‘Spawn’ reboot: Todd MacFarlane promises a ‘dark, R-rated, scary’ movie

Spawn lovers have been clamoring for more ever since the movie first came out in 1997. Now creator Todd McFarlane is giving fans some insight into what the can expect the next time Al Simmons is on screen.

In an interview with the AMC series Geeking Out, MacFarlane explains that the next version isn”t going to be your parents' Spawn.

“It”s going to be a dark, R-rated, scary, badass sort of script,” MacFarlane said. “It”s not a nice, polite PG-13 with ray guns…The world's going to be real, except for one thing that's going to move.”

He goes on to say that this isn”t going to be a overdue Part 2. “It”s not going to be a continuation. It”s not going to be a sequel. It”s not going to be any of that.  Scrub the first movie. It was 20 years ago,” MacFarlane notes.

Discussion of a next Spawn (or dare I say, spawn of Spawn), has been going on for the better part of 20 years. As far back as 1998, Michael Jai White, who played the main character, talked optimistically about the future of the franchise. Then in 2007, MacFarlane went so far as to say he”d finance the project. As we know, neither of those came to pass. But in a March 2016 Facebook post, MacFarlane seemed convinced this next version of Spawn was a done deal.

Let”s wait and see. Until then, click here to check out the video…
