Creator, Todd McFarlane, Confirms New 'Spawn' Film To Be Made

Creator, Todd McFarlane, Confirms New 'Spawn' Film To Be Made

The demonic leader of Hell's army is to return to our screens, the character's creator has confirmed in a Facebook video.

It may have been 20 (long) years since Spawn first hit UK theatres, and even longer since the comic books were released, but now, Todd McFarlane has confirmed he's to revisit the character.

Spawn's adventures stopped in 1998, but a new movie is in the offing with McFarlane as the director this time around.

McFarlane gave the announcement whilst at San Diego Comic-Con. He also said that Jason Blum, a legendary producer behind Get Out, Split, and the Paranormal Activity franchises, will also be on board to produce the film.

In his Facebook post, upon announcing that Blum will be joining the team, McFarlane said: "The ink is just dry.... no more theoretical, we're now making movies. It's coming, we're going into production... no more talking, it's time to do."

The new film will be McFarlane's directing debut, with the previous Spawn directed by Mark A. Z. Dippe. No casting news has been made, however.

The script, we knew already, was written last year and that it won't be a continuation from the 1997 film but instead a fresh take with a 'dark, R-rated, scary, badass sort of script'.

Fans of the film were excited on social media, for the return of the film.



One fan, on Facebook, wrote: "This definitely should be good as the first Spawn movie was a massive success almost 20 years ago."

Another added: "Congrats on signing Blumhouse - love all those movies and looking forward to Spawn."

Spawn, introduced as Al Simmons in the comic books, was a character who made a deal to return to Earth in exchange for his soul, and see his wife after being killed. His return was as the title character.
