It’s been twenty years since antihero Spawn graced movie screens (well, for a definition of the term “graced”), but now he’s heading back! Courtesy of creator Todd McFarlane and Blumhouse Productions.
McFarlane announced the project today on Facebook, letting fans know that the movie is officially moving forward, after hints and talks about the project in recent months. Blumhouse Productions already has a stable of films that fit right in with Spawn horrific aesthetic, from Get Out to Split to The Purge film series, so Spawn seems like a no-brainer for their books.
McFarlane is clearly ready to get to work: “We’ve gone from the theoretical to now we’re making movies. Blumhouse. Spawn. Badass. R. Get ready for it, we’re going into production. No more talking, it’s time to do.”
No word on who will be playing the eponymous main character or when production will begin, but we can expect to hear much more down the road.
