Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has begun work on the screenplay for the character’s next film outing.
The acclaimed comic book writer and artist revealed that the proposed movie will be a stand-alone story, geared towards a mature audience.
“The story has been in my head for seven or right years. The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a standalone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary,” he said. “The tone of this Spawn movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film The Departed.”
McFarlane recently expressed his desire to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as the lead in the new film.
