You can find this one filed under “yeah buddy…. keep dreaming”. It was announced a while ago that Spawn creator, Todd Mcfarlane was working on bringing his most famous character back to the big screen. Rebooting it rather than doing a sequel. That’s pretty cool.
But today he mentioned who he’s got in mind to be in Spawn. Leonardo DiCaprio.
The good folks over at MTV give us this:
“As for the character he envisions DiCaprio playing in the film, McFarlane hinted that it wouldn’t be either of the two detectives “Spawn” fans have come to know best — possibly due to some other Hollywood project with their names on it.
“We had Sam and Twitch in the book, but because of some of the stuff I’m trying to sell in Hollywood, we might have to change the characters a bit,” explained McFarlane. “But it would still be a police character who’s 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.”
No don’t get me wrong, I’d very much like to see someone of Leo’s caliber jump on a project like this one. But let’s face it, it ain’t gonna happen. No way, no how. Not ever. You will not see Leonardo DiCaprio in a Spawn movie. Period. And don’t forget… I’m the guy who predicted that the Halo movie was going to fold (ummmm… but John… aren’t you also the guys who predicted for years that there wasn’t going to be another Indiana Jones movie?). SHUT UP!!!!
