Snoop Dogg, Meagan Good & more join Netflix’s vampire pic Dayshift
According to Deadline, Grammy-nominated rapper Snoop Dogg (Dolemite Is My Name), Meagan Good (Shazam!), Karla Souza (How to Get Away with Murder), and Scott Adkins (Debt Collectors) has been cast to join Oscar winner Jamie Fox in Netflix’s upcoming vampire thriller film Dayshift. In addition, Eric Lange and Zion Broadnax have also joined J.J. Perry’s feature directorial debut film. Further details about their characters are still being kept under wraps, but the film will center around a vampire hunter who is moonlighting as a pool cleaner during the day.
Day Shift centers around the story of a hard-working blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-year old daughter, but his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income, hunting and killing vampires as part of an international union of vampire hunters.
The film will be led by Jamie Foxx (Project Power), which will be the actor’s latest third project in the works as he is starring in the recently released sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! and the upcoming John Boyega-led sci-fi pic They Cloned Tyrone. He also is joined by Dave Franco (The Disaster Artist), Steve Howey (Shameless), C.S. Lee (Dexter), Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Society) and Oliver Masucci (Dark).
J.J. Perry will direct Day Shift from a screenplay written by Shay Hatten (John Wick 3 & 4, Army of the Dead) based on the original script penned by Tyler Tice. The film will be produced by John Wick director Chad Stahelski and Jason Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment, along with Impossible Dream Entertainment’s Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick. It will be executive produced by Foxx, Datari Turner, and Peter Baxter.
