Producer Jason Blum says Spawn reboot will be “very edgy” but the script is taking longer than expected

Todd McFarlane’s long-gestating Spawn reboot has been stuck in development hell for years, and now, producer Jason Blum has offered an update on the project which seems like it is still no closer to entering production.

In an interview with Inverse, Blum revealed that the Spawn reboot will be “very edgy” but cracking the script is still taking longer than they originally expected.

“It’s gonna be very different, it’s gonna be very edgy,” Blum said. “What excited me about it is that Spawn is kind of the last great unexploited comic. So that seemed like an amazing opportunity. It’s taken longer than I hoped it would have to get the story right, but we’re still working on it.”

Blum’s comments resemble a statement the producer gave last month regarding the Spawn movie reboot, in which he stated that while the film will definitely happen, he had no idea when it will enter production as they have to get the script right first.

“So, we’re going to make the movie, definitely,” Blum continued. “I don’t know when we are going to make the movie. We are actually kind of re-tackling… we’re going down a different direction with the story than we had in the past, but we are not going to make the movie until that script is great. But one of these days it will be great and we will make it.”
