“Jamie is wildly creative, funny and brilliant, he walks the walk, he talks the talk and we are so proud to be in this partnership with Jamie and Datari. We already have a few projects secretly going and this is only the beginning.”
One of the projects that Paintach could be hinting is an untitled action thriller written by Juel Taylor and Tony Rettenmaier of which Foxx will star in a leading role.
