Netflix Film “Back in Action” Mark Cameron Diaz’s Return to Acting

According to Variety, Cameron will return in an action-comedy titled Back in Action with Jamie Foxx. The two actresses will reunite for the first time in almost a decade, having previously worked together in the 1999 movie Any Given Sunday and the 2014 remake of Annie.

The movie will be directed by film director Seth Gordon from a script he co-wrote with Brendan O’Brien, and the minutiae related to the plot of the movie haven’t been revealed yet. Co-executive producer Jamie is producing the film.

Foxx revealed the news on Twitter by sharing a call he had with Diaz where she said she felt “so anxious” but also “excited” about returning to the big screen.

To Make Life More Manageable, She Quit Acting In August 2021

After realizing how much of her life she wasn’t touching and managing, the actress decided to stop her acting career. At the height of her acting career, Cameron Diaz had no regrets about exiting the spotlight so she could focus on other aspects of her life.

In an episode of Kevin Hart’s Peacock talk show Hart to Heart, Diaz talked about what led her to give up her career, asking, “What makes you want to stop? According to the former movie star, who last starred in 2014’s Annie, you have to rely on others when you do something at a high level for a long time. She noted that at around 40, she realized “so many parts of my life…that I wasn’t touching.”

She Enthused About How Much Fun It Is To Act

However, Diaz noted that performing is still a passion for her. She said, “It’s fun to do. Despite loving acting, she added that she craved more ease and control over her day-to-day life.

She explained that she wanted to manage her life on her terms. In a day, I literally do what I can handle by myself.” The former actress explained that ever since that change, “I feel whole,” and now she has time to do “all those things I didn’t have time for before.” Meeting her husband Benji Madden and having their daughter Raddix in December 2019 are just some of the things on her mind.
