Todd McFarlane has revealed that the upcoming film adaptation for his comic book character Spawn will be casting soon, after the script was recently green-lit. Speaking to AzCentral, McFarlane explained that the Spawn movie will be more of a supernatural thriller,  than conventional superhero film - adding that the plot is seriously dark, serious and completely R-rated: 

We just signed off on the script, and are going into budgeting. We’re also having our casting meeting. It will be dark and heavy, serious, R-rated. It won’t be a superhero movie. I don’t think most people would categorize it as that. It will be a supernatural thriller, like a lot of good creep movies. The only thing in the movie that’s fantastic is Spawn, and anything else is otherwise normal.

Speaking more of the film's plot, specific to the Spawn character himself, Todd explained that the main character in the movie will not actually be Spawn, but a cop instead:

The lead role isn’t Spawn, the lead role is a cop, like Sheriff Brody from Jaws. I think we can hook a fairly significant actor that we want. Unlike a superhero movie, we wouldn’t need an actor to put on prosthetic (makeup) or go to the gym. We just need him to act.

No release date has yet been announced for the Spawn movie, but as new plot and casting details surface we'll be sure to keep you updated!
