Jamie Foxx Finds The Horror
For a new TV anthology

10 April 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

Jamie Foxx knows horror. After all he was in Valentine’s Day! Ahem. Sorry. Anyhoo, he’s diving back into TV, producing a new horror anthology that lacks a title but certainly has promise.

Working through his Foxxhole production company, he’ll write, direct and produce five episodes of the horror series for the US SyFy channel (which is announcing plenty of deals with big name creative types today). Taking after the likes of The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone (and, more recently, the Showtime channel’s Masters Of Horror series), the episodes will tell original, terrifying tales during the 31 Days Of Halloween programming marathon in the States.

“This is a project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’m so happy to see it come to life,” Foxx says in a statement picked up by Deadline. “Get ready to lose it when some special friends and I bring the scares this October, and who knows… maybe I’ll make a guest appearance or two along the way!”

So between scripts, shot calling, producing and possibly acting, he’s pretty much only leaving Key Grip and the catering staff jobs available.

Film-wise, Foxx will next show up as the president in White House Down (due September 6) and is shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which swings on to our screens on April 18 next year.
