News Todd McFarlane’s New R-Rated ‘Spawn’ Film Will Begin Filming in February Published 3 years ago on October 5, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Back in July, Dark Universe learned that Spawn creator and comic book artist Todd McFarlane had joined forces with Blumhouse, who will be producing his live-action screenplay adaptation that will bring the iconic character back to the big screen. Deadline is reporting today that Todd McFarland’s upcoming R-Rated Spawn flick will go into pre-production after Christmas for a February 2018 production start. “It’s going to be dark,” McFarlane said. “I will have a shark in black water,” he said metaphorically, “and if you’re swimming he will come and you’ll be gone and he will f*ck you up.” McFarlane continues, “I’m spending my own money so who cares if it doesn’t work out. It’s a $10 million budget movie, and (a studio) would just get a 22-year-old punk director. I just want to be the old punk directing it.” McFarlane wrote the script and is also directing the film, which he promises will be scary.
