After an eight-year hiatus, Cameron Diaz is making movies again.
Diaz, who officially confirmed her retirement from Hollywood in 2018, will star in the new Netflix film “Back in Action” alongside Jamie Foxx. The two previously starred together in 2014’s “Annie,” Diaz’s final feature film appearance.
“(Jamie Foxx) only you could get me back in action,” the actress wrote in an Instagram story after the announcement. “Can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast!”
Netflix hasn’t set a release date for the film yet, but Foxx wrote on Twitter that production will begin this year.
Foxx celebrated the return of Diaz on Twitterposting a recording of the two chatting about her comeback.
“I feel excited, but I don’t know how to do this, you know?” said Diaz in the clip.
Foxx then brought Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s quarterback Tom Brady to the call. Brady — who won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots — retired earlier this year but came out of retirement just weeks later.
“I spoke to Jamie and he said you need some tips to retire. I’ve been relatively successful at lifting your retirement,” Brady joked.
While Diaz hasn’t been as active in Hollywood in recent years, Diaz has continued to launch an organic wine label.
Last year, Diaz stated that as a mother, she could no longer imagine being on a movie set 16 hours a day.
“Will I ever make another movie? I’m not looking for, but should I? I don’t know. I have no idea. Maybe. Never say never,” she said at the time.
Diaz married Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden in 2015 and the two have one child together, Raddix, born in 2020.
