Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) is set to star as a slayer in Netflix’s upcoming vampire film Day Shift.
Directed by J.J. Perry, the film will follow a hard-working blue-collar dad (Foxx) who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted eight-year-old daughter. But his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income—hunting and killing vampires.
Foxx will also executive produce Day Shift, which was written by Tyler Tice, with revisions by Shay Hatten. Chad Stahelski, Shaun Redick, and Yvette Yates Redick will serve as producers.
