The film's co-producer Datari Turner revealed that Foxx is "doing amazing" and noted that the Grammy winner will be back to work "very soon."

"He's in really, really good shape and spirits. And he'll be back on the screen. He'll be back to work very soon," Turner stated.

The update comes amid confusing speculation over the Unpredictable singer's status as he hasn't been publicly seen since his April hospitalization.

Conflicting reports have claimed that Foxx's health scare was near-fatal, yet his family has disputed these allegations as his A-list friends have pleaded for fans to give the Oscar winner time to address the incident when he's ready.
