Working as a stunt coordinator in prominent films such as The Fast and The Furious and Bloodshot, JJ Perry is about to make his directorial debut with Day Shift. In one of his recent posts on Instagram, we see Jamie Foxx performing CPR on a man. The plot of this film hasn’t been told yet but as per media sources it is based on a man, played by Jamie Foxx, who comes from blue-collar class and is working hard to raise his eight year old daughter. However, the twist is that his boring job of cleaning a pool in San Fernando Valley is a pretext for his real profession! And that is hunting and killing vampires. It is being speculated that Day Shift is going to be an exciting fun adventure with elements of action, comedy along with myths as per its producer named Shaun Redick.
