Attention Malebolgia disciples! We got good news out of the Spawn camp today. The Toddfather, Todd McFarlane tweeted out some photos of him hanging with what is to be the new Spawn.

The photos of McFarlane, Jamie Foxx and Jason Blum, appeared along with some exciting words.

“YES heard right!! We’ve casted SPAWN in the upcoming Spawn Movie produced by Blumhouse.I’m excited to tell YOU good people that the TALENTED, Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx has accepted the role!

This is the first BIG step in more exciting announcements to come and, as promised, I will keep YOU all updated first on my Page right here.”

After five years of Foxx’s involvement, we finally have an official cast announcement for the role of the vengeful hell-fueled Al Simmons. The new film is described as more horror-centric than the previous film adaptation and will be handled by Blumhouse.

Foxx is a solid actor, and a huge fan of the comic series making for the perfect candidate in my opinion.
