Todd McFarlane has revealed that the script for his frequently delayed Spawn reboot is currently in the hands of another writer-director for polishing before he takes the new script out into Hollywood.
“Right now it’s being polished by another writer-director from the script that we handed him. He’s supposed to be done with it here in a few weeks, and then once we sort of go back and forth and tighten it up a little bit, then we’re going into Hollywood and we’re gonna get a yes or no,” McFarlane told BeTerrific.
“Here’s what I can tell you: I have people with money on the sidelines. There are people that are gonna help me make this movie. The question is, do we go into Hollywood, make a deal with Hollywood, go and make the production, and then come back? Or do I take the outside money, go make it, and then come back to Hollywood?”
McFarlane continued to claim his Spawn reboot will be entering production in the future and “It’s not an ‘if,’ it’s a ‘when.’”
“Either way, the movie’s coming,” McFarlane continued. “It’s not an ‘if,’ it’s a ‘when.’ I just think that it would be better for the process if we could attach one of the studios in advance, and then go put it out. Because then we’d be able to make an announcement of the release date, and a couple of things that matter to the fans, knowing that it’s coming instead of making it and trying to get the release date later.”
McFarlane had previously signed a deal with Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions to produce the movie back in 2017, with Jamie Foxx cast as Spawn alongside Jeremy Renner as Twitch. However, based on McFarlane’s latest comments, it seems that everything may well be up in the air once again. Do you think the Spawn reboot will ever get made?
