Jamie Foxx Serves Laughs, Justice In New Film 'The Burial'


Jamie Foxx

A film that entertains, inspires and is based on true events, count us in! The upcoming film starring the powerhouse duo of Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones, promises to check off all these boxes. Inspired by true events, The Burial will take audiences on a journey that mixes comedy, drama, and social justice, all wrapped up in a heartwarming narrative.


The Burial centers around Jeremiah O'Keefe, portrayed by Jones, who plays the role of a funeral home owner. When a simple handshake deal goes terribly wrong, O'Keefe's family business is left in jeopardy. To save his livelihood and honor his family's legacy, O'Keefe decides to take action.

In a twist of fate, he crosses paths with the charismatic and smooth-talking attorney Willie E. Gary, portrayed by Foxx. Gary, known for his charm and legal skills, becomes O'Keefe's unlikely ally in a battle to save the funeral home. Their alliance sets the stage for a story that is as much about the camaraderie between two vastly different individuals as it is about seeking justice.


The best part about The Burial is that it's inspired by real-life events. The film is based on a true story that not only makes you feel warm inside but also sheds light on important issues. At its core, The Burial is a story of resilience and the fight against corporate corruption and racial injustice.


The Burial also stars Jurnee Smollett, Mamoudou Athie, Pamela Reed, Bill Camp and Alan Ruck.

Look out for The Burial in select theaters October 6 and on Prime Video on October 13.
