Foxx teased the film and Diaz's casting on Twitter

He posted audio of a conversation he had with Diaz and Tom Brady.

“I don’t know how to do this, you know?” says Diaz of ‘unretiring.’

“I was talking to Jamie, and he said you needed a few tips on how to unretire. And I am relatively successful and unretiring,” said Brady.

 

Diaz then wrote on her Instagram story, "Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!”
