Will Smith is working on a new film. The 53-year-old actor slapped comedian Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars when he made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, but he’s now making a comeback and working on ‘I Am Legend 2’.
According to a source: “Will is still attached to the project and the script is being prepared with his character in mind. “Warner Brothers has yet to sign off on the premise, but there has been no hint that Will has dropped out of the project.
“Obviously, he is the film’s producer, and his production firm is in charge of the project while it is in progress. “The truth is that Will will return at some time, and the only question is which studio will be willing to take a chance on him.”
Following his behaviour at the Oscars, Will received a lot of backlash. However, he is likely to return to the movie industry in the coming months.

The Sun on Sunday tabloid quoted a source as saying: “The public’s negative feelings toward his career have dwindled in recent weeks as the world has moved on thanks to tales like the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trials.
“Will is also undergoing counselling and taking a break from the spotlight. “Hollywood likes comeback stories, such as Robert Downey Jr.’s, Mel Gibson’s, Drew Barrymore’s, and Winona Ryder’s, in which performers who appeared to be done with the profession return with a major project.
“Things may look very different in two years, and Will could return to the screen.” Will earlier called his Oscars behaviour “shocking, painful, and unforgivable.” The actor, who first appeared in the 2007 film ‘I Am Legend,’ said: “My behaviour at the 94th Academy Awards was startling, heartbreaking, and unforgivable.
“Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home are among those I have injured. I betrayed the Academy’s trust. I took away the opportunity for other nominees and winners to enjoy and be recognized for their outstanding efforts.
“I’m devastated. I want to refocus attention on those who deserve it for their accomplishments, allowing the Academy to focus on the tremendous work it does to foster filmmaking innovation and artistry.”
