  • Is Jeremy Renner Joining Jamie Foxx In ‘Spawn’?

    <p>If <strong>Todd McFarlane</strong> hadn’t landed <strong>Jamie Foxx</strong> in the lead role of his <a href="http://bloody-disgusting.com/?s=Spawn"><strong><em>Spawn</em></strong></a> reboot, I’d be in tears laughing at the mere speculation that*<strong>Jeremy Renner </strong>(<em>Hansel and Gretel, Tag, Avengers</em>) could be starring. Yet, here we are. Unconfirmed rumors are swirling that Renner will not only star in <em>Spawn</em>, but will be playing Twitch Williams.</p>
    <p>A source with knowledge of the production tipped<a href="http://thathashtagshow.com/2018/07/exclusive-jeremy-renners-potential-spawnrole-revealed/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> The Hashtag Show</a>*(who has been wrong on <em>many</em> occasions) off to Renner’s potential role as Twitch, a character described as “an honest detective” who will team up with Spawn as he seeks vengeance for the murder of his young daughter.</p>
    <p>McFarlane, who created <em>Spawn</em> and will direct and produce the adaptation from his own script, has openly stated that he intends to keep casting quiet. We’ll see how this all pans out.</p>
    <p>Foxx will star as the title character, an elite mercenary (Al Simmons) who is killed but comes back from Hell as a reluctant soldier of the Devil.</p>
    <p>“Spawn” was the first massive launch pad for Image Comics in May of 1992. New Line Cinema would adapt the comic in 1997 with Michael Jai White starring*alongside John Leguizamo.*A*<a href="http://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3500728/retrospective-hbos-spawn-still-characters-best-incarnation/">“Spawn” animated series</a>*also ran from 1997-1999 totally 18 episodes.</p>
