Spawn Reboot Director

We’re getting closer to the long-rumored Spawn reboot. It’s been 20 years since the first terrible Spawn film adaptation, and ever since its release, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has been teasing a new, better Spawn film. Now Blumhouse is making that idea a reality, and McFarlane himself is directing. The comic book artist has never helmed a film before, so his hiring on this project might raise an eyebrow or two. But Blumhouse head honcho Jason Blum isn’t concerned. In a recent interview, Blum justified putting the untested McFarlane into the director’s chair. Read on for Blum’s thoughts regarding the Spawn reboot director.

Daniel Kaluuya interview

In Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya doesn’t play the typical thriller/horror movie lead. The character makes some wise decisions as things go wrong. He feels real, his backstory feels real, his relationship feels real, and his emotions feel real. Kaluuya isn’t playing a cardboard character waiting to get the ax; he plays somebody the audience understands and roots for.

With his directorial debut, Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) has given Kaluuya a role with a genuine interior life. The actor is known for his time on the popular drama Skins, but he’s had some memorable performances over the past few years, including a supporting role in Sicario and an impassioned performance in Black Mirror.

I spoke with Kaluuya, who also has a part in Marvel’s Black Panther, about working with Peele, on-set improvisation, and the significance of the “sunken place” in Get Out.

With his directorial debut, Get OutJordan Peele exhibits remarkable range as a writer and director. His film, which comes from Blumhouse Productions, works on multiple levels. Whether he’s nailing a laugh or a scare, shooting an intimate scene between a couple by a lake, or just delivering the unexpected, Peele hardly feels like a rookie in the director’s chair.

He started writing Get Out three years ago, but his journey towards getting behind the camera has been a long time coming. The co-creator of Key & Peele has been dreaming of helming a movie for many years. Now, he finally has done it with a thoughtful thriller that’s always slyly moving at full speed towards an unforgettable third act.
