Actor Jeremy Renner has boarded the cast of Blumhouse Productions' Spawn. The 47-year-old actor joins Jamie Foxx, who will be playing the title character, created by Todd McFarlane.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Renner will play Twitch, a 'good cop' surrounded by corrupt officers who ends up working with Spawn. The comic series follows Al Simmons (Foxx), a US Marine, working for a CIA black ops unit who is killed in battle and sent to hell for his war crimes. After selling his soul to a demon in exchange for being allowed to see his wife again, Simmons is transformed into a demonic warrior, Spawn, and he fights to regain his mind and control of his destiny.

The character, which first appeared in comics in 1992, is known to possess superhuman strength, speed and near immortality. He also has the ability to teleport, shapeshift and heal. McFarlane will write and direct the project. He will also produce the film.

This will be the second Spawn film, following the 1997 live-action adaptation, starring Michael Jai White in the title role. It was also made into a HBO animated series that won two Primetime Emmy Awards.
