Spawn sequel talk

Like a lot of comic fans in the early 1990s, I read the first few dozen issues of SPAWN comics, watched the animated series and suffered through the abhorrent live-action movie. But comic guy Todd McFarlane isn't quite done -- he's hellbent (ahem) on getting another SPAWN movie made.

Although while discussing his intended approach, it seems that McFarlane basically wants to make a SPAWN movie... without Spawn. This time, Spawn won't be a former CIA operative who returns from the netherworld with living chains, bad skin and a thirst for vengeance -- instead he'll be a completely silent, little-seen boogeyman in a bigger story: "I'm not going for Freddy Krueger horror and I'm not going for Spider-Man action superhero," McFarlane reveals. Or doesn't. "I'm not even going for a guy who's going to sit there and talk. You're never actually ever going to see him in his cape or costume in any kind of direct light. It's just going to be this thing that's just going to come, and if it's there then buddy, you're going to have a bad day."

Hmmm. McFarlane (who plans to write, direct, produce and independently finance the project) calls his planned film a "reboot" and also makes a number of other questionable statements, including an uncomfortable number of comparisons to JAWS. Read the whole interview RIGHT HERE!

Thanks to 'Shaun N.' for the heads up!
Extra Tidbit: SPAWN director Mark A.Z. Dippé’s follow-up FRANKENFISH was a surprisingly fun low-budget monster schlock most notable for its quality carnage, special effects work and a delectable bikini-clad China Chow.
