Cameron Diaz's comeback movie confirms Netflix release date

Netflix has unveiled the release date for Cameron Diaz's comeback movie.

The streamer confirmed during its Upfront presentation on Wednesday (May 15) that Diaz's film Back in Action will be released on November 15, 2024.

The Charlie's Angels star has come out of retirement for her first movie since 2014's Annie remake to star with Jamie Foxx in the action comedy.

In Back in Action, Jamie and Cameron play former CIA agents who gave up their globe-trotting lifestyle to start a family.

A decade on, the former agents are suddenly thrust back into the world of international espionage when their cover is blown.

Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief filmmaker Seth Gordon has penned the Back in Action script alongside Brendan O'Brien (Bad Neighbours and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem), with Gordon also on board to direct.

Production was impacted last year when Jamie Foxx was hospitalised suddenly for a major medical emergency. He has since said he is "thankful" to have survived such an "unexpected dark journey".

There were also accusations about on-set tensions while filming Back in Action, though Foxx has been defended publicly by Cameron Diaz.

"I really hate all of the things that were being said about our set," Diaz said on the Lipstick on the Rim podcast. "You just want to scream at the top of your lungs, like, 'What are you talking about?'"

The actor added: "The hiccups that happened throughout production are the natural kinds of things that happen, but nothing got delayed other than, obviously, toward the end [when Foxx got sick]."

Aside from Diaz and Foxx, Back in Action also features All of Us Strangers' Andrew Scott, eight-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close and Barbie's Jamie Demetriou in supporting roles.

Back in Action will stream on Netflix worldwide on November 15, 2024.
