SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt.2

Hello, Ladies and Gentelnerds and welcome to Prt. 2 of my special edition segment of “My Thoughts On..” Todays Topic? 

TODD MCFARLANE IS DIRECTING THE SPAWN REBOOT!…( Finally!)

Now.. When i had first heard word of this.. My eyes went straight up Undertaker on me

Like.. “Really?! He’s STILL talking about doing a reboot? And he wants to direct it?! IF it does happen, its gonna be like what…a 5 hour movie?” I had very little faith in the report when i first heard it. Very little faith in Todd’s ability as a director. I just saw it as another Comic Con of him saying “Im gonna do it. Its gonna be great. I have a 500 page script ready to go. Its gonna be great!” the same thing he has been saying for many years now..

BUT! Then i dug a little deeper in to the story. Turns out, Jason Blum 

founder and creator of BlumHouse Productions

The studio behind such films as..

And much more recent and highly acclaimed films such as..

WHIPLASH

SPLIT

GET OUT

Has joined with McFarlane to produce a R-Rated, modestly budgeted reboot of SPAWN! 

The last time Spawn was seen on the big screen was (as of now) 20 years ago with Micheal Jai White in the starring role 

With John Leguizamo co starring as The Clown/Violator 

It was.. 1996-97.. I recently rewatched it on Netflix. The CGI, does not hold up at all! 

Not in the slightest. The acting is.. C-grade at best. The action, is so-so. I was a kid when this came out and it will always hold a place in my heart. But it is time for an upgrade. 

Spawn did have a very successful run on HBO with 3 seasons of an Animated Series.

If the new film is even remotely close to the darkness of the series, then they just may have a real winner.

But what really caught my attention, and actiually made me jump on board with Todd and this Spawn reboot.. Was Todd himself.. 

When the announcement was madeb Todd spoke with Collider  Video and Steve ‘Frosty’ Wientraub. (Video link will be at the end of this article… Dont you DARE skip ahead!.. Im almost finished..)

His thoughts and views on where he wants to take this movie and this story. How he plans to approach it. And his explinations as to why it took so long.. It sold me. He got me on board with this movie. I hope it turns out great. 

HOWEVER! One thing that does concern me.. Todd stated that Sam and Twitch (mainly Sam) would feature heavily in the story. Which makes me wonder, what and how will this effect Kevin Smith’s ‘Sam and Twitch’ BBC Series? 

Will they be completley seperating the two? Will it be connected? Im just curious. 

What also excites me is, If this Spawn is successful. Blumhouse and Image could look in to an extended universe. Wicthblade? 

The Darkness? 

Hell! I want a fucking Haunt movie too!

So, here’s hoping Todd and Blumhouse are successful. Im excited. What do you folks think? Hit me up! 

Heres that video i promised..


Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
