McFarlane writing Spawn movie

No, you haven't been magically whisked away to 1997. The year is 2009. So fear not for lost time. What you should fear is the story for a new Spawn movie. A story that Coming Soon reports Todd McFarlane starting at this very moment. "The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years," McFarlane said. "The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a standalone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary." The movie is said to be for more older audiences, so hopefully we get a solid R rating on this badboy. And it's the latest in a long line of reboots, but for Spawn I have high hopes. The first Spawn film that came out over a decade ago really wasn't too bad. Sure it was mainly a capitalization on the success of Spawn at the time. And it tried to catapult comic book adaptations into a more respected film category (as in the respected category). Unfortunately, it didn't quite make it, mostly because of the technology at the time. See, Spawn is a movie that screams CGI. McFarlane even said at the Image United panel at Comic-Con that he loves the idea of revisiting a Spawn movie with today's CGI technology. And with a much more violent and mature story the new movie can be a huge success, if for nothing else but a sort of nostalgia factor. But if you get the right director and actor, this film could be great. McFarlane writing Spawn movie
