Day Shift will mark the directorial debut of JJ Perry, who is best known for his work as a second-unit director and stunt coordinator for such action movie outings as The Fate of the Furious, Bloodshot and, the John Wick series, suggesting that action Sequences showing Foxx’s affinity for vampire hunting should impress audiences.
The script for Netflix’s Day Shift has been written by Tyler Tice, with revisions having been penned by Shay Hatten of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum fame. John Wick director Chad Stahelski is on board as a producer alongside Jason Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment; Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick for Impossible Dream Entertainment. Foxx is executive producing with Datari Turner and Peter Baxter. With so much influence from the team behind the modern action classic franchise, John Wick, Day Shift certainly has the action pedigree needed to make the movie a popular Netflix outing.
