Spawn gets a start date, Mayhem gets a trailer, and more, as we look at some of the biggest stories from the week in horror.
Todd McFarlane’s Spawn starts filming in February
A new Spawn film is due to start filming this February under the direction of original creator Todd McFarlane, who also wrote the script. The film, to be produced by Blumhouse, will be a hard-R horror venture with a budget of just $10 million.
In a discussion at New York Comic Con, McFarlane addressed a fans question about his lack of directing pedigree, stating, “I didn’t use to draw comic books and I drew comic books and I won awards. I don’t know how to read music and I have a Grammy Award. I’m spending my own money so who cares if it doesn’t work out. It’s a $10 million budget movie, and (a studio) would just get a 22-year-old punk director. I just want to be the old punk directing it.”
Trailer for Mayhem arrives
The trailer for the new film Mayhem dropped this week. Starring Steven Yuen, Samara Weaving, and Steven Breand, and is directed by Joe Lynch. In Mayhem:
Derek Cho (Steven Yeun) is having a really bad day. After being unjustly fired from his job, he discovers that the law firm’s building is under quarantine for a mysterious and dangerous virus. Chaos erupts throughout the office as the victims of the disease begin acting out their wildest impulses. Joining forces with a former client (Samara Weaving) who has a grudge of her own, Derek savagely fights tooth and nail to get to the executives on the top floor and settle the score once and for all.
Mayhem is out on VOD, Digital HD and in theatres November 10th.
