“Spawn” Follow-up talk


Todd McFarlane has been speaking out to MTV on the status of a “Spawn” follow up (depending on whether you want to call it a reboot or a sequel), and as is often the case – he’s not thrilled with the studios:

Well you know, nobody wanted to give [Mel Gibson] the money, so he went out and did it. [So] it’s like, “Fine, I’ve got an idea, I want to do it and nobody wants to fund it. Well, don’t worry. Stop hurting yourself, guys. I’ll go and do it myself, but I don’t want to f—ing hear you bitching when I’m sitting there and I got the money. And you better hope this thing doesn’t work as well as I think it’s going to work, because these are the moments where you don’t like neurotic artists being independent of your system. So we’ll just rock on, and if it doesn’t work, so what? But I’m telling you, it’s going to work, guys.”

Todd has been trying to get his own non-watered-down version of “Spawn” up on the screen since the original, so it seems as though his idea of going the indie route instead may be working more to his advantage – it’ll be interesting to see how it pans out.
