SPAWN Creator Todd McFarlane Hints That Planned Casting Addition "Will Blow Up The Internet"

According to Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, he's currently trying to bag a huge talent for his planned big screen adaptation of the beloved comic book series. They may even end up breaking the internet...

Hollywood is currently on shutdown, but Todd McFarlane remains hard at work in his big screen reboot of Spawn. The movie currently has Jamie Foxx attached to star as the title character, while Avengers: Endgame's Jeremy Renner has signed up to play Detective Twitch. Now, though, it sounds like the comic book writer and artist has big plans for another A-List talent. 

"About a month ago, I had a big fish. I just about got him on deck, right?" McFarlane told ComicBook.com during a recent interview. "But we lost him and those are always frustrating because whenever you got the fish out of the water, pull them up on deck and the line breaks."

"We got an offer out to, I think, a bigger fish. So, there weren't too many bigger than the first guy, but anyway, we'll see. If I could've got the last guy, it would've been a home run. If I can get this guy, it will be a grand slam. This one will blow up the Internet. So, we'll see," he teased.

McFarlane (who plans on directing this new Spawn movie), has already enlisted The Walking Dead special makeup effects master Greg Nicotero, as well as "a couple of [directors of photography] that have won [awards]." Blumhouse's Jason Blum, meanwhile, is also backing the upcoming project. 

It's certainly going to be interesting seeing how Spawn comes together, but it's likely to have been put on hold for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. McFarlane clearly has big plans, though, and is pulling out all the stops to deliver a movie fans of the comic books will appreciate.
