Spawn, the movie based on Todd McFarlane’s comic book character, is adding a couple of new writers from other popular movies to enhance the creative team. This addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still on the way, but the version we see will be a brand-new vision.
As reported by Hollywood Reporter, Joker’s Scotte Silver, Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Malcolm Spellman, Matt Mixon are set to join the film’s creative team for the feature which has been in development since 2017.
The trio are said to be penning a new script rather than reworking the existing draft written by Tucker with McFarlane himself reportedly set to direct as well as produce the film alongside Jason Blum from Blumhouse Productions.
However, the comic book writer has acknowledged that he may not be the best person to direct this film given that some of the best writers are involved.
“If we’ve got an A-list actor, A-list producers, A-list writers, then do you want to shoot for A-list directors, A-list cinematographers?” McFarlane tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The answer is, ‘of course.’ Let’s keep the momentum going.”
Silver and Spellman have both done extremely well writing for comic book-based movies in the past, and hence, it will be interesting to see if they continue their momentum as they start working on the new script for Spawn.
