There might be a lot of excitement building up over Todd McFarlane’s Spawn reboot now that the project’s signed with Blumhouse Productions, however it seems like the comicbook movie’s going to turn out to be a “low-budget” movie.

Speaking with Collider about the Spawn reboot, one of the film’s producers and owner of Blumhouse Productions, Jason Blum, has confirmed that the upcoming superhero film is going take on a “low-budget” production style.

“This Spawn movie is a kind of superhero movie, but a very different kind of feeling superhero movie. I like the idea of low-budget superhero movies. It’s cool.”

This lines up with McFarlane’s vision for the Spawn reboot, saying that the Hellspawn that was formerly known as CIA agent Albert Francis “Al” Simmons would take a minor role in the reboot the same way the shark did in Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.

Jaws’s shark didn’t make too many appearances in the film, showing up only “at the opportune time to make the movie worthwhile.”

Though fans would be hoping to see more of Spawn in the film, it seems like McFarlane and Blumhouse are taking a more practical approach that focuses on good screenwriting to deliver a successful superhero film. Let’s just hope they can pull it off.

The Spawn reboot doesn’t have a release date just yet but we’ll update everyone as soon as we get word.
