News Jamie Foxx to Star in Todd McFarlane’s New R-Rated ‘Spawn’ Flick for Blumhouse Published 5 months ago on May 29, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet We have just been informed that Todd McFarlane and Blumhouse Productions have signed up Jamie Foxx to play the role of Spawn, confirms Deadline this evening. Continue reading to find out what director Todd McFarlane and star Jamie Foxx had to say about the upcoming project. McFarlane told Deadline: “The scariest movies, from Jaws to John Carpenter’s The Thing, or The Grudge and The Ring, the boogeyman doesn’t talk.” Foxx will play the character who started out in the comics as Al Simmons, a member of a CIA black ops team who is betrayed twice. After being set up by his cohorts to be murdered with his corpse set aflame, Newman is double crossed in Hell. He is convinced to become a Hellspawn warrior in exchange for being able to be reunited with his wife. But Spawn finds himself stuck in a demonic creature shell, and that his wife moved on and married his best friend. So this is one pissed-off antihero who attends to dispatching the scum of the city in good and evil battles that encompass Earth, Heaven and Hell. Foxx speaks on being cast: “A few years back I flew out to Arizona to meet the man behind one of the most incredible comic book characters in the universe… Todd McFarlane. He was taken aback when I told him with the enthusiasm of a young child that more than anything I wanted to put my name in the hat to embody his beloved character Spawn…. I told him no one would work harder than me if given the opportunity… well… the opportunity is here!! I’m humbled and ready to transform… and to top things off the young Jason Blum is lending his brilliance to the project! Time to be great!!!!” There’s also plans to further expand into a trilogy, that’s if the new film performs well. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the new R-Rated Spawn flick?
