Creator Todd McFarlane Announces Plans For New “Spawn” Movie

Creator Todd McFarlane Announces Plans For New "Spawn" Movie is reporting that Spawn creator and co-writer Todd McFarlane, speaking from a panel at the 2011 New York Comic Con, revealed plans for a new movie based on the popular comic.

“A low-budget “Spawn” movie is also being planned, one that will take its story cues from the current, more grounded in reality tone of the book,” McFarlane was quoted as saying.

The 1997 live-action film version of Spawn starred Michael Jai White in the titular role, while the HBO miniseries Todd McFarlane’s Spawn saw the character voiced by Keith David.

It wasn’t exactly specified whether this new Spawn project will be live-action or animated. Either way, who would you like see or hear as Spawn this time around?

I hated the movie but loved the animated series. I truthfully don’t think a lot of people would go out to see a new Spawn movie. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of support for the character these days, and the comics seem to be getting worse and worse. Maybe if they found the right director (Alex Proyas) and the right actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor), this project could go somewhere, but knowing McFarlane, if he’s the one that wrote the script then it won’t be very good. He’s not a great writer and certainly isn’t the one he was a long time ago.
