From the 1990s to the 2010s, Cameron Diaz was America's biggest sweetheart. After which she had a long break from acting. She co-starred with Jamie Foxx in the musical adaption of Annie in 2014, which marked the release of her last movie. However, Diaz's movie comeback, Back in Action, has been confirmed by Netflix, so the wait for her onscreen comeback is almost over.

Back in Action gets a release date

On November 15, 2024, Back in Action, starring Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, will make its platform debut. Over the past several years, Fox and Netflix have developed a strong partnership. Fox starred in many films for the streaming service, including Day Shift, a vampire horror thriller starring Dave Franco and Natasha Liu Bordizzo.

What is Back In Action about?

Back in Action, directed by Seth Gordon, centers on Emily (Diaz) and Matt (Foxx), a couple who, years after sacrificing their lives as CIA spies, find themselves drawn back into the world of espionage after their cover is blown. The cast also stars McKenna Roberts, Glenn Close, Andrew Scott, Jamie Demetriou, Kyle Chandler, and Rylan Jackson in addition to Diaz and Foxx.



After quitting Hollywood in 2014 to spend more time with her family, Diaz later announced that, after being convinced by Foxx, she would be making a comeback to the big screen in 2022 with Back in Action. The period of filming was December 2022–April of last year. But Foxx's rumored diva conduct on the set ruined principal photography, a charge that Diaz flatly refuted.

A major and unannounced health scare that Foxx had in April of last year further complicated matters; as a result, Back in Action had to shoot the remaining scenes starring Foxx with body doubles. Since then, Foxx has recovered completely.
