Cameron Diaz (49) seems to have had enough of retirement. She is said to be back in front of the camera for a Netflix film called Back in Action. This is reported by the US industry portal “Deadline”. In the strip, she will be seen alongside Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (54).
According to “Deadline”, nothing is known about the plot of the action-comedy. However, it should already be certain that Seth Gordon (45, “Kill the Boss”) will direct – based on a screenplay that he wrote together with Brendan O’Brien.
Help from Tom Brady
Jamie Foxx has already given a taste of the new project on Twitter. The Hollywood star posted an audio clip of a phone conversation with Diaz. She reveals that she is “so excited” but also “scared” about getting back into acting. Diaz says, “I don’t know how to do this, you know?”
She should then get tips for her return from Tom Brady (44), whom Foxx brings to the conversation. The 44-year-old has recently become an expert on such things: The NFL star announced his retirement in February, which he reversed a few weeks later. The three stars joke about it on Twitter. What exactly Brady had to say to Diaz cannot be heard on the recording. Foxx captioned the post: “There’s no going back. @CameronDiaz and I are Back in Action – our new film with @NetflixFilm. Production will start later this year!!”
Cameron Diaz announced her retirement from acting in 2018. The “Charlie’s Angels” star had her last film engagement in 2014 in the musical adaptation “Annie” – also alongside Jamie Foxx. Diaz has been married to musician Benji Madden (43) since January 2015. In December 2019, they became parents to a daughter.
