Over the last several days, comic book creator Todd McFarlane teased an update regarding his long-in-development Spawn remake was coming. The project has been developing with horror studio Blumhouse since 2017 but has never moved forward. At one point, Jamie Foxx was attached to star in the film alongside Jeremy Renner.
Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced that three new screenwriters have boarded the project to rewrite McFarlane’s original script. According to the report, Joker co-writer Scott Silver, Falcon and The Winter Soldier writer Malcolm Spellman, and newcomer Matt Mixon will all help pen the new screenplay. McFarlane once considered directing the project himself but has conceded as they will look for an A-list director moving forward. Foxx is still attached to star, but Renner may be too busy since his original announcement. No production date has been set for the film.
