Creator Todd McFarlane has officially begun writing the new Spawn film, the second live-action adaptation of his record breaking Image comic book from the early 90′s. “I’ve officially begun writing the SPAWN MOVIE screenplay,” he writes on his Twitter. “The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years. Will continue to update,” he promises. “The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a stand alone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary,” adding, “the tone of this SPAWN movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film DEPARTED.” There you have it, straight from the horses mouth. Thank God for Twitter.
