Todd McFarlane wants Hollywood to get it through their heads that his Spawn reboot is a hard R scary film and not a superhero movie. “If you think about it as a horror
it makes complete sense. if you think about it as Captain America it falls apart,” McFarlane told IGN during an interview Saturday at New York Comic Con.
McFarlane is writing, producing and directing Spawn, which also has Get Out and Halloween’s Jason Blum aboard as a producer and The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero designing the creature costume for the title character. The film has cast Oscar winner Jamie Foxx in the title role opposite Jeremy Renner. McFarlane vented his frustration with Hollywood execs who he claims have had trouble getting what his Spawn script is going for.
