Cameron Diaz will return to the cinema with Jamie Foxx in a Netflix comedy
Four years after announcing his retirement, Cameron Díaz will once again be in front of the cameras to star in an action comedy alongside Jamie Foxx that will be part of the Netflix catalog.
Foxx himself confirmed the signing this Tuesday by publishing a call with Díaz in which the athlete Tom Brady also participated to give advice on how to return to the trade, since he himself returned to play in the professional American football league a month after announce his retirement.
“I’m nervous but I don’t know how to do this. Do you know?” Diaz is heard saying on the call. For her part, the “streaming” platform limited itself to posting a tweet stating that the actress is “officially un-retiring”.

Despite the commotion mounted, Netflix keeps secret the details of the film’s plot, about which it is only known that it will be called “Back in Action” (Back to action), in a clear nod to the return of the actress to the screens.
Filming will begin later this year with Seth Gordon (“Horrible Bosses”) directing and Brendan O’Brien (“Neighbors”) penning the script. Díaz and Foxx have already worked together in “Any Given Sunday” (1999) and “Annie” (2014), which was his last role in a feature film.
The 49-year-old actress announced her retirement in 2018, after participating in countless blockbuster movies such as “My Best Friend’s Wedding”, “There’s Something About Mary”, “Charlie’s Angels” and ” Shrek”.
Her role in “The Mask” (1994), the iconic comedy starring Jim Carrey, catapulted Diaz to the forefront of Hollywood and made her one of the most bankable stars on the big screen.
