Writers from Joker and Captain America: New World Order are taking the reins for the new Spawn movie script.

new spawn movie adds comic book movie alumni on script

The new Spawn movie, based on the long-running Image comic book, has found its writers. In a report by Deadline, Joker’s Scott Silver, Captain America: New World Order’s Malcolm Spellman, and rising star on the indie scene, Matt Mixon are teaming on a new script for the movie. The Spawn reboot, which has been in development at Blumhouse since 2017, has had its share of delays, but things seem to be finally moving along with Oscar winner Jamie Foxx still on board as Al Simmons and his hellish alter-ego.

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane is still focused on taking on being the director, but he explained that even though he wrote an initial treatment to the film, he was spread too thin and brought on the writing team to help bring Spawn back to the big screen.

“Hopefully next year we can bring you the news that it’s production,” McFarlane said via Facebook live. “Just wanted to share some of the super talents that has been added to this team. Here we go! Thanks, Scott. Thanks, Malcolm. Thanks, Matt for jumping in and trusting my character with you and your skill. Let’s go!”

In the comics, Spawn is a former black-ops agent named Al Simmons who makes a deal with the devil Malebolgia after being set up and killed by his boss and fellow agent. The deal assured Simmons that he could return to Earth to see his wife and child again. However, he was also tricked, and after his time on Earth expired, he would be a servant to the devil forever.

Spawn’s previous foray into live-action came from the 1997 movie starring Michael Jai White, Martin Sheen, and John Leguizamo, who was unrecognizable as Malebolgia’s henchman, the demon simply known as Clown. The film did moderately well, but couldn’t beat the Harrison Ford-driven Air Force One the same weekend, something that McFarlane still thinks about to this day.
