New Spawn Movie on the Horizon?
Not only did Tempe, AZ win the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" premier, but it looks like they got a visit from Todd McFarlane as well.
Todd McFarlane made the trip from Pheonix, AZ to Tempe to be one of the lucky viewers of the Wolverine premier.
IESB caught up with the comic legend to get some dig on his latest projects.
Todd McFarlane tells us he has five offers on the table to do a new Spawn film. From big special effects studio budgets to a smaller indie budgets that he hopes to be able to write and direct himself. Which will he choose?
Will Spawn be resurrected at the box office to fight the forces of Hell, or will we just end up with another John Leguizamo in bad clown makeup?
From the video on IESB, McFarlane says:
"To where I'm leaning which is actually sort of a smaller budget. Just keep it down, keep it dark, Keep it grungy. I mean, I've got two teenage daughters, and I’m trying to come up with an idea that I've been living with for ten years, that would actually get them and their dates to go to it, and it's not a comic book movie, it's just a scary movie, a creepy movie. It happens to have… everythings real, except for one element which happens to be the character we know as Spawn. So it's not going to be a super villain verses a superhero or anything like that stuff. It's just gonna be a tight movie. Think of 'Departed' with something sort of moving in the shadows a little bit."
McFarlane specifies his preference for a smaller studio because that will give him more writing and producing control. He also goes on to say that all the rights regarding the HBO animated series will revert back to him at the end of the year. He expressed his desire to get another animated version of Spawn going using newer technologies.
Personally, I was never a fan of the comic book, nor the live action movie, but I did love the HBO animated series. The animation was phenomenal, and to think what he may do with new technology is just mouth-watering.
