Jamie Foxx is set to star in and executive produce Netflix’s upcoming vampire hunter comedy project Day Shift. Chad Stahelski (John Wick) is set to produce, and a filmmaker named JJ Perry will be making his directorial debut.
Foxx will portray a “hard working, blue collar dad who 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.”
Sounds like a fun concept and there’s no doubt that Foxx will have a fun time making it. It’s not hard to imagine Foxx in a role like this and I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
The script for the movie comes from Tyler Tice with current revisions by Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum).
