Hollywood star Cameron Diaz is all set to come out from her retirement mode as she is all set to feature alongside Jamie Foxx in an OTT action-comedy film Back In Action. For the unversed, Diaz had earlier worked with Django Unchained star in the 1999 sports drama Any Given Sunday and in the 2014 remake of Annie which also marked her final film role before her sudden retirement. Now that the duo is all set to collaborate again for another drama, the fans are pretty much excited about the same.
Jamie Foxx’s announcement
Jamie Foxx was the one who announced Cameron Diaz’s return to cinema through his official Twitter handle. He shared an audio recording of his call with the actress who, it seems, can’t find words to let the world know that she is returning to the silver screen. She said, ‘I don’t know how to do this’ and we think that the fans can totally relate to her! As published in Variety, Foxx brought in someone who had a similar experience in retiring and then making a comeback like a pro.
We are talking about Tom Brady here who had retired from NFL earlier this year only to make a comeback by rejoining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after 40 days. He further wrote, “Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @CameronDiaz and I are BACK IN ACTION – our new movie with @NetflixFilm. Production starting later this year!!”
