Jamie Foxx and SyFy have worked out a deal to put together a horror anthology that will air on the network. The Django Unchained actor will be going through his Foxxhole Productions in order to put the mini-series together.
Talking about the project, the Academy Award winner said that, “this is a project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and I’m so happy to see it come to life.” The actor added that he was going to be bringing some of his big name friends along for the series and that he might even be making a guest appearance or two.
The project has been described as a five episode anthology that is in the same vein as Tales from the Crypt and the Twilight Zone. The currently unnamed project appears to be one that will examine the dangers of engaging in actions centered around the seven deadly sins.
While there hasn’t been a ton of information about what the project will entail, it will reportedly cover subjects like envy, jealousy and superficiality.
Jamie Foxx may not be the star of the show, but he will certainly have plenty to do as its rumored that he will be contributing as a writer and director along with producing the show.
Foxx has been plenty busy outside of this particular project. While he’s garnered most of the attention for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s latest revenge based flick, the actor has also been cast as the super villain Electro in the Amazing Spiderman 2 movie.
The new horror anthology will have the first of the five, 30 minute episodes air during SyFy 31 days of Halloween promotion that the network puts together every October.
