Jamie Foxx To Star As God In ‘Not Another Church Movie’
According to Deadline, Foxx is set to play the role of God in the upcoming comedy, which promises to be a refreshing take on the classic narrative of divine forces and temptation. The film, helmed by acclaimed director Johnny Mack, known for his ability to infuse creativity into traditional genres, will also see Rourke play the Devil.
“Not Another Church Movie” doesn’t just promise other star-studded performances from Kevin Daniels, Vivica A. Fox, Tisha Campbell, Jasmine Guy, Kyla Pratt, and Lamorne Morris; it also hints at thought-provoking themes.

This film is a unique blend of new and established talent, and we can’t wait to hear the laughs and for audiences to see the magic that happens on the big screen. This movie will not disappoint.”
Valerie McCaffrey, who serves as its executive producer, said, “The name talent that has come together for this fun comedy is unprecedented. You see all the actors having fun, especially Foxx playing God.”
Jamie Foxx Says He Went To ‘Hell And Back’
Foxx, who was hospitalized in April for what his daughter Corinne called a “medical complication” at the time, candidly revealed his recent harrowing health experience in an Instagram video to fans, describing it as a journey to “hell and back.”
The 55-year-old entertainer shared his deeply personal story in the video, shedding light on the physical and emotional challenges he faced during his health scare.
“I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back. I went through something that I thought I would never, ever go through,” Foxx shared, offering gratitude to fans.

“But I did go to hell and back. My road to recovery had some potholes as well but I’m coming back, and I’m able to work,” he added.

“I have a lot of people to thank… U just don’t know how much it meant… I will be thanking all of you personally… and if you didn’t know… GOD IS GOOD… all day every day,” Foxx continued before finishing the post with #swipeleft, #imbackandimbetter, and #nobaddays.
