Will Smith stars in one of Netflix’s first big-budget original films Bright, which was released back in2017. There were plans for a sequel for the film which would reteam Will Smith and Joel Edgerton in another film. We’re learning from Comicbook.com that Netflix is canceling the sequel in light of the Will Smith controversy.
This is disappointing but not surprising that Netflix is deciding to cancel Bright 2. There are a lot of conversations online about Will Smith and studios distancing themselves from him. It’s odd to me that Hollywood is doing this, especially to a name like Will Smith. I don’t think the general public has given the impression that they won’t support Will but it seems like Hollywood is making up its mind.
This is especially interesting in light of other actors like Ezra Miller who is also making headlines but is getting a different result.
ANYWAY, that’s all I have for this one.
