McFarlane has been working on the movie script for a while (see "ICv2 Interview: Todd McFarlane") and announced a rough draft was done in May. He has been teasing a big announcement on his social media leading up to San Diego Comic-Con, and finally announced the deal with Blumhouse as the production company today. McFarlane, who appeared with his friend, director Kevin Smith, praised Blumhouse’s production work on popular films including The Purge, Insidious, Paranormal Activity, Split, and Get Out during the announcement. McFarlane’s own McFarlane Films will co-produce. The film will be rated R.
Deadline also reported a statement from Blum on the announcement, "Having worked with many visionary directors, I think Todd’s unique artistic talents will only add to his role as director of this film."
The original Spawn movie was released in 1997 by New Line. The film made $54.9M at the U.S. box office, and $87.8M worldwide, with a $40M production cost.
