Netflix shares first look at Cameron Diaz's first role in 10 years after actor came out of retirement

Netflix shares first look at Cameron Diaz's first role in 10 years after actor came out of retirement

Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx star together in a new Netflix film.

Netflix has finally shared a first look at Cameron Diaz's return to the big screen in what will be her first role in 10 years.

Amid retirement plans, last year it was reported that Diaz had been filming in Atlanta, Georgia, for her an upcoming Netflix movie alongside Jamie Foxx.

This comes after the White House Down star, 55, made his first public appearance in December after being hospitalised earlier in the year due to health complications.

Foxx was in LA to accept the Vanguard Award at the Critics Choice Association's Celebration of Cinema & Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements event.

"I've been through some things," Foxx said. "It's crazy; I couldn't do that six months ago. I couldn't actually walk."

"It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It's different.

"I wouldn't wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it's tough when it's almost over. ... I saw the tunnel. I didn't see the light. It was hot in that tunnel, too; I don't know where I was going'."

Jamie Foxx made his first public appearance in December following health complications earlier that year.

Now, the new comedy flick - titled Back In Action - will mark Diaz's return to acting, despite having plans to retire.

Her last on-screen role was a decade ago in the 2014 Annie, again alongside Foxx.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Diaz said: “I did that for so long, it’s kind of like the process, I kind of just fell back into it. But it feels a little bit different.

“The last movie I made was Annie with Jamie, and so the first movie back is this film with Jamie.

“He’s so great, he’s so easy, he’s so professional, he’s so talented, and just being able to work with him.”

Earlier today (1 February) Netflix provided us with our first look at the movie with a suited and booted photo of the pair.

"Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx star in BACK IN ACTION – coming later this year to Netflix," they said on X.

Netflix shared a sneak-peak of the pair in Back In Action.

"Years after giving up life in the CIA to start a family, these former spies are dragged back into the world of espionage when their cover is blown. Also starring Kyle Chandler, Glenn Close, Andrew Scott, and Jamie Demetriou."

Foxx previously revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he persuaded Diaz to come out of retirement.

"Cameron is such an incredible force and she has done so much in this business," he said.

"We love her. So it was literally, 'Do you wanna have some fun? Just have some fun!' And I think that's what brought her to it," he told the outlet.

"We miss special moments sometimes in our business, and I think this is a special moment.

"So we're so happy that it's happening and looking forward to it."
