Jamie Foxx is back in Atlanta and “Back in Action” finishing the Netflix movie that was working on when he got sick and was hospitalized some 10 months ago.

Entertainment Tonight obtained photos of Foxx and Cameron Diaz on site here in Atlanta filming “Back in Action,” finishing scenes for the movie that was delayed by Foxx’s illness.

“Foxx and Diaz were filming a physical scene in which they had to jump out of a van and run into a building, proving that the actor is on the mend from last year’s ailment,” ET reported.

Foxx was rushed to an Atlanta hospital in April for an ailment that has yet to be made public.

During the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema and Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements in December, Foxx surprised the audience and showed up in person to accept an award.

It was the first time he spoke publicly about his health scare.


“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It’s different,” Foxx said. “It’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago. I couldn’t actually walk.”

Foxx spent a few weeks in the hospital here in Atlanta before moving to a rehab facility in Chicago.

“I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy, because it’s tough when you almost... When it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel,” Foxx said. “I saw the tunnel. I didn’t see the light. It was hot in that tunnel, so I didn’t know where I was going. S***, am I going to the right place? I seen the devil goin, ‘C’mon, now,’” Foxx said during his acceptance speech.

A source told People Magazine that Foxx wanted to see the movie through to the end.

“For Jamie, the show must go on and he has always been eager to see this project completed,” the source said.

“Jamie is indeed back on set and shooting through February,” another source told People. “He looks and feels fantastic.”
