It’s been a long wait–and it ain’t over yet.
Back in June, Jason Blum–producer of the long-delayed Spawn reboot–said the film was “in active development” and expressed optimism about progress, despite the writers’ strike. “My prediction,” Blum said then, “is we’ll see a Spawn movie in 2025. No promises, but that’s my prediction.”
This week–with the strike in everyone’s rearview mirror–Blum doubled-down on his prediction to comicbook.com. “2025 is when Spawn is going to come out,” he said. “I stand by that.”
The film’s screenwriters–Scott Silver, Malcolm Spellman and Matt Mixon–presumably are back at work now, and star Jamie Foxx is still attached to the Blumhouse remake. But one key piece remains unknown: the director. Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has taken himself out of that equation, so stay tuned for news in that area.
The original 1997 Spawn–directed by Mark A.Z. Dippe from a screenplay by Alan B. McElroy–stars Michael Jai White as the Image Comics anti-hero. The film follows the murdered Lt. Col. Al Simmons, who is resurrected as Spawn–the reluctant leader of Hell’s legions.
