Cameron Diaz is coming back to acting in Jamie Foxx’s film.
Cameron Diaz is to come out of acting retirement to star in a new movie, the suitably-titled Back in Action, alongside Jamie Foxx.
Actor and musician Foxx teased the message on social media, releasing a phone call between himself and Diaz.
Eight years after, the pair seemed together in what became Diaz’s last film – a 2014 remake of Annie, in which she played Miss Hannigan.
Diaz, 49, said she was “so anxious” but “excited” about returning.
During the same phone call, Foxx, who won an Oscar for his 2004 portrayal of US soul singer Ray Charles, connected Diaz with Super Bowl-winner Tom Brady to offer some advice about launching a big-time comeback.
“I was talking to Jamie, and he said you need a few tips on how to un-retire,” said Brady, who returned to the NFL in March 2022, just six weeks after announcing his departure.
“I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,” he said.
“Honestly, exactly what I needed,” replied Diaz.
Foxx noted in the written caption to his post how he had had to employ the help of “another Goat” [greatest of all-time] to help Diaz to return.
“Cameron, I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now,” he declared.
According to Variety, Seth Gordon will direct the movie from a script he wrote with Brendan O’Brien. Plot details are being kept under wraps.
Foxx produces Back in Action with Datari Turner, O’Brien, and Mark McNair. Producers are Beau Bauman for Good One Productions and Gordon via Exhibit A.
