'SPAWN 2' MOVIE NEWS
And Tidbits on Other Entertainment Projects
March 8, 2002
The second full-length Spawn feature film took another significant step toward reality with the recent completion of the script by Todd McFarlane and Steve Niles. The script was approved by co-producer Don Murphy (From Hell, Natural Born Killers) and has been forwarded to executives at Columbia for their approval, which could come as soon as next week.
Todd and Steve have been hard at work in recent weeks, hammering out the script at a breakneck pace. Niles was in Phoenix working directly with Todd to complete what they hope is the script's final draft.
As spawn.com has reported for some time, the new film will be a radical departure from the original Spawn movie. It will have a more mature theme and likely an R rating. No hints on plot yet, but the script itself is very dark and entertaining. Stay tuned to spawn.com for more details as they become available.
In other entertainment news, Todd McFarlane Entertainment has been in discussions with two video game companies, one in Tokyo, the other in Melbourne, Australia. They are both interested in developing a Spawn PS2 game and an XBOX game. If the deals go through, we would hope to see a game on the shelf by fall 2003.
Also, in the last couple of weeks, two record companies contacted us, both interested in having Todd direct music videos for them. One artist was interested in some animation sequences, while the other wants Todd to direct a live action video. Stay tuned for updates.
