Day Shift Release Date: When Is the Release?
J. J. Perry is best known for doing stunts in movies like John Wick: Chapter 2 and F9: The Fate of the Furious. His first movie as a director will be Day Shift, a fast-paced movie about a vampire hunter.
Shay Hatten, who wrote the Netflix Original Army of the Dead, and Tyler Tice wrote the script together. Jamie Foxx, who won an Oscar for Django Unchained, will play the lead role in Day Shift.
Even though this is Perry’s first time as a director, he has a lot of experience with stunts and martial arts, which means that the movie will be action-packed and full of practical effects.
Chad Stahelski, who made the movie John Wick and has worked with Perry many times before, will be one of the producers. Jamie Foxx and Peter Baxter will also be involved as executive producers.
Foxx says in the inside look teaser trailer that this movie will have a lot of “eating popcorn moments,” where the audience can’t take their eyes off the screen but keeps stuffing their faces with their favorite movie snacks. In this upcoming action-comedy thriller, J. J. Perry is putting a new spin on the traditional vampire myth. This article has all the information you need about Day Shift, which will be on Netflix in August 2022.
What Is Day Shift About?
Jamie Foxx plays a father who lives in San Fernando Valley and works as a pool cleaner to give his 8-year-old daughter a good life. At least, that’s what it seems like at first glance. In reality, he kills vampires to make money, and the pool cleaning job is just a front. He gets paid to go after vampires and gets paid when he brings back their fangs.
Who’s in the Day Shift Cast?
- Dave Franco as Seth
- Zion Broadnax as Paige
- Karla Souza as Paige
- Jamie Foxx as Bud Jablonski
- Snoop Dogg as Big John Elliott
- Meagan Good as Jocelyn
As we’ve already said, Jamie Foxx will play the main role in this movie, but the rest of the cast isn’t bad either. Paige, Foxx’s smart daughter, will be played by Zion Broadnax, who goes to Abbott Elementary. Steve Howey (Shameless) is listed in the cast, but his character’s name and role in the movie have not been revealed yet, just like the rest of the main characters.
Along with the famous Snoop Dogg, the list of unnamed characters also includes Dave Franco (The Now), Meagan Good (Shazam! ), Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Voyeurs), and C. S. Lee (Dexter). In addition to the more well-known actors, there are two other actors whose filmographies are more similar to those of the director, J. J. Perry.
Tetiana Gaidar, who will play Sophia in Day Shift, was the Tactical Weapons Trainer for the TV shows Resident Evil and Hunters, as well as the movie Borderlands, which is based on the same-named first-person looter/shooter game. Scott Adkins will be in Day Shift with Gaidar.
He has a lot of experience with fight choreography and stunt acting in movies like Ip Man 4: The Finale, Accident Man, and Accident Man 2. He will also be in John Wick: Chapter 4, which is coming out soon.
