We got some big Jamie Foxx news to share with you all today. The 50-year-old actor (yes, he’s 50) is set to star in the latest ‘Spawn‘ film from Todd McFarlane and Blumhouse Productions.
Sources confirmed the news to Variety. McFarlane, the creator of the original comic, will direct and write this movie.
Variety provides us with additional information:
“The Spawn character first appeared in print in 1992, and gained popularity in the comics community almost instantly. In 1997, New Line adapted the character into a feature film starring Michael Jai White. HBO also took a crack at the antihero in an animated series that lasted for three seasons, each with six episodes, and earned two Emmy Awards.
In the comics, Spawn is a human-turned-Hellspawn who possesses superhuman strength and speed, and near immortality. Spawn also has the ability to teleport, shapeshift, and heal.”
This will be McFarlane’s directorial debut. It will be just the second comic-book performance for Foxx. He played Electro in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ back in 2014.
No word on when this movie is expected to be released, but we will keep you posted. For now, if you want more Foxx, you can catch him in the upcoming ‘Robin Hood‘ film, which is set to be released November 21, 2018.[mashshare]
