Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz's Back In Action production comes to halt

Another obstacle has befallen Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz starrer upcoming Netflix comedy.

According to reports, the creators of Back In Action have put a pause on the production after it was alleged that a staff member has been involved in a scam of over £33,000.

The police have been recruited to carry out an investigation as “it is thought the same worker may be linked to other attempts to obtain large sums of money from big stars in the past,” reported The Sun.

“This film has been a bit of a nightmare,” a source dished to the media outlet. “There have been a lot of delays, especially with the weather thanks to filming outdoors in London in winter, but the latest issue is a bit more sinister.”

“One staffer has been sacked, and there are investigations after someone tried to get access to £33,000 in cash from Jamie Foxx,” the insider continued.

They went on to explain that the scammer tried to offer a Rolex watch as part of the deal but “now there’s an investigation into everything going on.”

The somber update comes after it was reported that the Spiderman actor threw a temper tantrum on the set of the upcoming film, firing three major crew members in the process.

All this drama has led to Diaz second-guessing her comeback in Hollywood and might end up permanently retiring after the current commitment.
