"Spawn" Returns In 2014

Sneak Peek footage of "Spawn" comic book creator/toy manufacturer Todd McFarlane, who has confirmed that a new "Spawn" feature film, adapting his popular Image comic book character, would be filming next year, in a different genre, other than as a 'superhero' comic book movie:

"...soldier 'Al Simmons', is killed and resurrected as 'Spawn', a reluctant, demonic leader of 'Hell's Army'. Spawn eventually refuses to war against 'Heaven' and turns against all evil forces..."

"The reality is I've got a lot of pressure," said McFarlane. "They (the studio) want me to deliver the script by the end of the year, which would basically mean we’d be shooting next year. So that's the goal right now."

"The thing that keeps slowing it down is that the negotiation I've done is that I write, produce, and direct. So I've got to push a lot of my other endeavors off to the side, so I can get tunnel vision on it, and so everybody in my company is now going, 'We’ve got to find Todd the time to finish all this.'

"I think it’s a sixty to seventy day shoot. I think it’s a quick shoot. It’s not going to be a giant budget with a lot of special effects. It's going to be more of a horror movie and a thriller movie, not a superhero one. Anyway, I've got so many people phoning now, I've got to get it done."
