Which Academy Award winning actor is attached to play Spawn in the upcoming reboot?
Interesting news comes to us from MTV Geek today in the way of the SPAWN reboot.
The network blog caught up with creator Todd McFarlane at Toy Fair 2013 to discuss the upcoming film. McFarlane says that there is an Academy Award winning actor just waiting to get a script on the project:
Of course, McFarlane won't tell who it is, even though we can pretty much narrow it down ourselves.
From that we can assume that whomever it is, is an actor who is concerned about aging with the series. Does that mean he's a younger actor? Here's the list of possibilities within the correct age range: Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Who can we cross out? I'm going to say everyone but Cuba Gooding Jr. That was almost too easy...
Although the movie may be coming along slowly (which is good), a new animated series seems to be going full steam:
SPAWN was one of my first comic loves as a kiddo. One of the best gifts I ever received was the HBO animated series box set. So yes, the film that came out back in 1997 was a complete letdown. But it also exposed me to the awesomeness that is Michael Jai White. I think it deserves a good movie. Will this be it? I can't say.
