Grey Goose Vodka may have helped Todd McFarlane’s upcoming Spawn reboot, starring Jaime Foxx, land Jeremy Renner as Twitch.
Renner was recently confirmed to play Detective Maximilian Steven Percival “Twitch” Williams III, in the upcoming Spawn reboot from McFarlane and Blumhouse. McFarlane revealed to Screen Rant, Foxx’s show OFF SCRIPT, from Grey Goose, may have helped with the casting of Renner.
You can read McFarlane’s story below:
“Yeah! Well here, I’ll tell you a funny story. I had gone up to Mr. Renner’s house to go talk to him about the character to see, you know, basically try to do the sell. I think that was a Thursday. So by the time I did some other things… I flew back to Phoenix, I wake up Friday morning. And Jamie does these interviews with Grey Goose, I don’t know if you’ve seen any of them.”
McFarlane continued saying:
“Okay. And the one that he posted on Friday, which was literally half a day from where I was, was him talking to Jeremy. And I’m going, ‘Wow! This is serendipitous.’ I’m going ‘There’s Jamie, talking to Jere– this could actually be my two stars here.’ So I poked Jamie and went, ‘Hey Jamie just FYI, I just came from Mr. Renner’s house it looks like you guys are friends…”
The Spawn creator and director says during the OFF SCRIPT interview, Renner hadn’t been cast as Twitch yet:
“Yeah, I didn’t know they were going to be talking! They didn’t know I was talking– he didn’t know I was talking, I didn’t know he was talking. Again, I don’t know when they recorded it either you know, they could’ve recorded it two months [earlier], I don’t know. But I go, ‘Oh, they at least know eachother in some capacity.’ So I text Jamie and go ‘Hey Jamie, we’re all trying to nudge the Renner team here, if you could chime in a little bit…’ So he helped too. They looked good together.”
McFarlane teases it’s the first look at Foxx and Renner’s chemistry:
“Yeah, yeah, just go to to Jamie’s Grey Goose interview with Jeremy [Laughs]. And they didn’t know it at that point. But when I saw it on that Friday I went, ‘Wow, both these guys don’t know this could be it right here.”
You can check out the OFF SCRIPT episode with Fox and Renner below:
Production is reportedly expected to begin soon in New York City and additional locations. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions will produce the project.
The Spawn reboot will star Jamie Foxx in the titular role and Jeremy Renner as Twitch, a decent cop surrounded by a corrupt police force who works with the lead hero.
Spawn does not have a release date.

First Photos For ‘Glass’ Reunite Samuel L. Jackson & Bruce Willis
Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first photos from M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass featuring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy.
Nearly two decades after Unbreakable was released in theaters, the story of David Dunn and Elijah Price will finally continue in M. Night Shyamalan’s Gass, a superhero thriller that also serves as a sequel to 2019’s Split. Now, the first official photos from the film offer fans a preview of the reunion between Dunn and Price as they undergo psychological treatment alongside James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb (The Horde).
The new photos also feature Anya Taylor-Joy’s Casey Cooke and offer a first look at Sarah Paulson’s character, with M. Night Shyamalan revealing new details on the latter’s role:
“She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters. It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’”
