Will Smith had recently announced that he will not be returning for the DC–Warner Bros sequel of Suicide Squad. The actor had played the character of Deadshot in the film, and received significant praise for it. However, due to his busy schedule, he will not be acting in the upcoming film. Aside from that, Will is currently busy shooting for the biopic, King Richard, where he will be playing the character of renowned tennis players, Serena and Venus Williams's father. The film is based on the hardships coach Richard Williams faced throughout his life, and his struggle to train his daughters, despite knowing very little about tennis. The film is based on a script by Zach Baylin, with Will himself, as the producer, alongside Tim and Trevor White.
