Todd McFarlane's upcoming Spawn reboot has pushed back its planned start of principal photography, this time to next summer after being expected to begin by the end of this year.

Long in development, the planned reboot was officially greenlit by Blumhouse Productions in July of last year with McFarlane, who first created Spawn in 1992 as one of Image Comics' inaugural titles, attached to write and direct the film.

As a relatively small production in comparison to major studio comic book adaptations, Spawn has a rumored production budget of $10-12 million whereas this year's R-rated antihero film Deadpool 2 had a reported production budget of $110 million.

Despite the minor setback, the production has serious talent behind the project. In addition to original creator McFarlane helming the film, the project is produced by Blumhouse founder Jason Blum with Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx attached to star as the titular antihero.

Written and directed by Todd McFarlane, Spawn stars Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner. The planned reboot does not currently have an announced release date.
