Foxx recruited NFL star Tom Brady, who briefly retired in February, to help bring Diaz out of retirement for the new project.

On Twitter, Foxx shared a recording of a conversation with Diaz where he surprised the actress by bringing Brady into the call.

"Cameron I hope you aren't mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @CameronDiaz and I are BACK IN ACTION - our new movie with @NetflixFilm. Production starting later this year!!" Foxx captioned the post.

Diaz has a 2-year-old daughter, Raddix, with her husband, musician Benji Madden.
