• Will Smith wants to make a comeback after his scandal
  • It's been almost three months since his Oscars outburst
  • Apparently, he's working on a sequel to I Am Legend 

Will Smith fell out of favour after the slap incident at the 2022 Oscars. But now he wants a comeback. The actor finally wants to make films again after his scandal.

You'll remember Smith had rushed the Oscars stage and smacked comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. The incident earned the Hollywood star a lot of criticism, and he stepped away from the film industry afterward.

"The concept is still to be signed off by Warner Brothers, but there has been no indication that Will is off the project."

The insider adds: "The reality is that Will will make a comeback at some point and it will be simply down to which studio will be the one to take a chance on him."

Smith's behaviour at the Oscars initially caused a huge outcry, but coverage has fallen off in recent months. Therefore, according to the industry expert, the time is right for the Hollywood superstar to make a comeback.
