No Foxx given? Cameron Diaz‘s return to acting hit a major speed bump after her Oscar-winning co-star’s on-set “meltdown.”
Jamie Foxx has been increasingly upset with production issues on the “Back In Action” set, which resulted in the firing of several crew members, The Sun reported, adding that the film is “in chaos.”
“There have been some issues on set and Jamie has had a major meltdown over it all,” a source said. “He demanded the problems be sorted immediately and [fired] four of the production staff — as if that would magically improve the situation.”
Those supposedly canned included an executive producer, an assistant director, a unit director and Jamie’s driver.
“Some people working on it are totally fed up with how this has played out and Jamie has become pretty unpopular,” the source added.
The movie, which is being filmed in London, is set to be Cameron’s return to acting after essentially retiring. The actress’ last film was 2014’s “Annie,” which coincidentally also starred Jamie.
Jamie, who has worked with the “Charlie’s Angel” star on several other films, managed to convince Cameron to end her acting hiatus for “Back In Action.”
In a phone chat, that was released online, Cameron said: “Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action. I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!”
