Exclusive: Exciting News for Jamie Foxx's Day Shift Sequel Revealed by Netflix Director

Jamie Foxx's Day Shift sequel receives an exciting update from the director of the Netflix movie Fans eagerly anticipate what the next installment could bring in this thrilling and action-packed sequel

Jamie Foxx's Day Shift sequel receives an exciting update from director J.J. Perry. Initially released on Netflix in 2022, the film follows Bud Jablonski (played by Foxx), a devoted father who uses his regular job in the San Fernando Valley as a cover to hunt and eliminate vampires. The impressive cast of Day Shift includes Dave Franco, Meagan Good, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Karla Souza, Steve Howey, Scott Adkins, and Snoop Dogg. With a strong performance on the streaming platform and positive feedback from viewers who appreciated the movie's unique blend of horror and comedy, anticipation for a potential Day Shift follow-up has been steadily growing.

During a recent Corridor Crew video, Perry briefly discusses his upcoming projects and touches upon the Day Shift sequel. The director expresses his desire to continue working on a second film and mentions his intention to secure a writer from John Wick: Chapter 4. Check out Perry's comments regarding the Day Shift sequel below:

"We are hopefully going to do Night Shift. We just put that pitch out there, we’re hoping to get the writer who did John Wick 4."

What A Day Shift Sequel Could Look Like

Prior to its release, Foxx mentioned the possibility of producing additional Day Shift movies, indicating ongoing discussions. While the film received mixed reviews from critics, it gained significant popularity among viewers, securing the top spot on Netflix's Top 10 charts. The movie delved into Bud's relationship with his family, as he continued to hunt vampires to support his daughter and ex-wife. Ultimately, Bud managed to save them from Audrey (Souza). Given their survival in the events of Day Shift and Seth's (Franco) transformation into a vampire, a potential sequel could witness the reunion of all the characters as they unite to combat a new adversary.

Perry, who has previous experience in stunt work, crafted several memorable action sequences for the movie, leaving audiences eager for more in the upcoming follow-up. While it remains uncertain which writer of John Wick: Chapter 4 he was referring to, it is possible that Shay Hatten, who worked on the script for the first Day Shift film, could be involved. Another screenwriter, Michael Finch, known for his contributions to Predators and American Assassin, has also been part of the project.

Devoted fans of the original film will undoubtedly be thrilled by this recent update regarding the Day Shift sequel. It will be intriguing to witness the creative collaboration between Foxx and Perry and how they will further explore Bud's character. Additionally, one cannot help but wonder who will ultimately be enlisted to write the screenplay and the potential impact it may have on Day Shift 2.
