Will Smith has come a long way from Philadelphia to Hollywood and his work ethic over the years has garnered him much due respect for his multiple roles in blockbuster films. Even during the pandemic, the actor has been able to get work done for major Blockbuster films like Bad Boys 4 Life, Aladdin, and Spies In Disguise. His track record of being a ratings draw and box office attraction had led him to secure another big deal with the biggest entertainment streaming site in the world.Fast & Loose, an action-thriller starring Will Smith, was acquired by Netflix, according to Deadline. The film, which apparently was in a massive bidding war among major film companies, centers around Smith’s character John Riley who wake up in Tijuana with no recollection of being attacked. Later on, the plot twist reveals that he was living life as both an undercover agent and a major criminal kingpin.
