Cameron Diaz returns to Hollywood

Big surprise in the Mecca of Cinema: Cameron Diaz, a legend of comedy and action movies, returns to Hollywood.

Eight-year retirement

The actress announced her retirement in 2018. By then, her last job had been four years earlier, when she played Miss Hannigan in 'Annie' in 2014. So her retirement lasted eight years.

She seemed to have gone for good

We believed she'd never return, but now the actress has signed with Netflix for a new production.

Netflix project: 'Back in Action'

The project, titled 'Back in Action,' stars Jamie Foxx along with Cameron Diaz. The director of the film is Seth Gordon ('How to Kill your Boss'). He also wrote the script for the new movie with Brendan O'Brien, as confirmed by Variety.

Action comedy

The film will be an action comedy in which Cameron Diaz is the antagonist of Jamie Foxx.

Third movie together

The couple will be working together more than two decades after first cooperating in the spectacular 'Any Given Sunday' in 1999. They also starred together in 'Annie' (2014).

A weird way to announce it

The complicity and friendship between Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx was clear from the way they announced Diaz's comeback together.

 

A 'private' conversation

Jamie Foxx tweeted a conversation between himself and Cameron Diaz, in which she comments on the anxiety she feels about her return to cinema.

An unexpected guest

In the shared conversation, Diaz confesses that she does not know how to announce her return. At that point, Jamie Foxx brings "someone who knows about these issues" into the conversation: Tom Brady.

Tom Brady, non-retirement expert

The NFL legend says he's "relatively successful in not retiring," and that is when Jamie Foxx leaves them to continue talking about the topic. However, the public does not get to see the rest of that conversation. A real cliffhanger.

Production starts in 2022

Following this puzzling tweet, Jamie Foxx confirmed that production on 'Back in Action' will begin this year.

Only Jamie Foxx could lure her back

Meanwhile, Cameron Diaz showed her happiness about the comeback on Instagram. "Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action! I can't wait for it to arrive. It's going to be great!"

A lot happened in those eight years

Over the last eight years, away from Hollywood and filming, Cameron Diaz had time to marry Benjamin Madden in 2015 and build a family with him.

Wedding, daughter and anonymity (kind of)

The couple had a daughter in 2019, Raddix, to whom Cameron Diaz dedicated herself full time since the birth.

Active retirement

Of course, whoever thinks that Cameron Diaz  has been living on the interest of her Hollywood millions, does not know the actress.

Successful writer

She wrote two fitness, health and self-help books: 'Love Your Body' (2013) and 'The Longevity Book' (2016). The latter reached number two on the list of New York Times best sellers.

If Cameron is happy, Hollywood is happy.

Now, Cameron Diaz returns to Hollywood. That would be good news in and of itself, but we are especially happy because she appears to be thrilled about it and ready for it.
