Cameron Diaz is coming out of retirement for her first new movie since 2014’s
Annie. Diaz is best known for comedy roles, starring in a long string of successful projects after making her debut in 1994’s
The Mask with Jim Carrey. She’s best known for her roles in films like
There’s Something About Mary and the
Charlie’s Angels franchise, but also took notable parts in dramatic fare like Oliver Stone’s
Any Given Sunday and Martin Scorsese’s
Gangs of New York, as well as roles in
Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and as Princess Fiona in the
Shrek series.,Diaz’s last feature film role was the 2014 adaptation of
Annie, where she played Hannigan opposite Jamie Foxx’s Will Stacks. The film was a modest hit, but would be Diaz’s last role in film or television, opting to focus on her personal life, saying that she found peace
“because I was finally taking care of myself.” Although she never formally announced retirement, the actress simply stopped taking work, while becoming a wife (to Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden), mother, author, and entrepreneur.,Related: Why Cameron Diaz Retired From Acting,Diaz’s return was announced by Jamie Foxx, who will co-star with her in the aptly-titled action-comedy feature

Annie, as well as in

Baby Driver,
Just Mercy with Michael B. Jordan, and returned to the superhero genre to reprise the role of Electro in
Spider-Man: No Way Home. Foxx has found success with Netflix as well, starring in 2020’s
Project Power and the upcoming action-horror film
Day Shift later this year. It’s likely that Foxx’s positive experience with the streamer was a helpful selling point to pull Diaz back into the game.,Diaz is one of the most-beloved actresses of the last few decades and her charm has been missed, especially in the rom-com genre, of which she excelled. She’s no stranger to action roles, as her part in the
Charlie’s Angels films, as well as James Mangold’s
Knight and Day with Cruise have proven. Making her return in the action-comedy genre feels like the right fit and teaming up with Foxx is a welcome reunion that will surely help reintroduce
Diaz to the cinematic world that made her a star to begin with.,Next: Why Mortal Kombat Recast Cameron Diaz As Sonya Blade,Source: Jamie Foxx
