Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane in a recent interview with Nerdist, gave fans some insight into what we can expect of his next incarnation of Spawn, on the big screen. McFarlane, says we can expect his film to be devoid of “Joy” or “Fun lines.” Stating:
“There’s no joy… There’s gonna be no fun lines in it.”
McFarlane wants Spawn to be a pure horror film. He went on further to say:
“It’s just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie.
McFarlane believes dark, gritty and devoid of humor is the recipe for most supernatural/horror films. He plans to distance himself from the typical Hollywood formula of “superhero/Avengers” style films and make something new featuring the hellish anti-hero.
‘Spawn’ is set to begin filming this summer and will star Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner.
