It’s been announced that Jamie Foxx is reteaming with Netflix for DAY SHIFT, a vampire hunter drama from director J.J. Perry. Foxx, who serves as an executive producer on the project, will also star as a hard-working blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-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.
Joining the production effort for DAY SHIFT is John Wick franchise director Chad Stahelski and John Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment alongside Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick of Impossible Dream Entertainment.
Tyler Tice wrote the original script, which is getting revisions by Shay Hatten, the current writer of attached to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum as well as the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4. Hatten is also in charge of scripting Zack Snyder‘s Army of the Dead, which is slated to make its Netflix debut sometime in 2021.
As you’re likely to know, Foxx and Netflix became fast friends after the In Living Color veteran starred in the streamer’s PROJECT POWER. Built for Netflix as a superhero drama, Project Power tells the story of what happens when a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes hits the streets of New Orleans. Foxx plays ex-soldier Art in the film, who teams with a teenage dealer and a local cop to take down the group responsible for the drug’s creation.
