Foxx Talks Miami Vice "It's going to redefine cool." February 09, 2005 - Contact Music chatted with Oscar-nominee Jamie Foxx about his next project, the big-screen version of Miami Vice. The crime drama will be written and directed by Foxx's Ali and Collateral director Michael Mann. Foxx and his future co-star Colin Farrell (who will play Det. Ricardo Tubbs and Sonny Crockett, respectively) have reportedly already developed good chemistry together in their early meetings with Mann. "The chemistry between us is already there, like it was with me and Tom Cruise in Collateral, so making this movie is going to be a total blast," said Foxx. "And it's going to redefine cool. You're going to see our Crockett and Tubbs suits and be like, 'I want those.' You'll see our car and you'll go, 'I want one of those.' And as for our woman, man, you're gonna be like, 'Now I gotta get me some of that.'" Miami Vice begins filming in April/May for a July 28, 2006 release.
