Will Smith’s Netflix Sequel ‘Bright 2’ Reportedly Canceled, Unrelated to Oscars Slap

Will Smith got some more bad news yesterday from Netflix. Timelines for two Will Smith projects have been changed, with one delayed amid the fallout from the Oscars slap, and a second reportedly canceled though “unrelated to the incident.” Bloomberg reporter Lucas Shaw wrote in a tweet that Netflix’s Bright 2, the sequel to David Ayer’s big-budget 2017 film, has been canned. NatGeo has delayed the start of production on its big Will Smith show following the Slap. But it’s still happening.
