Faced with the success (supposedly, since Netflix did not yet share its audience figures) of David Ayer’s fantastic action thriller released in 2017, the streaming giant quickly ordered a sequel to the film carried by Will Smith, whose production had been delayed by the Covid-19 and the departure of its director. But the project has just been buried by Netflix and the actor will therefore not resume the role of Inspector Daryl Ward, as revealed by a journalist from the American media Bloomberg on Twitter: Following the episode of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the last Academy Awards, several of the actor’s projects were canceled, including Fast and Loose, a thriller produced by Netflix now on stand-by , as well as Bad Boys 4, produced by Sony, also on hiatus. But according to Lucas Shaw, the journalist who revealed the information, the cancellation of Bright 2 “would not be related to the incident”. It could be explained by the loss of 200,000 Netflix subscribers worldwide in the first quarter of 2022, a first for more than ten years, which caused a -25% drop in the value of the stock market share. , the only Netflix project of the actor who survived the controversy and the economic situation is The Council, the new feature film by Peter Landesman, who had already collaborated with Smith on the film Alone against all in 2015, and who will play this time a figure of the underworld.
