Jeremy Renner Will Play Detective Twitch Williams in New ‘Spawn’ Film

Todd McFarlane’s Spawn film is shaping up to be a lot more promising than initially expected, as it was announced today by Deadline that Jeremy Renner has been cast as Detective Twitch Williams, alongside Jamie Foxx as the title character in the upcoming film.

McFarlane told Deadline that he “… wanted to surround (him)self 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.” read more
