Filmmakers need those actors who can uplift a film just with their presence. Hollywood actor, Jamie Foxx certainly fits the bill, and his Project Power director, Henry Joost vouchsafed this. The director talked about how Jamie is an entertainer and his impact on the film.
In a statement released, Joost said: “Jamie made me laugh harder than I’ve ever laughed in a professional setting. He’s an amazing entertainer on every level, but especially as an actor. He brought so much humanity to this role. You just can’t help but root for him on his journey.”
Jamie and Joe are incredibly different,” said Joost. “They have totally different styles which I think is why they’re so great together and why they’ve had so much fun working together. Jamie literally has intro music every time he walks on set. He carries around this backpack with a speaker in it, and every time he walks on set, you hear some incredible song.”
Concluding about him he added, “When it comes to Joe, you turn around and realize he’s been standing right behind you for five minutes watching the shot you’ve been setting up.”
Project Power is scheduled to come out on Netflix on August 14. Apart from Jamie Foxx it stars, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback in lead roles. The film revolves around a mysterious drug, giving superhuman powers to people who eat it, for five minutes. However, there’s a catch as it may kill the person too.
Along with Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman has directed the film.
Actor, Jamie Foxx’s last film was ‘Just Mercy’ along with Michael B. Jordan. The actor is also an Oscar winner and has won the Best Actor Oscar Award for Ray (2004). His other well-known films are Django Unchained and Baby Driver among others.
