Jamie Foxx’s Next Netflix Project Casts Glenn Close & Kyle Ch&ler


Back in Action’s plot is under wraps, but Close & Ch&ler have been cast in undisclosed roles.

Glenn Close Kyle Ch&ler Back in Action

Back in Action, Jamie Foxx’s action comedy that’s set to bring Cameron Diaz out of retirement, has added two new cast members. Reportedly, Kyle Ch&ler & Glenn Close have been cast in the film in undisclosed roles. Back in Action was announced to be in the works at Netflix back in July of this year. Foxx seemed eager to announce Back in Action, as well as Diaz’s return from retirement, & he announced that production on the film would be starting later this year.

The picture has had very few details revealed since this initial announcement, meaning that Ch&ler & Close’s casting is the first news on the project in quite a while – & since Foxx stated that production would be starting late in the year, it probably is close to or has already begun its production cycle.

The news about Ch&ler & Close’s casting was broken by Deadline, which did not list the nature of their roles. The publication noted that the plot of the film was being kept under wraps, but stated that Seth Gordon, who worked on Horrible Bosses, is directing based on a script by Brendan O’Brien (Neighbors). Gordon will also be producing alongside Beau Bauman, Jenno Topping, Peter Chernin. Foxx will be executive producing alongside Datari Turner, O’Brien, Sharla Sumpter Bridgett, & Tim Lewis.

The film is not the only Netflix collaboration Foxx has been a part of. Foxx was previously announced to be playing a vampire hunter in Netflix’s new movie Day Shift, which released on August 12. Day Shift was also an action comedy film, albeit a supernatural one – Back in Action does not appear to share its supernatural sensibilities.

Foxx is known for taking on action roles. Just recently, Foxx starred alongside Tom Holl& in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Meanwhile, Diaz is known for her comedic roles. It wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that the two may be playing co-leads, perhaps even romantic co-leads.

Close is known for a vast array of projects; while some are comedic, others are dramatic. Her role is definitely up in the air, but it’s likely an actress of her caliber isn’t going to be a minor role. An actress like Glenn Close isn’t usually hired for cameos (Guardians of the Galaxy notwithst&ing). Meanwhile, Ch&ler is known more for action-oriented movies, as shown by his role in last year’s Godzilla vs. Kong.
