Jamie Foxx and his managers Jaime Rucker King and Marcus King have signed on to produce and develop Universal's The Power of Duff with Marc Platt, according to Variety.

Until a few months ago, Russell Crowe and Ron Howard had been attached to star and direct with Brian Grazer producing, but that package has moved on to other projects.

The story of The Power of Duff follows a grieving local TV news anchor who begins praying on air and then discovers his prayers are being answered.

Foxx is only attached to produce at the moment, but there is an open possibility of him starring.
