Remember a little while ago, when all of the movie news in the whole world was just about that slap? It seemed for a while that all of Will Smith’s movies were put on hold or dumped. Well, Bad Boys 4 is still moving forward.

What did you say about my wife’s hair?

The “highly anticipated” (not my words) Bad Boys 4 was put on pause for a while following the Oscars incident. However in a recent interview Tom Rothman, one of the Sony bosses, said the reports were “inaccurate” and said there:

“…weren’t any brakes to pump because the car wasn’t moving.”

Rothman went on to say that the movie is still in development and Sony was not cutting ties with Smith.

“That was a very unfortunate thing that happened, and I don’t think it’s really my place to comment, except to say that I’ve known Will Smith for many years, and I know him to be a good person. That was an example of a very good person having a very bad moment, in front of the world. I believe his apology and regret is genuine, and I believe in forgiveness and redemption.”

We’ve discussed the slap in great detail here on the Last Movie Outpost, but it did seem for a while, that Smith might have been cancelled.

Smith’s next big movie, Emancipation, is directed by Antoine Fuqua and was said to be an Oscar contender. Well, not for Smith anymore since he’s been put on the Oscar “Naughty Step” for a while.

It looks like Bad Boys 4 will eventually happen, once the dust settles on Smith and his follically challenged wife.
