In a Facebook video on Friday, McFarlane announced that he just signed with Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions, the company behind Insidious and Jordan Peele’s Get Out.

McFarlane finished the script for the R-rated reboot just last year, and has been painstakingly searching for a studio to pick the title up where he would retain full creative control.

Unlike the 1997 Spawn movie starring Michael Jai White which was more of a superhero movie, this iteration will be more in Blumhouse’s wheelhouse, the horror and thriller genres. More information will be coming soon about the reboot, however, it is reported that McFarlane wants to spend around $10 million on the movie.
