News Todd McFarlane Promises ‘Spawn’ Will Be a Dark and Ugly Horror Movie Published 1 year ago on January 6, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet It’s been a couple of months since we reported that special make-up effects Greg Nicotero and KNB jumped on board to create the titular character design for Todd McFarlane new R-Rated Spawn horror movie. What can we expect from this new version of Spawn? According to McFarlane, it’s going to be one very dark and ugly movie. Here’s a snippet of what he had to say about his directorial debut in an interview with the folks over at Nerdist website. “There’s no joy,” McFarlane told the site. “There’s gonna be no fun lines in it, and it’s just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie, which is essentially what a lot of supernatural/horror movies are anyway. There’s not a lot of funny in them. And that seems to be a weird hurdle for a lot of people in this city to get over because they sort of go into a superhero/Avengers default all the time.” 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. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more updates on the new Spawn film in the coming weeks/months.
