Netflix cancels Will Smith starrer Bright 2 and Oscar fiasco is not the reason

Hollywood star Will Smith has recently revealed the title of his upcoming autobiography which is set to be published on November 9.

Netflix has reportedly cancelled Will Smith’s action-flick sequel Bright 2 and it has been reported that the reason is unrelated to the Oscar incident.

Will Smith-Chris Rock fallout from The Academy Awards 2022 continues to prove deleterious for Smith as more and more projects featuring the actor are either being delayed or cancelled. While the impact of the incident is evident on Smith’s acting career, a news source has revealed that Netflix has ‘abandoned plans to make a sequel to Bright,’ but disclosed that it was not related to recent slap incident at the Oscars 2022.

Bright 2 is just the latest filming starring Smith that has been nixed at Netflix with the movie Fast and Loose also having been shelved by the streamer. As per a report, it was reported at the time that Fast and Loose stalling out also had nothing to do with the infamous Oscar-slap but due to director David Leitch developing another project at another studio.

Meanwhile, Will Smith has been banned from The Oscars for the next 10 years. The actor, who won an Oscar for Best Actor for King Richard, was mired in controversy when he slapped comedian Chris Rock on stage after the latter made a “distateful”  joke about Jada Pinkett Smith. Some of Will Smith’s upcoming projects have been halted for now.

Smith currently has Apple’s high-prestige drama Emancipation, a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles in which he would star opposite Kevin Hart and the second installment of a travel series for National Geographic on Disney+ in his kitty.
