McFarlane: The main character isnt Spawn, per se, its the guy chasing Spawn. And Ive always had [Leonardo] DiCaprio in the back of my mind. Its a big wish, but his dad was a big fan of underground comic books and he came from that. Its not a big special-effects movie, its a character movie, so I could shoot it in 40-50 days and you dont have to budget that much time.
We had Sam and Twitch in the book, but because of some of the stuff Im trying to sell in Hollywood, we might have to change the characters a bit. But it would still be a police character whos chasing down a case and in the middle of this Godfather-type movie, something weird is out there and no one knows about it except him and a few other people.
