Smith and Ayer reunite via Netflix.
Mass Appeal Wire Reports
HOLLYWOOD — Can’t we all just get along? Veteran entertainer Will Smith and director David Ayer have joined forces once again, this time via Netflix in the action-packed thriller “Bright” — a cinematic deal worth approximately $90 million. Ayer, by the way, famously directed the critically-acclaimed DC Comics film “Suicide Squad” starring Smith as Deadshot. Bright is equally uncanny. For starters, Ayer’s conception is set in a parallel universe where earth is cohabited by humans and goblin-like creatures called Orcs.
Smith plays a cop who does everything within his power to shield the monsters from a racist society. That’s not a misprint. Smith, who’s African-American, tries to protect a bunch of Orcs from day-to-day discrimination. Yes, it’s a parallel universe indeed. “Just because they look different does not mean anybody is better or worse than anybody,” Smith’s character explains to his inquisitive daughter.

Joining the 49-year-old Smith on screen are actor Joel Edgerton (who stars alongside Smith as an Orc police officer) and Swedish actress Noomi Rapace. Smith isn’t the only A-list talent going the Netflix route. If you recall, Brad Pitt starred in War Machine earlier this year.
Ayer, of course, continues to stay busy. He’s reportedly working on a spin-off of Suicide Squad titled “Gotham City Sirens” starring Margot Robbie reprising her peculiar role of Harley Quinn.
