Five years ago, Jamie Foxx was reportedly “aggressively pursuing” the role of comics anti-hero Spawn in the long in the works new adaptation of Todd McFarlane’s comic creation.
Now, with the newest take on the property finally going forward, Foxx may get that chance with That Hashtag Show reporting that Foxx has been offered the part of Al Simmons/Spawn in the film.
Should he accept though, he would only be co-star – the film’s main role will be Detective Twitch Williams who will team with Spawn to track down and bring violent justice to the men responsible for the kidnapping and murder of his daughter.
That part hasn’t been cast. At last report, McFarlane was hoping to begin production this year for a 2019 release.
