Jeremy Renner confirmed for SPAWN reboot

Spawn

Todd Macfarlane’s Spawn reboot is continuing to gather steam.

We’ve previously heard that Jamie Foxx will be taking on the lead in the movie. Now That Hashtag Show has confirmed that Avengers star Jeremy Renner will be taking on the role of Twitch.

Macfarlane had this to say of Renner’s casting:

“As a first time director, I wanted to surround myself with the most talent and the most skilled people I can on all fronts. I was lucky enough to land Jason Blum and then Jamie Foxx, and I knew the person on screen the most is this police officer, Twitch Williams. We needed as strong a person as possible because he will be the face of the film.

I took my naïve Hollywood approach again, and said let’s start at the top and work down. Jeremy was at the top. I’m a huge fan of his. The character doesn’t need to be a bodybuilder or GQ handsome. I was looking for somebody who’s a person you’ve met before; I needed someone who can pull off the grief of an average human being. I’ve seen Jeremy do that in more than a few of his movies. He was at the top of my list, just like Jamie.”

Twitch will team with the titular character to help track down his daughters killer.

Are you excited to see what first time director Macfarlane can do to bring his masterpiece to the big screen?
