Dave Franco, the American actor best known for the Now You See Me series and The Disaster Artist, along with Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Voyeurs), Oliver Masucci (Dark), Steve Howey (Shameless) and CS Lee (Dexter) joined Jamie Foxx as cast members of the upcoming Netflix film Day Shift.
The streaming giant issued a press release on Thursday to announce the ensemble cast of the upcoming vampire drama.
According to Netflix, Foxx will be starring as a hard-working blue-collar father who wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted daughter, but his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income- hunting and killing vampires as part of an international union of vampire hunters.
Day Shift is helmed by debutant director JJ Perry, who worked second unit director and stunt coordinator for films including Fast & Furious 9, The Fate of the Furious, Bloodshot, and the John Wick franchise.
Tyler Tice has written the script of Day Shift, with revisions by the American screenwriter and producer Shay Hatten who is best known for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and upcoming films Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, and John Wick: Chapter 4.
In 2017, Tice won the Slamdance Writing Competition Grand Prize for his script Day Shift under the horror category at the annual awards ceremony that was held at the Writers Guild of America West in Los Angeles.
Chad Stahelski, who has previously worked with Perry on the John Wick Franchise, and Jason Spitz for 87 Eleven Entertainment along with Shaun Redick (Get Out, BlackKklansman) and Yvette Yates Redick (Malicious) for Impossible Dream Entertainment will be producing Day Shift.
Foxx will also be the film’s executive producer, along with Datari Turner and Peter Baxter (Q: Inside the Storm).
The release date of Day Shift has not yet been announced.
