Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz (who apparently was retired) are teaming up for the new Netflix original film, Back in Action. Foxx announced the project via an audio tweet between him, Diaz, and Tom Brady — who is actually not apart of this project.
Seth Gordon is directing and co-penning the film alongside Brendan O’Brien. However details on the project are being kept under wraps. Beau Bauman is producing for Good One Productions alongside Gordon for Exhibit A, with Foxx, Datari Turner, O’Brien and Mark McNair exec producing.
This is the third time Foxx and Diaz are teaming up for a film. The first starred in the 1999 sports drama Any Given Sunday together and again in the 2014 remake of Annie. That was Diaz’s last role actually.
Production for Back in Action will begin later this year.
Diaz is best known for her turns in such films as Bad Teacher, Knight and Day, the Shrek and Charlie’s Angels franchises, My Sister’s Keeper, What Happens in Vegas, The Holiday, Gangs of New York, Vanilla Sky, Being John Malkovich and There’s Something About Mary, among many others.
Foxx won an Oscar in 2005 for Ray, landing a second nom the same year for Collateral. The decorated actor was recently seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home and will next appear in films including J.J. Perry’s fantasy pic Day Shift, Juel Taylor’s They Cloned Tyrone, Josh Greenbaum’s Strays, Maggie Betts’ The Burial, Nick Cassavetes’ God Is a Bullet, the comedy All-Star Weekend which he’s directing, and Brad Furman’s action pic Tin Soldier, among other projects.
