Speaking to Comicbook.com at this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, Todd McFarlane offered an extensive update on his long-in-the-works plans to adapt his comic book anti-hero Spawn for the big screen. First, an update on the script:

I’ve finished the script, and I’m in the process of editing. It’s 183 pages, and [producers] usually like 120. I still think it’s going to end up being about 140, because I’m putting in details for myself.

And then, how the movie will approach Spawn himself:

I’d put it more into horror/suspense/supernatural genre. If you take the movie The Departed meets Paranormal Activity, something like that.
In the background, there’s this thing moving around, this boogeyman. That boogeyman just happens to be something that you and I, intellectually, know is Spawn. Will he look like he did in the first movie? No. Will he have a supervillain he fights? No. He’s going to be the spectre, the ghost.
I think they all work because there’s only one thing in the movie that’s not normal. There’s not five things, there’s one thing that’s the boogeyman. So that’ll be Spawn. He’s this thing that just whooshes in, this ghost that moves and will fuck you up if you’re in the wrong place in the wrong time, and the rest of the movie will look real, and be this real drama. He’s just this ghost, this thing behind it.

So he's finally working on/finished on a script and the world in getting excited to see what will be next for the Spawn.

What direction would you like to see Spawn take?
