Will Smith is Not Joining ‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel

Will Smith will not be reprising his role in Suicide Squad 2 as Deadshot.

The reason why Smith decided to back out of the film was due to scheduling issues. Deadline reports that the James Gunn-directed flick is supposed to begin recording in September in Atlanta.

There’s no word on the rest of the cast but Margot Robbie is expected to return as Harley Quinn. She’s already reprising the Joker’s girlfriend in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey which is slated to open on Feb. 7, 2020.

Suicide Squad 2 is set to be released on Aug. 6, 2021. The first installment raked up $746.8M in the global box office, 44% of that made in U.S./Canada.

A Roc-A-Fella Records Biopic Could Be The Works

Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder, Kareem “Biggs” Burke has his sights set on turning the story of Roc-A-Fella records into a movie.

During a recent interview with Revolt TV, he opened up about his career and the valuable lessons learned while in prison. He also shed some light on his role as the executive producer of HBO’s O.G.

Midway through the conversation, the interviewer asked Biggs if he had ever considered making a Roc biopic. Hip-Hop biopics have become a growing trend in Hollywood. Given the success of films such as Notorious and Straight Outta Compton, a Roc-A-Fella Records film seems promising.

In fact, Biggs confirmed work on the project is underway. “Yeah, I’m working on it now,” he said. Elaborating further, “It’ll probably be separate stories of Jay, Damon [Dash] and myself. Showing us as kids to understand what we’ve went through — the pain and hardships. The extenuating circumstances such as me living in a shelter, some people don’t really know that. Being evicted, living in a shelter, and staying in people’s houses and floors for two years. Jay losing his father at four years old when his father left him. Dame losing his mom at 14 years old and having to put himself through private school. So, there were a lot of hardships and things we went through that actually gave us strength.”

If he gets his way, there’s a good chance the Roc-A-Fella Records story will be told in three parts.

Along with the help of Damon Dash and Jay-Z, Roc-A-Fella Records became one of the most recognized labels in Hip Hop.

Biggs is doing big things, especially considering his return to the music business spearheaded by his launch of the Circle of Success Management Company and signing its first artist, SAINt JHN.

Two Suspects Arrested in Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Attack

The two men who were previously “persons of interest” in the homophobic and racial attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett have now been arrested.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the two Nigerian brothers have been treated as potential suspects because Chicago detectives had “probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime.”

The two men have not been charged nor have the police said what the brothers were accused of or what the alleged crime might have been.

Smollett reported to Chicago police on January 29th that he had been physically attacked by two men who yelled racial and homophobic slurs at the 36-year old actor. He also said that the alleged suspects wore MAGA(Make America Great Again) baseball caps.

“Interrogations will resume today with the two individuals and their attorney,” Guglielmi said in today’s press statement.

“While we haven’t found any video documenting the alleged attack, there is also no evidence to say that this is a hoax.”

“The alleged victim is being cooperative at this time and continues to be treated as a victim, not a suspect,” he added.

🚦I get the green light again here we go. Repeat after me, God is good all the time. 🤷🏽‍♂️#bransoncognac 🍾#lecheminduroi

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on

According to Variety, “The untitled drama is a serialized legal and family drama about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him.”

Mr. Jackson has been making significant moves as television and film mogul. He recently signed a multi-series deal with Starz worth an estimated $150 million. Per the deal, he will continue to create new scripted material and an unscripted series for the network through his G-Unit Film & Television Inc.

50 and G-Unit already have two new projects in active development, “Black Mafia Family,” and “Vanguard”: which he had open casting calls for.

50’s work as a power player in the tv and film industry is just beginning.

Former ‘106 And Park’ Host A.J. Calloway Suspended From ‘Extra’ Amid Sexual Misconduct Investigation

According to several confirmed reports, Extra host A.J. Calloway has been suspended from his job indefinitely by Warner Brothers Television as they conduct “an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on Extra and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct.”

Calloway, a former host of the famed youth-driven BET video show 106 And Park, was accused by at least three women of sexual misconduct, with one of the women filing an aggravated sexual assault charge against the television host as recent as last year.

One of the other alleged victims, activist Sil Lai Abrams, says that Calloway attempted to make her touch his penis when they first met in 2006 and named him as the “B-list celebrity” who abused her in her 2007 book.

A.J is adamantly denying the accusations, issuing a statement through his lawyer saying, “Mr. Calloway maintains that these unsubstantiated allegations are patently false. He vehemently denies that he ever assaulted anyone and looks forward to clearing his name.”
