It's nice to dream big.

Todd McFarlane is full steam ahead on his new Spawn movie reboot and he's dreaming big. Really big. Leonardo DiCaprio big.

"When I was writing, I had Leonardo DiCaprio in my head," McFarlane explained. "I don't know if people have seen The Wolf of Wall Street, but there is a manicness in him. He was going up and down and up and down. It was almost dizzying emotionally to go with him. There are parts in this movie where I'm going to need an actor to make those moves both in terms of normality, and in terms of manic, and in terms of anger and in terms of joy and be able to go to some extremes in it."

McFarlane recently revealed that this new incarnation would be inspired by Jaws, meaning Spawn would hopefully rarely show up in the movie. He also claimed A-list actors were practically knocking down his door for the title role, but wouldn't name names. With DiCaprio's schedule booked with movies such as The Black Hand, The Ballad of Richard JewellSatoriDevil In The White City, and Blood On Snow, it's unlikely he'll have the time for Spawn.
