Will Smith Won’t Shoot Movie In Georgia Because Of 'Voting Restrictions'

Antoine Fuqua and Will Smith will move production on their movie, “Emancipation” out of Georgia to protest over the state’s controversial new voting restrictions.

Fuqua and Smith released a joint statement saying, “We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access.”

“Emancipation,” which was scheduled to begin filming on June 21st, stars Smith as Peter, a fugitive from slavery who is fleeing Louisiana in the hopes of traveling north to freedom.
