Having teamed with the streamer for the recent superhero action thriller Project Power, Jamie Foxx is set to reunite with Netflix for a vampire thriller entitled Day Shift.
As reported by THR, the film will see Foxx playing “a hard-working, blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-year-old daughter. His mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income: hunting and killing vampires.”
Day Shift will mark the directorial debut of J.J. Perry, a second-unit director and stunt coordinator who has worked on the likes of John Wick, The Fate of the Furious and Bloodshot, while John Wick helmer Chad Stahelski will produce. It is based on a script by Tyler Tice, which received the Slamdance Writing Competition Grand Prize.
Along with Day Shift, Foxx is also working on two further Netflix projects in the thriller They Cloned Tyrone and comedy series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me. He is currently gearing up to return to the role of Electro for Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man 3, and has the Pixar feature Soul debuting on Disney+ on Christmas Day.
