But on the positive side, the 1997 movie did a great job of making Martin Sheen look relatively young.

True, I do like John Leguizamo as The Violator, but the CGI is some of the worst ever put on film.

I thought an unknown actor might have been better, but oh well. An Academy Award winning actor as Spawn isn't a bad thing either.

Getting Jamie Foxx should help sell some tickets. Seeing that it's planned to have a $10-12M budget, it should make some money.

Exactly. Plus he couldn't be any worse in this than he was in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, right? RIGHT?

Meh. If all they have is a $10-12 million dollar budget, they should have just brought back Michael Jai White. Its not like Jamie Foxx is some huge name or box office draw that will get people to see a Spawn movie.

And the original 1996 version had a 40 million budget (and look how shitty that one was then and now). I don't really think they're going to focus on the CGI for this one. They can't, but since it's Blumhouse, they'll figure something out.

What is Jamie Foxx getting scale? I can’t see him taking that and maybe percentage of gross. How the hell can they do this on so small a budget?

Accoaldes. It's low budget, supposedly horror angle, and Blumhouse produced. Blumhouse also produced Get Out, so I assume Foxx wants his own Get Out, too.

Meh. I don’t care much either way. I still don’t see Foxx as a good fit but who knows.

Baby Driver was only a $34 million budget that had an ensemble cast. Maybe if everyone else involved with Spawn is off the C or D list, it won't balloon that $12 million?

Spawn Reboot Described As A Supernatural Thriller, Won’t Be A Gore Fest

90’s comic book legend Todd McFarlane is set to do what most creators can only dream of – bring their own characters to the screen exactly how they imagine them to be.

Since first coming up with the hellish antihero Spawn in 1992, McFarlane’s kept a relatively tight grip on the character, to the point that the upcoming reboot only got the greenlight because he was allowed to write and direct it himself. Blumhouse Productions, currently on a financial winning streak, decided to take a chance on the relatively low budget project and it looks to have paid off so far, as the film now boasts Jamie Foxx in the lead role.

Now that all the pieces have fallen into place, we’re hearing a bit more about what the finished product will look like, courtesy of an interview McFarlane did with ComicBook.com. First up was the question of tone, and while we already know this isn’t going to be a traditional superhero origin story, what exactly is it going to be?

“I hesitate on the word horror,” said McFarlane. “I’m very specific about not using that word too much. Because it has a broad definition to a lot of people. Horror, to my wife or to a lot of people, it means, oh, you’re gonna slaughter some co-eds in some bloodbath or something. I consider dialling it back to say it’s a supernatural thriller. So then it’s not gonna be a gore fest.”

Current rumors are that, contrary to expectations, Spawn won’t feature too much of its titular character, instead focusing on a group of cops struggling to process the arrival of a monstrous avenging presence on the streets alongside them. It’s said that Spawn will be more effective if we see other people’s reactions to him, in a similar manner to how Spielberg treats the shark in Jaws.

EXCLUSIVE: Jeremy Renner’s Potential ‘SPAWN’ Role Revealed

Last week it was reported that Jeremy Renner had boarded Todd McFarlane’s upcoming Spawn film. While we cannot confirm whether or not Renner has indeed signed on to do the picture (as of publishing this piece, multiple calls and emails had gone unanswered), we can confirm the role for which Renner was being considered: the film’s lead Twitch Williams.
