Jamie Foxx To Appear As God In “Not Another Church Movie’
Jamie Foxx is taking on the role of God in a new comedy flick opposite Mickey Rourke, who will play the devil, in Johnny Mack’s Not Another Church Movie.
The movie was already shot and completed prior to the current SAG-AFRTA and WAG strike and is slated for release later this year, Deadline reports. The cast also includes Kevin Daniels, Vivica A. Fox, Tisha Campbell, and Lamorne Morris.
The film follows the wild world of Taylor Pharry (Daniels), an ambitious young man given a holy mission from God to tell his family’s stories and inspire his community. The only problems: his family, community, and the Devil who has plans of his own.
James Michael Cummings and Jim Cardwell serve as producers alongside executive producer Valerie McCaffrey. Cummings praised Foxx’s addition to the film.
“We are thrilled to have Mr. Foxx be a part of this hilarious comedy and bring his incredible talent to the role of God, working with Foxx and Johnny Mack was a true blessing,” Cummings said in a statement.
“This film is a unique blend of new and established talent, and we can’t wait to hear the laughs and for audiences to see the magic that happens on the big screen. This movie will not disappoint.”
“The name talent that has come together for this fun comedy is unprecedented,” McCaffrey added.
“You see all the actors having fun, especially Foxx playing God.”
Foxx has still been appearing in films following his recent hospitalization and a video testimonial where he told fans he had been “to hell and back” amid his recovery. The Django Unchained star’s most recent films include the vampire hunter horror-comedy Day Shift, the sci-fi comedy They Cloned Tyrone, and the R-rated talking dog comedy Strays.
The actor’s last sighting was on a family vacation in Mexico following an updated video testimony where he said he was “thankful” and “finally starting to feel like myself.”
