lol) was one of the writers.

I initially liked Spawn - the idea of a superhero with a limited amount of power was interesting. I fell off after the first 20 issues or so - I donít know how they resolved that.

But if anyone is going to make a decent version of it, I think the creator has as good of a chance as any.

McFarlane has been talking about this so long that I have doubts this will ever happen.

Been a while since I watched it, but I remember that HBO animated series was pretty good.

Really good. If you liked the Spawn series I highly recommend Castlevania on Netflix.

‘Spawn’ Movie Finds New Writers with ‘Joker,’ ‘Captain America 4’ Scribes (Exclusive)

Todd Silver, Malcolm Spellman and rising screenwriter Matthew Mixom are penning a new script for the film, which still has Jamie Foxx attached to star.

Despite all of the delays, and the creator helming, I have hopes there is potential for a good live action version.

MacFarlane gave an update to this. He’s at WonderCon this weekend. You can take Blumhouse off the title, they aren’t involved. Doubtful MacFarlane is directing.

He says Scott Silver, who wrote Joker and Joker 2, has written 1/2 a script and later this year, they are going to try to pitch it to the studios. He thinks there will be a demand for hard R comic material,

If Todd McFarlane says this is coming, we can expect as quick a turnaround as with Spawn: The Animation. Oh, wait...

At this point I expect them to announce that Tool is doing the soundtrack.

Re: Spawn Movie Reboot -- News, Updates, Wishful Thinking

Has anyone actually watched the 90s Spawn movie in recent years? It hasn't aged well and the FX are as bad as those in Mortal Kombat Anihilation.

Yea the 90s spawn movie was never a good movie tho. I remember it being trashed.

The HBO series was great tho. I watched it a few years ago and itís still great.

Itís a cool comic. Iíve never been obsessed with it. I do like McFarlaneís sorta underdog story.

Surprising since Dippe was a VFX artist/supervisor...

Re: Spawn Movie Reboot -- News, Updates, Wishful Thinking

The issue has never been the script or anything else with the source material, etc. It's always been on the studios not wanting McFarlane to direct it. He's insistent on directing it though, so the studios keep telling him to fuck off. I'd rather see another hardcore animated series than a live action film. Go to Netflix or MAX, I'm sure they'll let him direct some animation episodes. He does have animation direction experience. He did that really cool Pearl Jam video "Do the Evolution," and I hate Pearl Jam.

Re: Spawn Movie Reboot -- News, Updates, Wishful Thinking

Spawn just feels so...'90s. The animated series was weird in that stretches of it were really cool and other parts were boring as sin. I guess modern VFX would allow more of Todd's art to translate in live-action.
