Will SmithAfter smacking, is she in limbo? Chris RockAcademy Awards. Is there a shortage of roles? Are he being inundated by offers? Gossip Cop investigates.
Too Much Work
Per Mirror, Smith’s stunt at the Academy Awards is paying off for his career. While some questioned if he would ever work again, industry experts believe he’s set to be “flooded with work offers.”His comeback could be possible through television and smaller-scale action movies. Another industry expert predicts “there will be offers”In the very near term.
While Smith may have sullied his reputation he’s still a well-known name. His name could generate buzz in any action movie of mid-tier, especially now. Television producers may still consider Smith a serious candidate, even though the Academy Awards are primarily focused on film. Smith has strong allies in the showbiz, so he could be back at work soon.
There’s a lot going on here. First, it’s absurd to say that TV can be an option. Smith is proof that the line between film and television has never been more blurred. He’s both an Academy Award winner and the producer of Bel-Air on Hulu. It’s not like all television producers are kept in a hyperbaric chamber away from any award shows besides the Emmy Awards. Smith will be judged by TV executives just as the rest.
However, this story is pure speculation. It mentions Smith CouldReceive offers WillGet offers quickly. The story is not credible if it has any inside information about Smith. This outlet doesn’t know any more about Smith’s future than anyone else, and just interviewed some PR folks to get different takes on what might happen.
What’s the Deal?
Considering the fact that Hollywood is filled with folks who’ve done far worse than Smith and still get to keep power, it’s hard to believe Smith is down for the count. Roman Polanski and Woody Allen, both accused of far worse than what Smith’s done, have virtually no problem making films.
For one thing, he’s powerful enough to be his own producer. Smith will still be a star. I Am Legend 2 alongside Michael B. Jordan, and that’s just one project.
He’s producing loads of upcoming projects and is still connected to Bright 2 Bad Boys 4. Serena Williams just announced her retirement she’d like to see King Richard 2 someday, and it’s hard to do that without Smith as its star.
This isn’t to say Smith is escaping without consequence. He’s still banned from the Academy Awards for a decade, and some major studios are reticent to go near him. Netflix is backing away from Smith’s next film Fast and looseRock incident. The future looks dim at best.
Only time will tell what comes of Smith’s career, but one thing is for sure: this speculative article has no real insight worth paying attention to.
