SPAWN Director Todd McFarlane Cites Creative Differences As Reason For The Adaptation's Long Development

While the news regarding Todd McFarlane's Spawn has been received well by fans, it has been a while since we've had any updates on the project from Blumhouse. This is leaving many to wonder why . . .

In 1997, Spawn, starring Michael Jai White, disturbed creator Todd McFarlane to the extent that he had to tackle the next live-action interpretation himself. With the script now finished, and an exciting cast already set for shooting, it seems as though creative differences are preventing the film from heading into principal photography.

Jason Blum and Blumhouse, the studio behind Halloween, have had problems coming to an agreement behind the scenes. While many Blumhouse productions are quick to develop, Spawn has proved itself to be a harder property to adapt altogether.

Here's what director McFarlane had to say about its development thus far, and while coming to terms is very possible, fans will just have to wait it out:

The money's sitting on the sidelines ready to go. I just need to get everyone that wants to put in money to shake their heads to the same script. As you can imagine, everyone has a slightly different version of it in their head. You just go and trying to appease a handful of people while not giving in to what it is that I'm trying to do myself. Because if I have to change it too much, I'll just walk away from it all.

Are you looking forward to the Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner-starring adaptation of Spawn?
