Jamie Foxx 'aggressively pursuing' Spawn reboot

07.29.2013by: Kevin Woods

Back in February we reported that SPAWN creator Todd McFarlane had been in talks with an Academy Award-winning actor for his long awaited live action reboot of his comic creation, and now we know who that actor was: DJANGO UNCHAINED star Jamie Foxx!

Foxx recently sat down with Movies.com to talk about his first appearance in a superhero movie as the villain Electro in next summers THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and mentioned a couple of projects he is trying to make happen, stating...

"Spawn is one, yeah. And Mike Tyson. Those are two roles I would just love to do. I'm aggressively pursuing them."

So there you have it! Jamie Foxx wants to do SPAWN, so c'mon Hollywood...make it happen! I think Foxx could most certainly do the character justice. And, as a sidenote, the actor is almost perfect for an Iron Mike biopic.

Hey wait a minute...

Didn't another actor already play both SPAWN and Mike Tyson? Oh yeah. That's right...it was Michael Jai White!

Extra Tidbit: What are your thoughts on Jamie Foxx possibly playing SPAWN?

Hmm. With Big Name like Jamie Foxx attaches to the movie, Spawn 2 might be able to finally move along.

With all those recent reboots and adaptations of obscure comics I'm surprised that we haven't seen a new Spawn movie yet.

If Idris Elba plays Spawn, I'm in.

Why not...

Quite honestly I just want to see a decent Spawn movie... Fox would be fine, I always count him out and somehow he always surprises me. I honestly still do not know why people on this site have such a fascination for Idris Elba? What has he done that was so amazing people think he deserves every male, African American role available?

I want a better film.

I liked the original back in 97'
Far from being a great film. I liked Micheal Jai White as Spawn. I fee like he could still play the part. But Jamie's just as good. They need a better script and decent director and Spawn's going to come back, better than his last cinematic inperpretation.
