SPAWN Reboot Could Shoot Early Next Year, Says Creator Todd McFarlane | Collider
The Gate reportsspawn-first-issue (via Heat Vision) that McFarlane is busy trying to tie up loose ends in his planned Spawn reboot in order to get the picture off the ground starting some time next year. He’s been teasing this for a number of years now. Why the delay, you ask?
“The thing that keeps slowing it down is that the negotiation I’ve done is I write, produce, direct, but I’ve got to push a lot of my other endeavors off to the side so I can just get tunnel vision on it. Everybody at my company is now going, ‘We’ve got to find Todd the time to finish all this.’”
Although this would likely slate the film for a release in the crowded movie market of 2015, McFarlane has a different take on Spawn that would distance it, wisely or not, from the superhero market:
“I think it’s a quick shoot. It’s not going to be a giant budget with a lot of special effects, it’s going to be more of a horror movie and a thriller movie, not a superhero one. I’ve got so many people phoning now that I’ve got to get it done. I’ve made some promises to people this year.”
As for casting, I certainly have some dream actors I’d like to see take on the mantle of Al Simmons/Spawn (as do most fans, I presume), but McFarlane hasn’t confirmed any specifics:
“We’ve had some big names […] come into the office and go, ‘We want to be in it.’ Sometimes they give me their pitch, I give them my pitch, I go, ‘We can get in it, this is how it goes,’ and so those types of actors–Academy Award guys–they’re going, ‘As soon as that scripts done, we’re going.’ So once we get this thing done, we’ll get it off the ground with some big names.”
So where are we at, exactly?
“[The producers] want me to deliver the script by the end of the year, which would basically mean we’d be shooting next year. So, that’s the goal right now.”
If you haven't seen Kick Ass 2, I'd go catch it...matinee-style at the cheap theater. I liked it...plenty of gratuitous violence and sexual innuendo (with a smattering of toplessness). We were two of about 10 people in the theater, including a young couple who brought their little boy who couldn't have been more than four. I keep saying out-loud, "Glad you brought your little kid!" every time something highly inappropriate would happen on-screen. What kinds of morans??
Mintz-Platz is pretty damned hilarious as the super-villain, The Mother****er ("You sure you wanna call yourself that, Chris?"). Leguizamo and Carrey didn't annoy me as they usually do.
It was like Nerd Wars Part 2. We liked the second installment of the franchise as much as the first.
The even ****tier thing about it is that Lobo has ALREADY appeared in New 52 DC, and they're apparently saying that wasn't him now, it was an imposter.
What the hell is wrong with these dip****s?
and I STILL AMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!@! Don't f with the main main ya bastiches!!!!!!!!!!~
