The days after the 2022 Oscars ceremony were particularly turbulent for Will Smith. The actor had to deal with the consequences of having hit Chris Rock in the middle of the gala following an unfortunate joke about the appearance of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The Academy decided to veto him for ten years, and rumors began to emerge that several of his upcoming projects were hanging in the balance. Among them, ‘Bad Boys 4’, which was in development, was said to have stalled waiting for Sony Pictures to make a firm decision on their professional relationship with Smith.
However, the head of the study, Tim Rothman, has denied these rumors and has assured that the fourth installment of ‘Two rebel policemen’ is still underway: “That was wrong. That movie was in development and still is.. There was no brake to hit because the car wasn’t moving.”. Therefore, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will return soon as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett in a new film of the action franchise, which has not yet announced a director. The script will be carried out by Chris Bremmer.
“I know that Will Smith is a good person”
Tim Rothman has also used his interview with Deadline to send his support to Smith: “What happened was a very unfortunate thing, and I don’t think I’m the one to comment, beyond saying that I have known Will Smith for many years and I know he is a good person. That was an example of a good person having a very bad time, in front of the world. I think his apology and regret are genuine, and I believe in forgiveness and redemption.”.
As chance is quite capricious, a new season of ‘They Need No Introduction’, David Letterman’s talk show, premiered on Netflix last Friday. One of the guests was Will Smith, and at one point in the talk, recorded in 2021, the actor said: “You can’t protect your family, that’s not real. Protection and security are an illusion. You have to learn to live with the reality that at any moment anything can disappear in a second. So with that reality, how can you be here? And how can you be cheerful and be joyful?”. In the interview he also talked about a new life stage that he had unlocked after writing his biography, ‘Will’: “Life is very exciting for me now because I’m able to reach out to people in a different way than I ever have, largely because of my pain. I’m ready to dive into my heart in a way that I think will be, I hope, enriching.” for me and help for the human family”.
After winning the Oscar with ‘The Williams Method’, Smith has the Apple TV + series ‘Emancipation’ pending premierewhich has postponed its launch waiting for the waters to calm down.
