The Hollywood Reporter reports that Netflix’s new movie “Quick and Free,” about a man with memory loss who discovers he’s led a double life as a blackmailer and CIA agent, is being “quietly sidelined.” This is the aftermath of the slap that Will Smith gave Chris Rock on stage during the 94th Academy Awards.
Just like Bad Boys 4. The previous film was one of the hits of 2020, grossing over $425 million at the box office. A sequel was planned, but according to recent reports, it will be put on hiatus. Smith also has a film called Emancipation in post-production, though no release date has been set.
Rock, who performed at the Oscars, joked about the hairstyle of Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, comparing it to Jane’s soldier. Pinkett Smith has alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss. In response, Smith came on stage and slapped Rock and then yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”
