Website My DVD Insider caught up with comic artists legend Todd McFarlane, who was very open when talking about his plans for an R-rated Spawn reboot. After jokingly acknowledging that “Spawn” fans of the ’90s are now old enough to see an R-rated film, he updated the status of the screenplay:
“I’m three quarters through it,” he explains. “I’ll finish it and put it on a shelf for about a week. What usually happens is, I come back to it so I can see all the flaws. I do a rewrite and there’s a first draft at that point.”
Speaking on studio interest, McFarlane is iron first on his demands: he will only make it if he can write, produce, direct (probably so Spawn doesn’t end up with a nose, again).
“[A few studios have phoned me to talk about the project] and when I walk into these pitch meetings, I go here’s the story. I give them the broad strokes. Then I go, here’s the non-negotiable part: I write, produce, direct. That’s it,” he states adding that it WILL be low budget, therefore he might as well be the “schmuck” who directs it.
Lastly, on the plot: “In this new version, there are no supervillains, archenemies or any of that. It’s just a spook movie, something scary going bump in the night.“
