The schedules of two Will Smith projects have been changed, with one delayed amid the fallout from the Oscars slap, and a second reportedly canceled though “unrelated to the incident.”

Bloomberg reporter Lucas Shaw wrote in a tweet that Netflix’s Bright 2, the sequel to David Ayer’s big-budget 2017 film, has been cancelled.

While the original was not critically acclaimed, it was one of Netflix’s biggest releases at the time and found some fans. The sequel was announced a month after its release, in January 2018. Smith played Daryl Ward, an LAPD detective in a world where humans and different kinds of creatures coexist, such as orcs, elves, and fairies.

A spin-off animated series titled Bright: Samurai Soul was slated for a 2021 release, though it’s unclear if or when it will debut.

Will Smith’s National Geographic nature series Pole to Pole was also delayed, according to a Bloomberg report citing a source. The show was supposed to chronicle the actor’s journeys to the South and North Poles.

Pole to Pole would be Smith’s third series with NatGeo, following 2018’s One Strange Rock and 2021’s Welcome to Earth. Production will now reportedly begin in the fall instead of next month.
