Spawn, the comic book anti-hero from Hell, is getting another shot at the big screen. Creator Todd McFarlane announced this weekend that he has signed a deal with Blumhouse Productions, the company behind movies like Get Out, Split, and The Purge, to create a new Spawn movie.

There's no attached talent, but McFarlane has developed a script and is attached to direct. This will be McFarlane's first time in the director's chair for a feature-length film, though he's lent his talents to music videos in the past.

Don't expect big-budget special effects fare like the last film. Blumhouse is known for producing modest-budget thrillers, and that's exactly what McFarlane wants. Speaking to Collider, he said this new version will be "a dark, edgy, supernatural thriller, R-rated movie" that has more in common with a horror film than a standard superhero flick.

According to McFarlane, Spawn himself would likely take a backseat to detective Max 'Twitch' Williams - McFarlane compared the situation to the movie Jaws, saying that Spawn is more like the shark than the main character. It's not clear if the movie will have any tie-in with the upcoming Sam & Twitch television series coming to BBC America from executive producer Kevin Smith, though the characters live in the same comic book universe.

I enjoyed the animated series but the original movie was TERRIBLE. I've tried twice now to get through it on Netflix and am still only half way through it. I like TM concept of leaving Spawn in the background (probably budget constraints). Fingers crossed they get it right this time.

It had many flaws, yes, but I loved John Leguizamo. His farting demon cracked me up... :roflmao:
I can be a real simpleton when it comes to my entertainment sometimes. :lol:

I agree that Clown was the best character in it. I think he was the only redeemable thing in the movie.
