Jamie Foxx to Play Lead in Upcoming Live-Action SPAWN Movie

In an exclusive post from Deadline, the news was announced that Jamie Foxx will play Spawn in the upcoming Todd McFarlane’s Blumhouse Productions adaptation of Spawn.

The new R-rated re-imagining is Image President, co-founder and Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane’s film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and co-producer with Blumhouse.

“There are five or six moments where I’m going to need things from my actors, and a couple of them have to come from Jamie, and I’ve seen him deliver them onscreen,” said McFarlane.

“He gets into a zone, with body language and a look that basically will say way more than anything I could type on a piece of paper, and this movie is going to need those moments. In the odd moment where he has to deliver a line that’s short, curt, and has impact, he can do it in a way that makes you go, ‘Whoa, I don’t want to mess with that guy. What a badass.’”

Spawn sold 1.7 million copies at the time it was released, and is one of the world’s best-selling and longest-running monthly comic books. It sold hundreds of millions of copies in more than 120 countries, and 15 different languages.

The comic has previously been adapted into an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO, as well as a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million.
