Back in 2018, Diaz announced that she had retired from acting after her last role in Sony's adaptation of Annie. But prior to this formal announcement, she had actually stepped away from acting in 2014. In an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop via Vulture Magazine, Diaz said her decision to retire from acting was so she could "really focus" on her personal life, relationships, family, and friends.

On an Instagram story, Diaz revealed that she is stepping back to the limelight for this specific movie. "Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can't frickin wait it's gonna be a blast!"
