Comic creator Todd McFarlane is all set to reboot Spawn, which was announced way back in July 2017. Even though the film will be R-rated just like Deadpool and Logan, the director confirmed that the film will not be anything like them.
Todd McFarlane, who will be directing Spawn for Blumhouse will ensure that this superhero low-budget film will be significantly different from both Deadpool and Logan. Speaking at the ACE Comic-Con, McFarlane said:
“It’s funny in Hollywood, if you say you want to do an R-rated movie, they go like ‘Oh like Deadpool or Logan?’ For me, no. To me, Deadpool was the PG-13 action movie, it just had some naked butts and a couple of f-bombs. Other than that, I thought it was the same PG-13 formula.”
Elaborating about the R-rated film, the filmmaker further added:
“When I’m talking R, I’m talking that there wouldn’t be a lot of fun, there won’t be any stupid lines in it. I never like my hero to make a joke right when the jeopardy was at its highest. If I felt that my hero wasn’t afraid right now, why should I be? I want my heroes to go ‘S**t, where do I go now? Here’s what I do know. It should be impossible for anybody to go to the movie and say ‘I’m disappointed, I thought it was a superhero movie.’ Because there’s this thing called the internet and TV and you’ll see the trailer and there will be nothing in the trailer that will say that this is a superhero movie.”
Providing an insight into the reboot, McFarlane went on:
“It’s just going to be a dark, nasty R-rated, scary, creepy, messed up movie. Now why?” McFarlane said. “If you were a ten-year-old and you bought Spawn #1, it’s 25 years later and you’re 35. You’re an adult and I just think my audience has grown up with me.”
Spawn is scheduled to release sometime in 2019. No other details of the cast is known as yet.
