Live Action Spawn


It was announced in August 2009 that Todd McFarlane had 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 more older audience. It’s not going to be a giant budget with a lot of special effects; it’s going to be more of a horror movie and a thriller movie, not a superhero one. Like the film 'The Departed.'"  On March 31, 2011, Todd McFarlane said that he is three quarters through the script, plans to have the movie around a 10 million dollar budget and the movie will feature no super villains. Michael Jai White said in July 2011 that he was interested in returning to the role for the next film: "I hope [McFarlane] does [make the film]. In the next couple years I might have to produce it myself. It’s a no-brainer. Look at how these movies have done, superhero movies that have gone dark, and there hasn’t been one darker than Spawn. If we do it like we want to, it could be a game changer. I think Todd feels the same way as me – that we go R. Not a kinder, gentler Spawn, we go straight R – like pushing it, pushing NC-17. Give the fans what they expect. That edge brought [the comic book] to where it is. I would really like to show what that character can be." McFarlane revealed to MTV Geek that he's still working on the script and a new animated series, he also mentioned that an Academy Award winning actor is being interest for the part, but would not reveal his name at this time . In July 2013, Jamie Foxx Says He's 'Aggressively Pursuing' the Spawn Reboot. In August 2013, Todd McFarlane hopes to start shooting next year, with the studio wanting his script in by December. On October 10, 2013,  McFarlane revealed to Assignment X that he wants the film to be more like The Conjuring and less Iron Man.
