News Todd McFarlane Confirms New ‘Spawn’ Film Has Officially Begun Casting Published 9 months ago on January 17, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Todd McFarlane‘s new Spawn flick is finally making some progress, and today we have some very good news for you, as the first casting for the dark, R-Rated horror project has officially begun. The folks over at ComicBook.com recently caught up with McFarlane for an update on the roject. The best part is, this flick is actually happening “We just officially the other day had our first casting meeting, and so what that means for anyone listening today is with the final script we’re going to start sending that into Hollywood to actually go pick up the cast members,” McFarlane told the site. He continued, “So what you do during those first couple of meetings is go through all the characters and then sort of throw some names and bat some names around for people you think might fit it. More specifically, are there actors or characters you’ve seen in other movies that you think fall into that pool, because all of that gives the casting director a picture so that they can go ‘oh, okay, I know who to go after now that we’re doing it.’ So we’ve officially begun the casting process.” McFarlane revealed last week that Spawn himself isn’t the Lead character, and he won’t speak. The lead role is a cop, like Sheriff Brody. The Spawn creator has joined forces with Blumhouse, who will be producing his live-action screenplay adaptation that will bring the iconic character back to the big screen. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more Spawn updates to come.
