Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz aren’t having a great time making their Netflix film Back in Action. Even though Diaz came out of retirement to shoot it, the problems surrounding the project have supposedly made her want to retire again. But that’s not all.


Along with the supposed scam and bomb threat that happened on the sets, another latest issue has created problems for the production team. Foxx isn’t doing well, as he was recently hospitalized after a health scare. Many fans are speculating that the actor’s health problems could be a result of the stress he has been enduring on the sets.

Previously, The Sun reported that authorities were called after some production members tried scamming Jamie Foxx out of 33,000 sterling pounds with a luxury Rolex watch. Here’s what the outlet reported:

“One staffer has been sacked, and there are investigations after someone tried to get access to £33,000 in cash from Jamie Foxx. It sounds as though they tried to offer up a Rolex watch as part of the deal but now there’s an investigation into everything going on.”

Reportedly, Foxx fired four production staff members from the film over this. An investigation was also launched by the makers of the Back in Action film. Along with this, there was allegedly a bomb scare when a World War II unexploded bomb was found on the London set when two action scenes were getting filmed.

All of this has made Cameron Diaz want to retire again. The Sun wrote, “She hates drama and confrontation. This is why she retired in the first place.” An update on Jamie Foxx’s current health status is awaited by fans. It remains to be seen how production on the film shapes up as well.

Back in Action is speculated to release in early 2024.
