Deadline
Quote:
He expects the budget to be between $10 million-$12 million for a dark R-rated realization of his vision that will stack up favorably from both a creative and financial standpoint.

He doesn’t intend to tell Spawn‘s origin story and he expects his anti-hero to be a man of few words.

“The scariest movies, from Jaws to John Carpenter’s The Thing, or The Grudge and The Ring, the boogeyman doesn’t talk,” McFarlane told Deadline, acknowledging that he’s gotten odd stares from studio suits in the past on this approach. “It confuses people because of the comic book industry, and because they all default into their Captain America mindset and I keep saying, no, get into John Carpenter’s mindset or Hitchcock. This is not a man in a rubber suit, it’s not a hero that’s going to come and save the damsel. It’s none of that. At the end of the movie, I’m hoping that the audience will say either, is this a ghost that turns into a man, or is it a man that turns into a ghost? I’ve got a trilogy in mind here, and I’m not inclined in this first movie to do an origin story. I’m mentally exhausted from origin stories. Luckily, there’s a movie that just came out that helps my cause. In A Quiet Place, the first thing on screen is a card in black and white letters that says Day 89. It doesn’t care about what happened in those first 88 days. There are a couple headlines, but then we are on day 450. That movie doesn’t worry about explaining and giving all the answers. What it said in that case was, if you can hang on for a story of survival of this family, this movie will make complete sense for you.”

McFarlane wants to challenge Spawn aficionados and newcomers in the same fashion. “If you want to see something creepy and powerful where you go, just what the hell was that? I’m not going to explain how Spawn does what he does; he is just going to do it. We’ll eventually do some of the background if we make a trilogy, but that’s not this first movie. The first movie is just saying, do you believe? And if you believe than that’s good because I’m hoping to take you for a long ride with this franchise.”

McFarlane expects the envelope-pushing take might turn his biggest fans into his most ferocious critics. If there’s a touchstone film to his approach, it’s Jacob’s Ladder, a film that left audiences questioning whether or not the action on the screen was real or a nightmare.

If Spawn doesn’t have much to say, then why Foxx, the Oscar-winner who delivered so many memorable lines in everything from Django Unchained to Collateral and Ray?

“There are five or six moments where I’m going to need things from my actors, and a couple of them have to come from Jamie, and I’ve seen him deliver them onscreen,” McFarlane said. “He gets into a zone, with body language and a look that basically will say way more than anything i could type on a piece of paper, and this movie is going to need those moments. And in the odd moment where he has to deliver a line that’s short, curt and has impact, he can do it in a way that makes you go, ‘Whoa, I don’t want to mess with that guy. What a badass.'”

McFarlane adds that Foxx was the actor in his mind when he wrote the script.

“Jamie came to my office five years ago, and he had an idea about Spawn and we talked about it,” McFarlane said. “I never forgot him, and when I was writing this script, you sort of plug people in, and he was my visual guy and I never let go of him. When I got done and my agents and everybody was talking about what actor, I said, I’m going to Jamie first and until he says no I don’t want to think about anyone else because I’ve never had anyone else in my head. Luckily, he hadn’t forgotten either. I said, ‘Hey, I’m back to talk about Spawn again, and he was like, let’s do it.'”

Colossal had a $15 million budget, and that was all it needed. $12 million isn't a joke when compared to that.

Yeah, for Blumhouse, $12 million is pushing their limits. They usually make movies under $10 million.

Possible positive side is that limited budget will spark creativity.

Happened to catch some of TASM2 the other day, couldnt sit through it all, and I was just thinking it was such a shame Jamie Foxx got wasted in a CBM in such a poor roll, this might be something far more suited to Foxx and a much better use of his talents.

The original Spawn wasnt exactly a classic so its got little to lose.

It is a joke. I'll consider that a miracle if they manage to fit into this budget without sacrificing artistic vision and still respecting the source imagery.

basically we won't see Spawn fighting any of his demonic enemies, only human mooks.

I'm down for this, I'm a kid a of the 90s so I wanna see a good Spawn movie. However, what gives me pause is McFarlane's approach. Not in the sense that I, myself will enjoy it, but that it'll land with wider audiences. Having your lead protagonist be a silent boogeyman is a cool idea but may not play well with general audiences if there isnt a character providing an emotional anchor for the audience to root for and empathize with.

This calls for a rewatch of the HBO animated series. Haven't done one in a while. Anyone not seen it, I HIGHLY recommend it.

Yeah it’s ****ing amazing. I really liked the original movie as a kid too. I rewatched it recently and it wasn’t really that bad at all. I can’t wait for this. If it’s a success, MacFarlane is saying we’ll get a trilogy.

This is why I have virtually no interest in this. A movie about Spawn that does not actually feature very much Spawn (pretty much the Sam and Twitch show), on a budget that will not allow for Spawn to actually be anything more than a guy (Foxx I guess) in a rubber suit with no special effects or even decent practical effects.

It doesn't need a large budget.

The 1997 version had $40 million... what's the excuse there?

I feel like just give us Clown/Violator, Overtkill, Jason Wynn and Malebolgia again and I'd be happy.

So slashing the budget by $30 million is going to somehow improve on it?
