Snoop Dogg Joins Jamie Foxx In Vampire Horror ‘Day Shift’

Even an Oscar winner needs a strong ensemble cast to help him hunt down vampires.

And that’s just what Jamie Foxx–executive producer and star of the upcoming Netflix vampire comedy Day Shift–got this week. Entertainer Snoop Dogg leads a laundry list of cast members who have signed on for the film, as reported by Deadline.

Joining Snoop Dogg in the ensemble this week were Scott Adkins (The Intergalactic Adventures of Max Cloud), Meagan Good (Minority Report), Karla Souza (How to Get Away With Murder), Eric Lange (Antebellum) and child actor Zion Broadnax (Sydney to the Max).

Several other actors–Natasha Liu Berdizzo (The Society), Oliver Masucci (Dark), Steve Howey (Shameless) and C.S. Lee (Dexter)–had been cast previously.

Foxx plays the blue-collar father of a “quick-witted” eight-year-old girl who holds down two jobs–one mundane and the other…different. He cleans pools in the San Fernando Valley by day and, in order to provide a good life for his little girl, slays vampires by night as part of an international union of vampire hunters. Those union jobs are the best.

The movie will mark the directorial debut of J.J. Perry, best known as the second-unit director and stunt coordinator for the successful John Wick franchise. The screenplay is from Tyler Tice, with revisions by Shay Hatten.

Chad Stahelski (also from John Wick) and Jason Spitz are producing alongside Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick. Foxx, Batari Turner and Peter Baxter serve as executive producers.

There is no debut date yet for Day Shift on Netflix, so keep reading Horror News Network for all updates on the film.
