Jeremy Renner joins Jamie Foxx in new SPAWN film cast lineup

In an exclusive scoop, Deadline broke the news that Academy Award nominated Jeremy Renner will join Jamie Foxx in the cast lineup for Todd McFarlane’s forthcoming Blumhouse film adaptation of SPAWN.

Renner has now been tapped to play the role of Detective “Twitch” Williams, who will be at the center of the Spawn movie story. Renner is perhaps best known for his phenomenal performances in such films as Hurt Locker, Arrival, The Town, and Wind River.

“With the ensemble of award-winning talent that has signed on to the Spawn Movie—Jason Blum (producer), Blumhouse Productions, Jamie Foxx (Spawn), and NOW Jeremy Renner—it is MORE than I’d EVER hoped for when first visualizing this movie years ago,” said Todd McFarlane, Spawn film director. “As a first-time feature film director, I’m humbled by the level of talented people putting their trust into my film project.”

This newest adaptation—a gritty, R-rated reimagining—marks Image President, co-founder and SPAWN creator, Todd McFarlane’s film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and co-producer with Blumhouse Productions.

SPAWN sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies at the time it was released and is one of the world’s bestselling and longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions sold worldwide in more than 120 countries and in 15 different languages.

The comic became an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO and a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million. McFarlane went on to direct and produce award-winning and critically acclaimed projects for top movie studios and record labels.
