On Saturday, Foxx was pictured on set in Atlanta, walking alongside Diaz, 51. Back in Action began filming in December 2022, with Foxx and Diaz spotted doing various scenes around London.

Production was then moved to Atlanta, before Foxx’s daughter, Corinne issued a statement on behalf of the family in April revealing that the star had faced a "medical complication.”

The statement, which was posted to Instagram, read: "'We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday [Apr. 11]."

"Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers," the statement continued. "The family asks for privacy during this time."

Back In Action is hotly anticipated as it will be the first big-screen project Diaz has starred in since 2014's Annie remake, which also featured Foxx.

Another insider told PEOPLE in 2022 that the Charlie's Angels actress and Foxx "have great chemistry" on set and he was "instrumental" in getting her to sign up for the action comedy.

"When this project came along, she was pursued by Jamie Foxx, who she has known and worked with for years, she decided to go for it," said the source.
