It looks like Jamie Foxx is making moves behind the lens as well as in front of it for television and film. We just discovered that Foxx has partnered with Deon Taylor to form No Brainer Films, a production company that will generate films and TV series at under $10 million per project.
The projects will be financed by Robert Smith, founder and managing principal of the private equity firm Vista Equity Partners.
We discovered that the venture hatched after Foxx and Taylor co-wrote and co-directed the TV series Tommy’s Little Girl, a mob drama that stars Selma Blair, Paul Sorvino, Tony Sirico and James Russo.
What’s interesting about this is we hear that Foxx will continue to partner in Foxx-King Entertainment while Taylor continues to run Deon Taylor Enterprises. (Taylor has written, directed and produced the upcoming horror thriller Chain Letter.)
Foxx is also prepping the new sketch comedy show for the FOX network, and he is also ramping up a new comedy show with Speedy as the host which will be shot this weekend in Sacramento. Foxx will next be seen reuniting with his The Soloist costar Robert Downey Jr. in the Todd Phillips-directed Warner Bros film Due Date.. Downey stars in that film with Zach Galifianakis, while Foxx plays a pivotal part in the road comedy.
