In reaction to Georgia’s new restrictive voting laws, Will Smith announced he will no longer shoot his new movie, Emancipation, out of Georgia in protest.

In a statement, Smith and the film’s director Antoine Fuqua said: ‘At this moment in time, the Nation is coming to terms with its history and is attempting to eliminate vestiges of institutional racism to achieve true racial justice.

‘We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access.

Even though it will cost an additional 15M to move production, Smith and Fuqua are already scouting other States.
