Netflix’s Day Shift will be directed by first-time director JJ Perry who has worked as a second unit director and stunt coordinator for movies like Fast and Furious 9, The Fate of the Furious, Bloodshot and the John Wick movies. The project will be produced by Chad Stahelski and Jason Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment and Shaun Redick (BlackKklansman) and Yvette Yates Redick (Malicious) of Impossible Dream Entertainment.
The film is set in a new America divided by quadrants, in which a power-hungry corporation has taken over the conventional prison system and replaced it with a system of deadly watches. Criminals are the new law enforcers that carry out all forms of capital punishment in order to regain their place in society.
Price is producing with Latavius Powell through their newly-launched entertainment company Powell and Price Productions, alongside Wonderfilm Media’s Jeff Bowler and Bret Saxon. Richard Salvatore is an executive producer.
