Todd McFarlane and producing partner Jason Blum have been working on bringing Spawn back to the big screen for some time. The movie continues to develop with a hope of shooting sometime in 2021.
“The script has got to be right” said Blum. “There is a real desire [for the movie], you have Jamie Foxx, and Spawn, and Todd McFarlane, and like, ‘You’ve just gotta make the movie!'”
“I think probably I’ve frustrated Todd a little bit, and I’ve just said, like, we don’t just have to make the movie, you know we have to make the right movie, with the right script. And it’s a hard script to get right – and, you know, the recent events in the United States around race have made it even harder to get it right. You’ve got to do it really carefully and thoughtfully.”
“So, we’re going to make the movie, definitely. I don’t know when we are going to make the movie. We are actually kind of re-tackling… we’re going down a different direction with the story than we had in the past, but we are not going to make the movie until that script is great. But one of these days it will be great and we will make it.”
Spawn is currently in development with no scheduled release date. Jamie Foxx is currently set to take on the lead role.
