Comic book creator Todd McFarlane says new Spawn big screen outing could go into production next year

It received a critically panned adaptation in 1997 starring Michael Jai White, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has said that a new adaptation of his Image Comics series could go into production as early as next year.

Speaking to The Gate, McFarlane explained that the new film would be more of a horror than a superhero outing revealing "The thing that keeps slowing it down is that the negotiation I've done is I write, produce, direct, but I've got to push a lot of my other endeavours off to the side so I can just get tunnel vision on it, and so everybody at my company is now going, 'We've got to find Todd the time to finish all this'.

It's not going to be a giant budget with a lot of special effects, it's going to be more of a horror movie and a thriller movie, not a superhero one."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain Jamie Foxx is "aggressively pursuing" the title role in the new film.
