Will Smith Slavery Movie Bags $75 Million Dollar Offers

Published: Wednesday 24th Jun 2020 by David

Will Smith‘s ‘Emancipation‘ is faring very well as Cannes.

Full story below…

Smith and Antoine Fuqua have teamed up to build a movie set to explore the life of a man born into African chattel slavery and decides to emancipate himself from its horrors.

The outbreak of COVID-19 meant that investors were unable to travel to Cannes to negotiate deals with creators so organisers launched a virtual film festival to ensure the show could go on.

Now, Smith has learned that Warner Bros, Apple, MGM, Apple and Lionsgate are among the studios bidding to bag the move rights to the story and that the war to win it now sings to the tune of $75 million.

Any company hoping to secure the project will have to top that figure (and proposed offers from rivals) to do so.

Perhaps fuelling the fervour?

The global discussion on race and anti-blackness currently taking place following the murders of several African-American civilians within the last few weeks.

Stay tuned for updates on this story.

      Let me clarify lol…I wasn’t referring to Will Smith as being high and mighty…I enjoy Will Smith as an actor…I was talking about his BOOTY being high and mighty 😂 Like, it sits UP 🤣 I got that from Oprah too lol..I think she referred to Danny Glover’s booty as being “the high and the mighty” back in the day 😂 I still don’t like slave movies tho!

    Why do black people think the only powerful and thought provoking movies they can make are when they are slaves?

      U idiot
      These stories are important and they need to be told and the history of slavery needs to be preserved thru film

        Black people weren’t just slaves. There are so many stories and historical moments beyond the slave era.

        “Black people weren’t just slaves.”

        And who said black people were just slaves?
        People who were slaves need to be remember and immortalized and their stories need to be told.

        U see the problem with people like u?
        An unintelligent maggot.
        I hope ur mama gets ràped by a pack of homeless people

    If we’re not going to the truth about slavery AND share cropping then keep it, its getting old and each time its less and less truthful. And I’m northern real counties and country prisons, slavery is still very much alive.
