Sudden cessation of production Fast և free Netflix, starring Will Smith, seems to be another aftermath of the recent Oscar scandal. The new film of the actor completely stopped its initial production. A few weeks ago, the project had its first problem. Director David Leach came out of the films behind the camera demanded to work in production Autumn boy. The latter, with the participation of Ryan Reynolds, reportedly made a decision that surprised Netflix. But it’s probably Will Smith’s behavior at the Oscars that eventually led to the cancellation of the filming.
There is no official announcement, but IndieWire: explains that Netflix has made a radical decision. On the one hand, stop production altogether without a reintegration date. At the other extreme, the opportunity to continue indefinitely with the director, now another actor. There are no details about possible changes, but the film has become an awkward moment for subscribers.
What happened is the latest in a series of events involving Will Smith since the Oscars. In the controversy surrounding him, The decision of the platform does not seem accidental. It can also be interpreted as a concrete symptom of what Will Smith can expect in the medium term. What started out as a shameful event in the middle of the Oscar ceremony seems to have become a bigger problem for the actor.
So much so that he begins to speculate that it may have a similar impact on his career in the future. Moreover, it becomes clear that academia և industry do not want to allow the incident. In fact, what seems to be an indefinite downturn in Netflix production is a consequence of something bigger. Is Smith’s trip and career in jeopardy? This is the big question that is now analyzing the world of entertainment.
From grace to ascension
“This is a concrete precedent that can show how industry and academia are moving forward.” One week after Smith surprised the world with his behavior on stage, everything around him is uncertain. Specifically, because the further reaction of the guilds և unions showed that the fact is in the gray zone.
Only the Actors Guild (SAG) responded by announcing disciplinary sanctions on the Monday following the Oscars. However, none of this is happening. For now, the potential decisions of major Hollywood studios and institutions are confusing, somewhat confusing. But one thing is clear. Will Smith will have to wait for at least one difficult season in the world of cinema.
Last week, it was reported that the Academy had launched an investigation into a scandal at the Oscars. The method or protocol associated with the procedure is not specified. But it was hinted that Will Smith could be expelled from the academy. As an Oscar winner, your membership և voting right is guaranteed. But before a decision could be made, Smith decided surrender.
In: dismissal, the actor explained the reasons for his decision և insisted that he was “ashamed” of his behavior. “The list of people I have offended is long. “It includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends, loved ones, everyone present, the global audience at home,” Smith said in a statement. “I have betrayed the trust of the academy. I have deprived the other nominees and winners of the opportunity to celebrate and be rewarded for their extraordinary work. “My heart is broken.”
And now that? Will Smith in the eye of the storm
But despite the public mea culpa, Smith’s public relations campaign to cover up the incident has little effect. Public criticism, debates around him, and even rallies of support have become a difficult event that can affect his career. A few days ago, It turned out that Sony stopped the development prematurely Bad Boys 4:, apparently as a direct result of the Oscar scandal. This is despite the fact that weeks ago it was reported that Smith had part of the script. However, it is obvious that the studios will try to stay away from the shamefully labeled situation for the industry, at least for now.
Will this be the last obvious consequence of what happened? There are rumors that: Apple tv + movie, Emancipation, can also be canceled or at least suspended. Which means that most of the actor’s projects this year will be suspended or in serious jeopardy. Could this be the end of Smith’s long journey into the world of cinema? Only time will tell.
