'They Cloned Tyrone': Jamie Foxx And Teyonah Parris Join John Boyega In Netflix Sci-Fi Pic

Jamie Foxx and Teyonah Parris have joined the cast of Netflix and MACRO's They Cloned Tyrone. They join the previously cast John Boyega, who was tapped for the film last year after Brian Tyree Henry exited the project.

It is the directorial debut of Creed 2 screenwriter Juel Taylor, who also penned this script with Tony Rettenmaier. The film will center on a "series of eerie events that thrusts an unlikely trio (Boyega, Foxx, Parris) onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper."

MACRO won a bidding war for the project and then developed it, with Netflix buying it.

Producers include Foxx, Datari Turner, along with MACRO founder and CEO Charles D. King, Stephen “Dr.” Love, Taylor, Rettenmaier and Kim Roth. MACRO's Mark R. Wright and Jack Murray are executive producing.

Deadline first reported this news.
