Will Smith Takes on Fast & Loose Crime Boss Thriller from Deadpool 2 Director

Will Smith Takes on Fast & Loose Crime Boss Thriller from Deadpool 2 Director

Will Smith has been attached to a new project that will see him playing a crime lord. The film, titled Fast & Loose, is a drama that has Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw director David Leitch attached to helm the project. According to Deadline, a fierce bidding war is currently taking place between all the major Hollywood studios to snap up the rights to the planned movie. The logline for the project can be read below.

“After the leader of an upper-echelon criminal organization suffers memory loss from an attack, he reunites with his crew, only to find that things aren’t what he thinks they are. When John Riley (Will Smith) wakes up in Tijuana after being left for dead with absolutely no memory, he follows a string of clues to uncover his identity discovering he’s been living two different lives: one, as a super-successful crime kingpin, surrounded by beautiful women, expensive toys, and a lavish lifestyle and the other as an undercover CIA agent, but with a puny salary, no family or home life whatsoever, and zero trappings of success. The problem is, he can’t remember which of these two personas is his true identity, and, more importantly, which life he really wants to live.”

While the premise of the movie can make for a grounded, serious drama, along the lines of The Bourne Identity or MementoDavid Leitch is known for injecting loads of style and flourish into his movies, which include Atomic Blonde and John Wick. Leitch is also noted for being able to use the natural charisma of his leading actors to create memorable characters. So a team-up between him and Will Smith feels like a match made in heaven.

While Smith made his name in the 90s playing heroic roles, lately he has been leaning more into gray or anti-hero portrayals, such as the drunk and depressed superhero Hancock, the supervillain Deadshot, or an assassin in Gemini Man. Still, even the evilest roles manage to somehow become sympathetic characters in Smith’s hands, and that is probably going to happen in Fast and Loose as well.

One thing that the movie will doubtless feature is amazing action scenes. Leitch has proven he knows how to create an action sequence that feels real, even when it is taking place between an immortal assassin like Deadpool and a cybernetic warrior from the future like Cable. Leitch’s fondness for injecting humor into his stories should also find a great use for Smith’s excellent comic timing.

Before the actor jumps into Fast and Loose, however, Smith will be seen in his next star vehicle where he teams with filmmaker Antoine Fuqua in the runaway slave drama Emancipation that is being produced by Apple. The movie will scratch a particular itch for Smith since he turned down the leading role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained because the actor could not see eye-to-eye with Tarantino over the “vengeance” theme of the film. This comes from Deadline.

I believe that the cultivation of personal and historical understanding is the imperative spark igniting the flames of desperately needed compassion and healing. As Americans, we endeavor to form a more perfect union that truly establishes justice and equality for all. I believe a deeper understanding of the 14th Amendment is a critical jumping off point. Our hope with this series is to illuminate the beauty that is the promise of America and to share a message of connection and shared humanity so that we will be able to better understand and celebrate our different experiences as Americans and promote progress toward the true equality promised to all persons under the 14th Amendment. I’m grateful to Netflix and the phenomenal group of people who came together both in front of and behind the camera to help us tell this story.”

Tennis may be an individual sport but there are many people who contribute towards the success of any player. When it comes to Serena Williams and her sister Venus Williams, the credit definitely goes to their dad Richard Williams for shaping them. On a number of occasions, both the sisters have said that without their father, the two would have been nothing.

To honor Williams’ contribution, HBO announced a film on him earlier. HBO will be coming with some quite great stuff this year and one of them is ‘King Richard’. The first scenes of the movie are out and they are quite fascinating to see. The great superstar Will Smith is playing the role of Richard Williams and one could see him in the still scene. The film will hit the theatres on November 19, 2021.

Apart from Smith, Demi Singleton will be playing the role of Serena Williams while Saniyya Sidney will take it up for Venus Williams. The film covers the life of father Richard and mentions his role in developing his two daughters to world-class tennis players. The director of the film is Reinaldo Marcus Green.

HBO has also released the first look of some more fascinating movies. One can see LeBron James and Bugs Bunny in ‘Space Jam 2’ and the great battle between Kong and Godzilla in ‘Godzilla v Kong’. The first looks of ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘Mortal Kombat’, and even ‘Tom and Jerry’ are out as well.
