Release Date: February 27, 2015
Following the huge stinker known as After Earth, Will Smith is planning a resurgence for the next few years. Up first is the romantic comedy-drama, Focus, which finds the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air playing a seasoned con-man named Nicky Spurgeon who becomes romantically involved with a young woman. Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, this con-man love story aims to paint Will Smith in a dubious light. All that will be well and good, as the Grammy Award winning rapper will finally play a bad guy in the upcoming Warner Bros. picture, The Suicide Squad in 2016.
