Jamie Foxx has a Due Date

He's joining Robert Downey Jr in the comedy

It'll be a Soloist reunion on the set of Todd Phillips' new comedy Due Date as Jamie Foxx is joining Robert Downey Jr in the cast.

The film - sort of Planes, Trains & Automobiles meets Nine Months (hopefully more the former than the latter) finds Downey Jr racing home to be with his wife (Michelle Monaghan) when she gives birth.

But his only way back to her is hitching a ride with an annoying college slacker (Zach Galifianakis).

Foxx has signed on to play Downey Jr's best mate - a former flame of Monaghan, who secretly still keeps in touch with her. Can anyone say comic complications?

It kicks off shooting shortly in Atlanta, New Mexico and LA.
