Blumhouse's Spawn reboot has begun casting

Last week we let you guys know that first-time director and SPAWN creator Todd McFarlane's upcoming hard-R reboot from Blumhouse is going to feature "true trauma" and be "as serious as possible."

Today we have the news via ComicBook.com that casting has officially begun of Blumhouse's SPAWN. Todd MacFarlane recently spoke with about the process with the site and let slip some interesting tidbits.

Todd MacFarlane on casting SPAWN:

We just officially the other day had our first casting meeting, and so what that means for anyone listening today is with the final script we're going to start sending that into Hollywood to actually go pick up the cast members.

So what you do during those first couple of meetings is go through all the characters and then sort of throw some names and bat some names around for people you think might fit it. More specifically, are there actors or characters you've seen in other movies that you think fall into that pool, because all of that gives the casting director a picture so that they can go 'oh, okay, I know who to go after now that we're doing it.' So we've officially begun the casting process.

Personally, I don't think this movie that needs a big star. Especially playing Spawn. I can only hope they go for quality over name recognition as the Spawn title itself should be enough of a box-office draw.

That said, who would you like to see cast as Spawn and/or Twitch in the upcoming SPAWN reboot? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!
