Netflix Confirms ‘Bright’ Sequel; Will Smith & Joel Edgerton Return

Netflix has announced a sequel to its Will Smith-led movie Bright. The film, which stars Smith and Joel Edgerton as LAPD cops in an alternative universe was created for a reported budget of over $90 million. Bight premiered on Netflix on December 22, 2017, and became the highest viewed film ever in its first week of release for the streaming service. This film has also been panned by critics, as it sits with a 28% Rotten rating on the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. In a viral tweet last week, Chance the Rapper slammed the film for allegorical racism.

Directed by David Ayer, Bright is set in alternative present-day and follows two cops from very different backgrounds (Ward, a human played by Will Smith, and Jakoby, an orc played by Joel Edgerton). The duo embarks on a routine patrol night that will ultimately alter the future as their world knows it.
