Spawn - New Film Probably With R-Rating

Todd McFarlane Already Finished the Script

When the comic adaptation Spawn hit cinemas in 1997, the commercial success was just as mediocre as the reception by critics and fans. And that despite its ingredients for a trashy film evening. What probably didn't help either was the fact that it was released in theaters with a PG-13 rating. The eventual Director's Cut was more violent and longer but didn't improve the film considerably (see comparison).

Since then, there have been plans to bring the character to the big screen once more and now it finally seems to happen. Todd McFarlane has completed the script and says that it's in "hard R" territory.

I’d put it more into the horror/suspense/supernatural genre. If you take the movie The Departed meets Paranormal Activity, something like that…In the background, there’s this thing moving around, this boogeyman. That boogeyman just happens to be something that you and I, intellectually, know is Spawn. Will he look like he did in the first movie? No. Will he have a supervillain he fights? No. He’s going to be the specter, the ghost.

Still, it'll probably take some time until the new Spawn movie hits cinemas and we'll see if the studio will follow McFarlane's vision.
