‘Broken City’ scribe Brian Tucker to pen new ‘Spawn’ film script

The new ‘Spawn’ film may finally be back on track.

On Friday, Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that screenwriter Brian Tucker will be writing the script for Todd McFarlane’s new Spawn movie.

Before you go running to IMDB to figure out who that is, I’ll save you the trouble. It’s not the same Brian Tucker who writes for SNL, which would have been an odd-yet-promising choice. This Brian Tucker only has one screenwriting credit for 2013’s Broken City, which I haven’t seen or heard much about.

This is normally the point where I’d give my thoughts about whether this is a good choice or not, but I honestly have no idea. The dude has also been entrusted by Warner Bros. to write their reboot of The Fugitive, so hopefully that’s a good sign.

Whatever the case, the new Spawn movie has been in limbo for a few years, so it’s nice to finally hear some news about the project moving forward. Considering how well Image’s King Spawn sold recently, there’s certainly an audience for new media involving the character.

One would assume that Todd McFarlane is still directing, although there’s been no word yet on if Jamie Foxx is still attached to star as Albert Simmons.
