Netflix, Apple+, Sony Pause Projects Involving Will Smith

Actor Will Smith is facing further fallout from slapping comedian Chris Rock at last week’s Oscars.   Streaming giants Netflix and Apple+ have both announced a pause on projects that were the works.   The Netflix movie Fast and Loose , starring Will Smith, has now been placed on the back burner.   Slave drama Emancipation , made for Apple+, has already been completed, however, there are no current plans to release the film.    Sony is also putting the brakes on Bad Boys 4 , which was in active development.   Industry insiders have reportedly stated that working with Smith has become risky business, and the focus will now turn to family friendly actors including Michael B Jordan
