One of things that people sometimes forget is that just because you are talented in one area, does not mean you’re talented in the other. For example, one can be an excellent artist, yet not have the abilities to formulate their own story. Then, there’s the idea that writers shouldn’t direct adaptations of their own product. Such a thing is about to happen to Spawn, as the characters creator Todd McFarlane is set to direct the next live-action film for him.
However, the head of the production studio, Jason Blume has revealed to ComicBookResources.com that he has full confidence in his abilities:
“I think he’s gonna do a great job,” Blum said. “Being a director encompasses a lot of different skills, but one of the most important skills is you have to be a great manager. You’re kind of a General of this army that you have to lead into battle every day, and he does that in his life every day running McFarlane Enterprises. So I think that translates to directing in a lot of ways. We’ve had a great back-and-forth around developing the script. I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t think he could do a great job, but we’ll see. I have a good feeling about it.”
We’ll just have to see if it plays out like he hopes.
