Jamie Foxx to Star in Netflix’s Day Shift

-

Jamie Foxx is set to star in and executive produce Day Shift for Netflix. JJ Perry will make his directorial debut.

Perry is known as a second unit director and stunt coordinator. His credits include F9, The Fate of the Furious, Bloodshot, and the John Wick franchise.

Day Shift stars Foxx as a hard working blue collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted eight-year-old daughter, but his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income, hunting and killing vampires.

The film was written by Tyler Tice with current revisions by Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum, and upcoming films Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead for Netflix, and John Wick: Chapter 4).

The producers are Chad Stahelski (John Wick franchise) & Jason Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment; and Shaun Redick (Get Out, BlackKklansman) & Yvette Yates Redick (Malicious) for Impossible Dream Entertainment.

The executive producers are Jamie Foxx and Datari Turner, as well as Peter Baxter.

“Day Shift is a pulse-pounding thrill ride with action, danger and grounded comedy mixed with a deep mythology, the key ingredients for the absolute best time you can have watching a movie,” said Shaun Redick. “We couldn’t be more excited about producing this at Netflix with Jamie Foxx starring!”

Chad Stahelski added: “I’ve known and worked with JJ for a long time. His unique vision of Day Shift makes it such a great first directorial project for him.”

Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick discovered the Day Shift screenplay when debut writer Tyler Tice won the Slamdance Writing Competition Grand Prize.

Impossible Dream Entertainment attached Perry to direct, and along with Tice they developed the screenplay further then teamed with Chad Stahelski and 87Eleven Entertainment and Netflix.

This extends Jamie Foxx’s relationship with Netflix. He recently starred in Project Power and will co-star in and produce the upcoming film They Cloned Tyrone and series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

Foxx next stars in Pixar’s Soul, debuting on Disney+ on December 25 this year.
