'Spawn' reboot in the works

It looks like we are finally getting another "Spawn" movie.

Heat Vision is reporting that Todd McFarlane, the creator of "Spawn," has been given an ultimatum by the studio: finish the script by the end of this year or have the new movie never go into production.

Ok, maybe it isn't exactly that extreme, but he does have an end of the year deadline in order to get his baby, that he has reportedly been thinking about since the failed release of the first live-action film in 1997, into production next year.

I like the direction he is taking it in though. In an interview he said, "“I think it’s a quick shoot. It’s not going to be a giant budget with a lot of special effects, it’s going to be more of a horror movie and a thriller movie, not a superhero one. I've got so many people phoning now that I’ve got to get it done. I’ve made some promises to people this year.”

I like the idea of a smaller budget, and grounding it into a more realistic horror area.

I'm not sure or not, but I might be the only person that really loved Michael Jai White as Spawn in the original, and John Leguizamo as the crazy ass clown, but McFarlane has stated that he will be recasting, and some "big name talent" have been throwing their hats into the ring.
