We heard this rumor a while ago, but we decided not to post anything until the official announcement…well, it appears it is true. Yes, they are making, or remaking, a Spawn movie.
Spawn creator Todd McFarlane creator of the Spawn comic character, is partnering with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse to bring the antihero back to the big screen.
Published by Image Comics, Spawn follows elite CIA mercenary Al Simmons, who after being killed by his partner is sent to Hell because he was responsible for the death of several innocent people. Simmons makes a deal with an evil being known as Malebolgia for his soul, so he could see his wife again. However, Simmons is turned into a demonic creature and sent back to Earth.
The original movie was released in 1997 and we just wanted to refresh your memory with this dandy of a trailer.
McFarlane will pen the first draft of the screenplay and is set to make his directorial debut.
