Will Smith’s slap attack on Chris Rock is reportedly leading to the star’s upcoming projects in Hollywood getting canceled. Insiders say that a bidding war for the actor’s biopic, based on his bestselling autobiography Will, is now effectively over after Netflix and Apple pulled their bids following his bizarre Oscars meltdown. Plans for a fourth Bad Boys film have apparently been shelved as has a new Netflix project that was provisionally entitled Fast and Loose. A source told U.K. tabloid the Sun: “Netflix and Apple+ have quietly removed their bids for a Will Smith biopic and will instead relocate the funds and develop original ideas from new Black actors. Working with Will has become a risky business. They now plan on developing ideas with more family friendly stars like Mike Epps and Michael B. Jordan.” The King Richard star is due to attend a hearing on April 18 where he will learn if he is to be stripped of his Best Actor Oscar.
