After releasing an action-comedy 'The Man From Toronto' featuring Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson on June 24, 2022, Netflix is blessing us with another movie titled 'Day Shift' that will be released on August 12, 2022. It is being directed by the renowned stunt coordinator JJ Perry. Although Perry has been a stunt coordinator, actor, and assistant director, 'Day Shift' is his directorial debut. Unlike the last movie on Netflix 'The Man from Toronto' which had a budget of $75 million, 'Day Shift's budget is $100 million. The movie is produced by 87North Productions and Impossible Dream Entertainment.
The movie revolves around a man named Bud Jablonski (Foxx) who works as a pool cleaner in Los Angeles. However, his other job is much more interesting because he hunts vampires which gives him the kind of money he needs to provide for his daughter.
