Todd McFarlane Set To Direct and Write New SPAWN Movie From Blumhouse Productions

It’s been teased and talked about for years by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, but it’s finally a reality. Spawn is on track back to the big screen from Blumhouse Productions with MacFarlane set to make his directorial debut in addition to penning the screenplay.

Jason Blum’s studio specializes in low budget genre films that have consistently turned over hefty profits, including Get Out, Split and The Purge series. Spawn may very well be the most expenxive venture for Blumhouse, but will likely still not cost a fraction of what other superhero films do.

“Having worked with many visionary directors, I think Todd’s unique artistic talents will only add to his role as director of this film,” Jason Blum told The Wrap in a statement.

From McFarlane’s FB page following a panel discussion with Kevin Smith at San Diego Comic-Con:

Created by McFarlane for Image Comics in 1992, Spawn was previously adapted from the comic book world to the big screen 20 years ago via New Line’s 1997 film that starred Michael Jai White as the popular supernatural anti-hero.
