Todd McFarlane announced today via his twitter that he has finally begun writing the Spawn movie he said:
MOVIE: I've officially begun writing the SPAWN MOVIE screenplay. The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years. Will continue to update.
I for one can't wait for this! Spawn began in 1992 as the Flag title for Image Comics. McFarlane co-founded Image with the likes of Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Eric Larson and a few others.
McFarlane also founded Todd Toys which would transform into McFarlane Toys which has grown into a gigantic world-wide empire in it's own right, setting the NEW standard for action figures! Spawn was also an animated hit on HBO in the late 90's.
At the time in 1997 Spawn set the record for the most CGI scenes in movie history! So get ready for the Return of Spawn in the movies! To read about McFarlane's movie idea fro Spawn CLICK HERE.
