Numerous forthcoming Will Smith projects have been dropped following Chris Rock slap
Studios are dashing to drop everything connected with Will Smith that they have being developed following the questionable Oscars second.

Ruler Richard was Smith’s sole film in 2021.
The aftermath from Smith’s humiliating second won’t stop at any point in the near future.

Smith is one of the most bankable entertainers in Hollywood. After the uneven quarrel, he’ll need to go through years attempting to alter the crowd’s perspectives that he’s as yet worth watching.
Fortunately crowds won’t be missing Smith for a really long time. It would be a colossal mix-up to consider Smith, a social symbol, a persona non-grata following many years of bankability. Regardless, Smith could wind up spending his other days attempting to demonstrate that he’s still similarly as bankable as could be expected, which is certainly not something awful.
