News Todd McFarlane is Determined to Make His Troubled R-Rated ‘Spawn’ Movie Published 6 months ago on July 22, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Word has been circulating around various sources that Blumhouse and Todd McFarlane‘s R-Rated Spawn flick may be in a bit of financial trouble. According to the creator, $20 million is needed to get the movie made. RELATED: TODD MCFARLANE SAYS ‘SPAWN’ WILL BE A DARK AND UGLY HORROR MOVIE At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, McFarlane revealed: “I need $20 million to make this movie, I don’t have all of it. I have to ask people for money, and once you ask people for money, they get to have a say in it. Like I said, it’s a little bit of an uphill battle, because again, I just want to do this little dark ‘R’ movie, and they like those PG-13 success movies.” On using Kickstarter to raise the $20 million: “Look I am relentless, I’m like a dog with a bone. I will get there, I promise you. I will get there. Because I will beat the system. Here’s what I’ll do: I’ll do it as a Kickstarter… and here’s the Kickstarter: I need 20 million people to give me a dollar. And I will make this movie, and when I get the money back I’ll return the dollar back to you. And you will be my producers… and all I’ll need is the distribution.” Finishing with: “… there are people on the outside that want to give me money that aren’t in the system. But we’re going to get it done. I’m just trying to play nice, now, but I’m starting to lose my patience. But we’ll try; it’s going to get there one way or another, I promise you. I’m not going to let this one go.” Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) has been cast as Al Simmon’s, our hellish superhero known as Spawn. Joining Foxx is Jeremy Renner (28 Weeks Later), who will play homicide detective Maximilian “Twitch” Williams. We will keep you posted on the progress of McFarlane’s new Spawn project.
