'Broken City' Scribe To Write New 'Spawn' Movie


Recommended Posts

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Spawn movie is back on track as Brian Tucker has been hired to write the script for the feature project.

Todd McFarlane, the creator of the comic and character, is attached as a director with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions behind the feature.  Blum and McFarlane are producing. Carla Hacken is executive producing.

McFarlane wrote the initial script which Jamie Foxx became attached to star as the titular character and Jeremy Renner as a detective nicknamed Twitch. However, this was back in 2017 and it's unclear if Foxx and Renner are still on board with the project.  Both actors will be re-approached once the new script is written.

Spawn is centered on a black-ops agent who is betrayed and murdered and his soul sent to hell for all the innocents he killed. While there, he makes a deal with a demon who allows him to return to the earthly plane and his wife. However, five years have now passed, and his wife has moved on, while he is a disfigured and superpowered spawn of hell.

Tucker is credited with writing the 2013 crime thriller Broken City and writing the remake of The Fugitive for Warner Bros.

Okay, cool more news, but I still am not even feeling confident about this one, the last one with Jamie Foxx, well that never came out, Todd's been talking about doing this since I don't remember, because I remember him announcing the new Spawn movie at Fan Expo, nothing has come to fruition still just more waiting and promising..
