Todd McFarlane, via his Twitter page, recently announced that he is currently writing a new Spawn film. He says:

"I've officially begun writing the Spawn movie screenplay. The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years. Will continue to update. The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a stand alone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary. The tone of this Spawn movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film Departed."

This movie will mark the second live-action adaptation of this highly influential Image comic.
