Netflix recently announced more names to join the cast of Day Shift, a new film with Jamie Foxx on the streaming platform. Dave Franco, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Oliver Masucci, Steve Howey and CS Lee will be seen in production in roles yet to be released.
In the plot, a common man (played by Foxx) uses his job as a pool cleaner in the San Fernando Valley as a front for his true job of hunting and killing all the vampires he faces.
Gradually, it is discovered that he is part of an international union of vampire hunters with different mechanisms to exterminate this race of supernatural beings.
The project will mark the debut of J.J. Perry in the direction of feature films. He is well known in the audiovisual industry for working as a second-unit director on major productions, as well as coordinating the stunt work in the Fast and Furious franchise.
The scripts were developed by Tyler Tice, with text supervision by Shay Hatten.
