Jamie Foxx is one of the biggest veterans in Hollywood. He’s starred in superhero films such as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and MCU’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. Jamie Foxx also believes that the reason his 2016 movie, about two basketball enthusiasts, has been on hold for so long is because of cancel culture.

“All-Star Weekend,” a movie about two superfans who score tickets to the NBA event in Los Angeles, stars Jamie and Jeremy Piven. It was intended to premiere in 2019, but it hasn’t yet, and there is no official information on the holdup. According to Jamie, the reason the film has been delayed may be be that the subject matter isn’t politically conscious enough for the times.

Foxx told CinemaBlend that it has been challenging given the landscape of comedy. The rumor is that a white star was cast to play a Mexican male. He believes that the movie might be a fantastic approach to reduce the tension.

It’s been tough with the lay of the land when it comes to comedy. We’re trying to break open the sensitive corners where people go back to laughing again.

Benicio del Toro, Gerard Butler, and Eva Longoria are among the cast members, and Robert Downey Jr. plays a Mexican man. Jamie, who among other parts in the movie portrays a white racist cop, believed RDJ was the right choice for the part after seeing him in “Tropic Thunder” as a white man dressed in blackface. However, the actor reportedly took some persuasion before agreeing to play the part. Check out the photos and video below.
