Trivia & Production Notes
- In August 1997, New Line Cinema released a Spawn movie that grossed $87.8 million worldwide. It starred Michael Jai White, John Leguizamo and Martin Sheen.
- As McFarlane also explained, "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 (8/23/13)."
- Blumhouse Productions is envisioning the new Spawn endeavor as a low-budget horror movie (Hollywood Reporter, 7/23/17).
- With casting in place, "Seth McFarlane said the next step will be to lock a distributor to set the financing on a film that will likely carry a $10 million-$12 million budget, an R rating, and franchise potential (Deadline, 7/9/18)."
