Greg Nicotero, director for the zombie drama TV series The Walking Dead, has been chosen to join the crew of the upcoming Spawn film. Nicotero, along with his company KNB EFX, will be creating the new updated look for Spawn.
"I'm a long-time fan of Greg's work and the projects his company, KNB have done throughout the years. Working with him once again, to re-invent the Spawn 'look' so it will match the supernatural theme in the movie, is going to be a fun process", said Todd McFarlane, the film's director.
The original Spawn film was released in 1997 and starred Michael Jai White in the title role. The reboot will star Jamie Foxx as Spawn and Jeremy Renner will play Twitch.
Spawn is slated for a 2019 release.
