Todd McFarlane Is In Denial


Todd McFarlane recently told IESB he has plans to make another Spawn movie. I’m sure he does, although I’m not sure if reality shares his plans.

“Right now I literally have five offers on the table, everything from
the big studios… to more where I’m leaning, which is more of a smaller
budget – just keep it down, keep it dark, keep it grungy – I mean, I’ve
got two teenage daughters, and I’m trying to come up with an idea that
would get them and their dates to go to it. And it’s not a comic book
movie, it’s just a scary movie, a creepy movie.  …Think The Departed, but with something moving in the shadows.

What’s more pitiful here? That McFarlane thinks he get a Spawn movie made 12 years after the original opened to crap reviews and mediocre box office? That he believes anyone wants a Spawn movie besides himsef? Or that he’s (or anyone, for that matter) could create a Spawn movie at the level of Martin Scorsese’s The Departed? Eeesh. (Via FilmDrunk)
