Todd McFarlane Revealed Spawn Film Lost “Academy Award-Winning Guy”

In an interview McFarlane did with Shoryuken, 

“Last week I got some discouraging news, we had an Academy Award-winning guy who was going to do the movie with us, but he fell off,” McFarlane confessed. 

From Comicbook.com:

During a recent interview, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that the upcoming reboot film lost an “Academy Award-winning guy,” which ignited speculation from some outlets that he was referring to star Jamie Foxx, though ComicBook.com has learned that the Academy-nominated creator was a writer and that McFarlane has moved on to approaching yet another award-winning writer. This news is sure to come as a relief to fans, as Foxx has long been attached to the project and has been a major point of interest regarding the reboot. While it’s still unclear when the project will be moving forward, it will currently do so with Foxx as the titular character.

So look like all is well in terms of Jamie Foxx remaining on the project. Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief….
