The request for a response from PEOPLE was not immediately answered by a Foxx spokesperson.

The 55-year-old actor was most recently spotted on the set of Cameron Diaz’s next Netflix film Back In Action. The much-awaited movie will mark Diaz’s return to the big screen after 2014’s Annie adaptation, which also starred Foxx.

The narrative of Back in Action has been kept under wraps by Netflix, but an insider told media that Foxx and the Charlie’s Angels actress “have great chemistry” on filming.

According to a Hollywood insider who previously spoke to the media, Foxx had a key role in persuading the actress to take on another project. She has known and worked with Jamie Foxx for years, so when the opportunity to collaborate with him on this project arose, she chose to take it.
