Actor Jamie Foxx has been roped in to star in the upcoming superhero film ‘Spawn’. Foxx will play the role of Al Simmons, a black-ops agent who is betrayed and murdered, with his soul sent to hell for all the innocents he killed, reported Variety.
While there, he makes a deal with a demon who allows him to return to the earthly plane and his wife. However, five years have now passed and his wife has moved on, while he is a disfigured and super-powered spawn of hell.
Although he has returned to Earth, Simmons finds himself in the middle of a war between Heaven and Hell, with Hellspawn like himself hunted by angels for sport. Additionally, he has to deal with other threats including the Violator, another demon sent to Earth to cultivate evil and generate more soldiers for Hell’s army, who does so disguised as a human clown.
