The Spawn reboot is heading to into production.
The reboot will start filming in the New York City area in January of 2019, which is just around the corner. It has also been reported that the budget for the Spawn reboot will be $10 million. Spawn creator Todd McFarlane will helm the film with Blumhouse set to produce.
Jamie Foxx will star as the character McFarlane originated in the comics, Al Simmons, aka Spawn, a former member of the CIA black ops who is betrayed by his team and murdered, whereupon he’s promptly sent to hell for killing innocents in the field. In hell, he makes a deal to exchange his soul in order to see his wife again, only to realize that once he’s returned to Earth, he’s stuck in a demonic getup and his wife has already moved on with his best friend. Brutal, kinda heroics and celestial battles ensue. Michael Jai White previously played the role on screen in the 1997 adaptation.
Spawn is eyeing a 2020 release date.
