The always entertaining Jamie Foxx plays a secret vampire hunter in the upcoming action-horror-comedy film, Day Shift, from director J.J. Perry.
Foxx is a seasoned vampire hunter named Bud, who sees his home life with his wife and daughter failing, thanks in large part to his secret line of work.
While Bud’s family generally goes with the story that he works as a pool cleaner, in reality, he’s one of the many vampire hunters operating around the world to take out the blood-sucking ghouls for sizable bounties. Unlike Bud, who somehow managed to get himself booted from the union in the past, hunters like Big John Elliott (Snoop Dogg) count on their membership to get paid and stay involved in the larger fight against evil.
That’s right, Snoop Dogg also plays a vampire hunter in this wild flick. In addition to Snoop and Foxx, this movie co-stars Meagan Good and Dave Franco.
As for how the director landed Snoop? Well, he didn’t treat him like he’s Snoop.
I told Snoop when I met him, ‘Listen I’m not hiring Snoop Dogg, I’m hiring Calvin Broadus [the actor-rapper’s real name]’ and I think that really spoke to him. Everyone hires him to be that pot-smoking West Coast guy. I put a cowboy hat on him and I gave him the same swagger as my old platoon sergeant.
Day Shift will hit Netflix on August 12, 2022.
