Director/producer Antoine Fuqua and actor/producer Will Smith announced Monday that they will move production of the upcoming pre-Civil War drama “Emancipation” from Georgia due to the state’s newly enacted voting restriction laws. “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,” Fuqua and Smith said in statement. “We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access. The new Georgia voting laws are reminiscent of voting impediments that were passed at the end of Reconstruction to prevent many Americans from voting. Regrettably, we feel compelled to move our film production work from Georgia to another state.” The decision comes despite calls from prominent Black figures like former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams urging Hollywood not to boycott the state. “Boycotts work best when the target of your boycott is responsive, and unfortunately we are not dealing with good actors here. The governor of Georgia is reveling in the potential of a boycott because it gives him someone to blame for his own actions,” Abrams said in a panel discussion on Friday. “Unlike previous boycotts that have worked in the South, the length of time it takes for a boycott to take effect would be devastating to an economy, devastating to people, devastating to the targets of this terrible, vicious legislation.” Also Read: Stacey Abrams: GOP Governor Wants a Georgia Boycott So He'll Have 'Someone to Blame' ViacomCBS and AT&T have criticized the new voting laws, joined by Georgia-based conglomerates like Coca-Cola and Delta. Major League Baseball also decided to move this year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. “Emancipation,” set to begin filming on June 21, stars Smith as a fugitive from slavery in the 1860s who faces a harrowing journey from Louisiana to safety in the Northern states. Smith’s character is based on “Whipped Peter,” an enslaved person who emancipated himself from a Southern plantation and joined the Union Army. In 1863, photos taken of Peter during an Army medical examination first appeared in the July 4 issue of Harper’s Weekly. Known as “The Scourged Back,” one image shows Peter’s bare back, mutilated by a whipping delivered on the plantation of enslavers John and Bridget Lyons. William N. Collage wrote the screenplay for the film, which will be produced by Fuqua Films and Smith’s Westbrook Inc. Fuqua’s directing credits include “Training Day,” “The Equalizer,” “Equalizer 2,” and the documentary “Muhammad Ali: What’s My Name” — the latter of which earned him an Emmy in 2020.

Bustle Digital Group is gearing up to relaunch Gawker. Again. On Monday, the company confirmed that former Gawker writer Leah Finnegan has been hired as editor in chief to oversee the new version of the site, which became a popular destination for media news, gossip and snarky commentary in the early 2000s. Finnegan, who was the executive editor at BDG’s Outline until its sudden shuttering in April 2020, confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday night, writing simply that “the rumors are true.” A representative for BDG, which acquired Gawker in 2018, declined to say when the site might relaunch. Also Read: Gawker Relaunch Put on Hold, All Staff Members Laid Off Gawker Media was forced into bankruptcy in 2016 after losing a Florida lawsuit brought by ex-pro wrestler Terry Bollea (a.k.a. Hulk Hogan) and his billionaire backer Peter Thiel. Bustle Media chief Bryan Goldberg purchased Gawker for $1.35 million in a bankruptcy court auction in July 2018. BDG’s initial attempt to resurrect the site was put on hold indefinitely in July 2019 and all staffers were laid off. The company declined to give many details at the time, but in a statement provided to TheWrap, a spokesperson said: “We can confirm that we are postponing the Gawker launch. For now, we are focusing company resources and efforts on our most recent acquisitions, Mic, The Outline, Nylon and Inverse.” That decision followed months of behind-the-scenes turmoil at the new version of Gawker. In January 2019, Maya Kosoff and Anna Breslaw, the site’s only two full-time writers, quit over concerns about editorial director Carson Griffith, who they said made offensive jokes and racist comments in the workplace. Soon after, the company pushed back its planned “early 2019” relaunch to later in the year, but in June, Gawker editor Ben Barna quit and returned to his job at Interview, just five months after being hired.
