Old news but since i haven't seen Spawn Movie Thread in Misc. Comics Films... Todd McFarlane says: In 2011... "Im three quarters through it. Ill finish it and put it on a shelf for about a week. What usually happens is, I come back to it so I can see all the flaws. I do a rewrite and theres a first draft at that point. Then Ill start soliciting comments from people I trust to see if I can get the script into working shape. If I cant, Im open to someone coming in and helping me with it." "Theres only one way a studio is going to say yes, thats if its a low-budget movie. To be honest, as a producer, even I wouldnt hire myself to direct a big-budget film," he admits. "There are smarter people out there. But if youre making it for $10 million to $12 million, youre just going to go get some schmuck director so let me be the schmuck." "In this new version, there are no supervillains, archenemies or any of that. Its just a spook movie, something scary going bump in the night. I think I can shoot that for almost next to nothing." In 2012... "People are still interested in it. An Academy Award winning actor came out to the offices and said, Todd, I want to be in it, so get that thing done. He calls me once a week going, lets go! Lets go! So well get that thing off the ground." "The main character isn't Spawn, per se, it's the guy chasing Spawn,"And I've always had Leonardo DiCaprio in the back of my mind." ""It's a big wish, but his dad was a big fan of underground comic books and he came from that," "It's not a big special-effects movie, it's a character movie, so I could shoot it in 40-50 days and you don't have to budget that much time.""We had Sam and Twitch in the book, but because of some of the stuff I'm trying to sell in Hollywood, we might have to change the characters a bit," 'Godfather'-type movie, something weird is out there and no one knows about it except him and a few other people." Wishful thinking or what?
