Todd McFarlane announces Spawn movie filming in February 2018


Today at New York Comic Con, Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn, announced he will be the director of the upcoming feature film, Spawn, which will begin production in February of 2018. He pledged at New York Comic Con to also post daily Facebook updates during the filming of the set.

According to Deadline, he also promised “It’s going to be dark” which should be a bit better than the more comedic 1997 predecessor. McFarlane wrote the script as well and stated he would be making the film with a budget of only 10 million dollars. When asked by an audience member why he’s so confident he can direct a movie, McFarlane responded, “I didn’t used to draw comic books and I drew comic books and I won awards. I don’t know how to read music and I have a Grammy Award.” He continued, “I’m spending my own money so who cares if it doesn’t work out. It’s a $10 million budget movie, and (a studio) would just get a 22-year-old punk director. I just want to be the old punk directing it.”

If that doesn’t describe this as a passion project for something that the fans want, I don’t know what does. Let’s see what Mcfarlane does with this new Spawn and if it will be an improvement upon the original film.
