Jason Blum Shares a Status Update About 'Spawn' Reboot

The new Spawn movie is coming!

The long-awaited reboot of the film, which has been plagued by delays, is set to be released in 2025, according to Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse.

“2025 is when Spawn is going to come out,” he told during the press junket for The Exorcist: Believer, doubling down on his earlier claims: “I stand by that. I stand by that.”

Jamie Foxx was set to play Spawn, but the reboot suffered several delays.

The Hollywood strikes brought film projects to a halt, while Jamie suffered a life-threatening health scare that left him hospitalized for weeks.

Creator Todd McFarlane told CBR earlier: “My original plan has gotten tripped up a bit. You deal with a lot, given Hollywood. None of that should be surprising. But, you start bringing on A-list people. And we’re bringing on A-list people. Not just one, but multiple A-list people. And, it’s going to continue to grow…what they’re not going to want is to do a cheap, low-budget movie with all of these big-name people on it. That’s not why they’re signing up. They’re not looking for a big extravaganza. But, they’re also not looking for an 8 million dollar horror movie budget.”

He also revealed the tone of the film.

“I think in between [The Boys and a traditional horror movie]. We’ve got a different group of people on board, and they might not be as darkly bent as I am. If you ask me, I’d make it ugly, dark, make children cry. But the play we’re trying for, and we’ll see whether it works, and we’ll know by the end of this year — we’re taking a pretty big moonshot of what we think we can pull off in Hollywood. If we can pull it off, it will be a big deal, financially, and once you get into those conversations, they’re going to want to do it in a way that they can then get their money back.”
