Westbrook Studios


Nostalgia reigns over Will Smith’s slate. In January, Smith reprised his role as Detective Mike Lowrey opposite Martin Lawrence in “Bad Boys for Life,” which — pre-pandemic — went on to gross more than $400 million worldwide and reinvigorated the beloved 25-year-old franchise. The actor, producer and musician also revisited “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” for a 30th-anniversary reunion. Smith’s Westbrook Media produced the special for HBO Max and also nabbed a two-season order of “Bel-Air,” a dramatic reimagining of “Fresh Prince,” for Peacock. His Westbrook Studios is also producing “King Richard,” in which the two-time Oscar nominee plays Venus and Serena Williams’ father, Richard; Paramount’s “Planes Trains & Automobiles” remake with Smith and Kevin Hart; and Apple’s action thriller “Emancipation,” directed by Antoine Fuqua.
