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 has 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 later to announce his retirement.

“I’m nervous, but I don’t know how to do this. You know?” Diaz is heard saying on the call.

For its part, the streaming platform limited itself to posting a tweet stating that the actress is “officially de-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, 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) writing the script.

Díaz and Foxx previously worked together on Any Given Sunday (1999) and Annie (2014), which was their 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.
