Comics legend is launching connected series of comics centered around his pioneering superhero that could eventually span to film and TV. "I want to put my stake in the ground and create something much, much bigger.”
Jamie Foxx arrives for the 2018 BET Awards in Los Angeles on June 24, 2018. There are few stars as popular — and versatile — as Jamie Foxx, who has thrived on TV (In Living Color, The Jamie Foxx Show), won an Oscar (for 2004’s Ray), and been awarded a Grammy (for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group for 2009’s “Blame It”). “Off Script is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” Foxx confessed during a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment in New York.
The famed comic creator Todd McFarlane explains why the time is right to relaunch his signature character, Spawn, on the big screen, and how it may spin off on the small screen.
McFarlane reiterated that the first draft of the screenplay is complete, and that he’ll be stepping behind the camera on the film, described as “a dark, R-rated, scary, badass.”
