At New York Comic ConSpawn creator and writer/director of the upcoming film Todd McFarlane pledged to post daily Facebook updates during filming to chronicle the day-in-day-out goings-on of life on the set. He also promised that the film would go into pre-production after Christmas for a February start date.

McFarlane also added that the film will be "dark and R-rated," and not like Deadpool "with a couple F-bombs and a couple bare asses."

"It's going to be dark. I will have a shark in black water and if you're swimming he will come and you'll be gone and he will f*ck you up."

The budget for the film will be $10 million.

"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."

When asked why he felt he could direct a movie, the ever cocky McFarlane talked himself up.

"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."

Outside of Spawn, McFarlane touched on his meeting with Kevin Smith and AMC about the Sam and Twitch TV show, a new script sold to Showtime, and McFarlane Toys getting the Stranger Things license.
