The first trailer has dropped for Netflix’s upcoming satirical conspiracy film, “They Cloned Tyrone,” starring Jamie Foxx, John Boyega and Teyonah Parris.

A synopsis for the film online reads, “A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio (Boyega, Parris and Foxx) onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper.”

On Monday morning, Netflix dropped the first official posters, featuring Foxx, Boyega and Parris.

Boyega’s social media account says that the filming on the project wrapped up in April 2021, and the long-awaited film will debut at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) June 14.

Then it will head to Netflix for a July 21 streaming premiere.

Variety reports, “Foxx stars as Slick Charles, Boyega as Fontaine, Parris as Yo-Yo and Tyler Antonius as Tyrone. The cast also features Kiefer Sutherland, David Alan Grier, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Joshua Mikel and James Moses Black.

‘They Cloned Tyrone’ is the directorial debut of Juel Taylor, who co-wrote the film with Tony Rettenmaier. Prior to serving as co-screenwriter on this film, Taylor also penned ‘Creed II,’ ‘Shooting Stars’ and ‘Young. Wild. Free.’

Foxx also serves as producer alongside Charles D. King, Stephen ‘Dr.’ Love and Datari Turner, with executive producers Mark R. Wright, Kim Roth, Jack Murray, Federal Films, Dana Sano and Monte Lipman. James Lopez and Poppy Hanks are co-executive producers.”


This marks the first film to debut from Foxx since he was hospitalized earlier this year for unknown “medical complications.”

His hospitalization has ignited a firestorm of conspiracies and speculation.

Rumors have dogged the Hollywood heavyweight that he’s blind and paralyzed from a COVID-19 vaccine, but Foxx’s family and his rep have suggested that those rumors are “inaccurate.”

That hasn’t stopped people from speculating, however.

Anti-vax crusaders online picked up Foxx’s story, insisting that he was blinded and paralyzed by complications from the vaccine, and trying to turn his story into their latest proof of the vaccine’s “harmfulness.”

But Foxx’s daughter has blasted media coverage of Foxx’s medical complications, suggesting that her father is doing well and even playing pickeball.

But not long after she suggested that her father was well, a report said that he was in a rehab facility that specializes in recovery from stroke and stroke symptoms – which could include paralysis and/or blindness.

For now, Foxx’s health status remains speculation and rumor.

But the “They Cloned Tyrone” is no rumor – and the first official trailer has arrived.

You can watch the trailer above.

To catch the premiere of the film, tune in to Netflix on July 21 and stream it right from home.
