Jamie Foxx 'aggressively pursuing' Spawn reboot

Jul. 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!

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.

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?

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

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