News Todd McFarlane Reveals That His ‘Spawn’ Horror Film Will Take Place in New York City Published 3 years ago on November 27, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet While we all patiently wait for Todd McFarlane‘s R-Rated Spawn flick to debut, we have another piece of news to bring you today regarding where the film is being set. In a recent chat with the guys over at Cinema Blend, McFarlane revealed: “There are different places that give incentives for you to come and shoot the movies there. So, we’re going to be looking at all those given that, you know we’re not going to have a big budget, so we’re going to want to stretch it as far as we can, right. And so, but, at the same time given that this world takes place in New York, we’re going to have to be in a place that can be somewhat convincing at times, especially for some exterior shots… though my guess, I’ll probably have to do a couple pick up shots actually here in New York City, but you know, so, you’re looking at places like Detroit, and Cleveland and, I’m Canadian, Toronto.” McFarlane clearly has a vision in mind for the new Spawn, and we are totally on board for this. McFarlane is currently in the process of writing the film and will direct. McFarlane 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.
