We’re excited for Netflix’s next crop of original films. The upcoming action picture Day Shift, featuring Jamie Foxx, seems to be one that everybody is excited about. We’ve been keeping a tally of every fresh piece of information about the film that’s been revealed.
J.J. Perry directs Day Shift, which marks his debut directorial film. Tyler Tice authored the initial script, which Shay Hatten rewrote. The movie was made by 87North Productions & Impossible Dream Entertainment. Executive producers include Jamie Foxx, Datari Turner, and Peter Baxter.
You’ll be even more thrilled to watch the film after you discover who else is in the cast.
We’ve covered all that you need to know about Day Shift down below.
About Day Shift
Jamie Foxx plays a father inside the San Fernando Valley who works as a pool cleaner in order to provide a better life for his 8-year-old kid. At least, that’s how it appears on the surface.
In actuality, he utilizes the pool-cleaning job to hide his true source of revenue: the vampire killer. He is effectively being paid to track out vampires and collect their fangs.
On June 7, 2022, Netflix published an “inside peek” at Day Shift, which contains behind-the-scenes videos of certain practical effects used in the film.
As he discusses his response to recording some of the sequences, Jamie Foxx provides a far better visual example of his term “munching popcorn moments.”
Netflix also released a humorous behind-the-scenes film for Geeked Week.
We expected that the action flick will arrive on Netflix this summer. Our forecast appears to have been correct, as Netflix has confirmed that Day Shift will be available on Netflix on August 12!
The following is the entire major cast list:
• Jamie Foxx
• Dave Franco
• Natasha Liu Bordizzo
• Oliver Masucci
• Steve Howey
• C.S. Lee
On April 15, 2021, Netflix announced new cast additions.
• Meagan Good
• Karla Souza
• Scott Adkins
• Eric Lange
• Zion Broadnax
• Snoop Dogg
The plot revolves around a diligent father who desires to provide a happy life for his kid, but his pool maintenance job is a mere façade for his true career, which is hunting and slaying vampires.
This is an action picture, but there’ll be lots of humorous aspects, especially with Jamie Foxx as the primary hero.
