Todd McFarlane gives an update about his SPAWN movie.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Todd McFarlane‘s SPAWN movie is slowly moving along. As NYCC is kicking off, McFarlane gave an update on his Facebook page. Scott Silver, Malcolm Spellman, and Matt Mixon are joining the writing team for the feature film. The Blumhouse superhero film should go into production sometime next year. Silver is best known for writing Joker and 8-Mile. He is also writing the script for Joker 2. Additionally, Spellman was the writer behind Disney+’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He is also penning Captain America 4.
“I grew up in Berkeley, which is a comic book city. Todd McFarlane’s SPAWN character was always one of my favorites — a Black superhero that was no bullshit, he was cool and dealt with modern issues,” says Spellman in a statement. “Myself, Matt Mixon, and Scott Silver are pledged to honoring what Todd started and what SPAWN is at its core, delivering something that’s relevant and edgy and unlike any other superhero movie out there.”Malcolm Spellman via Hollywood Reporter
