Following reports the other week of this potential casting, Jeremy Renner is now set to join the new adaptation of the “Spawn” comic series from Blumhouse Productions.
Foxx is set to star as Al Simmons, a betrayed and murdered black-ops agent who makes a deal with a demon which allows him to return to Earth and see his wife.
Five years have now passed though and his wife has moved on, so Simmons now roams the earth as a disfigured super-powered spawn of Hell trapped in the middle of a war between Heaven and Hell.
Renner will play Twitch, a good cop surrounded by corrupt officers who ends up working with Spawn. “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane penned the script and is making his directorial debut on the project which aims to begin production this Fall.
