Todd McFarlane has finished a new script for Spawn and he wants to direct
Now that DEADPOOL is bringing in some serious box-office dollars with it's R-rated goodness, you can bet that studios will be looking at some more off-the-wall comic book characters to bring to the silver screen. In this case, it's one of the comic creators. Todd McFarlane brought the character Spawn to comics in the early 90s, and after one failed attempt to transition him to the cinematic medium, he's trying to give it another shot. ComicBook.com recently spoke with the man, and you can see what he had to say below.
Todd McFarlane on the latest script for SPAWN:
I've finished the script and I'm in the process of editing. It's 183 pages, and [producers] usually like 120. I still think it's going to end up being about 140, because I'm putting in details for myself. " want to keep it small, keep it tight, so they'll let me direct it! I need to get him back up on the big screen again to make him relevant in a big way, which we will do.
While I wouldn't consider myself a comic book aficionado, I did read my fair share of Spawn growing up and would love to see a serious cinematic adaptation. With that said, I'm a little wary of McFarlane himself doing the writing, let alone directing. This also isn't the first time we've heard about another SPAWN movie in the works, so as they say, I'll believe it when I see it.
