Greg Nicotero To Provide Visual Effects For Spawn Reboot

The Walking Dead’s master of makeup, Greg Nicotero is set to handle the Spawn reboot’s visual effects as well as well as a new design of the suit for the upcoming film. In speaking with Spawn creator Todd McFarlane spoke about bringing Nicotero on to the project.

“When I conceived of the story to start with, I never really thought of it as big special effects extravaganza because I knew we weren’t going to have the budget for it. So I knew I was going to rely heavily on practical makeup and costuming, and one of the places that kept popping up was my good pal Greg Nicotero on his KNB Group. And he’s obviously done a tremendous amount of work on dozens and dozens of movies. The sort of serendipitous part of it is that Greg was there at the beginning 20 years ago for the original Spawn movie.”

Greg Nicotero:

“I’ve been friends with Todd since we did the original Spawn, and the guy’s just a genius. I love the way his mind works. He thinks very, very graphically. I know he really loves the idea of Spawn being dark, and I love the animated show. It’s just a really great opportunity for us to get a chance to collaborate again.”

Nicotero and McFarlane worked together two decades ago on the original Spawn film (among a few other projects) in the version that starred John Leguizamo. One of the more popular comic book characters, it’s definitely time for Spawn to be brought back to the big screen, now with Nicotero and his KBX visual effects group on board, this bodes well for the reboot. McFarlane will write as well as direct the film and it is very likely the Spawn reboot will have an R rating attached.
