Netflix has shared first look images, a logline, and a cast list for the upcoming Back in Action. It will stream to the service on November 15th.

Article Summary

  • Netflix reveals first-look at 'Back In Action,' featuring Cameron Diaz's return to the screen.
  • Jamie Foxx teams up with Diaz as retired agents jumping back into a spy life.
  • The action-comedy echoes familiar themes, but the cast is promising.
  • Directed by Seth Gordon, 'Back In Action' to launch on Netflix, November 15th.

Netflix has shared some first-look images at a new film that brings Cameron Diaz back to acting for the first time in nearly a decade. It's pairing her up with Jamie Foxx and a great supporting cast; you can't ever say that Netflix doesn't find ways to bring in massive talent to these films that make no impact at all. The idea behind Back in Action is that Diaz and Foxx are retired secret agents who are parents now, and they have to do another job. I feel like we saw this movie, and it was directed by Robert Rodriguez, and the film was from the POV of the kids instead of the parents. The film is being pitched as an action-comedy as well, and while Diaz and Foxx both have great comedic timing when given the right script, with just the elevator pitch that we've been given, we have all seen this film before.
