John Boyega created News as he dropped from filming the Netflix movie Rebel Ridge earlier this month. Based on Netflix’s initial declaration, John Boyega had left as a result of personal obligations. “for family reasons.” When this kind of thing happens, situations can still change, and so nobody thought way too hard about it. Nevertheless, sources claim there was far more to the circumstance than Netflix let on.
Primarily based on the Hollywood Reporter, John Boyega’s departure from Rebel Ridge took place no previous notice. The film had earlier gone into production at the moment the star wrapped his luggage and left. Sources suggest that John Boyega appeared to leave without any inspiration as well as the cause. The sources were not expressly called, but THR claims they were people strongly linked with Rebel Ridge.
So what really is the case and why did Boyega leave unannounced? It is hard to point out. John Boyega’s production company “UpperRoom” is still working with Netflix on Rebel Ridge, therefore it does not appear very likely that he’d leave without any explanation. Sources close to the project have claimed otherwise, but since they are anonymous, the statements cannot be completely corroborated.
A Netflix spokesperson told us
Top Netflix executives, as well as head of worldwide films Scott Stuber and co CEO Ted Sarandos, attempted to persuade the star to come back but with no success.
It is noteworthy as The Hollywood Reporter claims John Boyega had earlier raised several concerns about Rebel Ridge, “from the script to his accommodations.” The lead of The Star Wars Sequel Trilogy has not shied away from voicing his personal opinions; therefore, it is probable he believed that his ideas have been being averted. Of course, if John Boyega’s personal company was co-producing the film, it makes sense that he will be somewhat annoyed.
Last year Netflix offered Boyega to produce films according to accounts, cast, characters, crew, literary properties, mythology, screenplays as well as some other components in and around African countries, with a target on East Africa and West.
Netflix had earlier announced it will do working with UpperRoom beyond Rebel Ridge, as well as up to now no claims, on the contrary, were released. In a notice about the brand new statements plus UpperRoom, John Boyega’s UK talent agent, Femi Oguns, stated the following:
It seems Netflix has not cut ties with UpperRoom, consequently, there can’t be very much bad blood. This’s fortunate for John Boyega since his departure effectively stopped the project on Rebel Ridge. The film will probably be directed by Green Room vet Jeremy Saulhier. It was postponed previously as well, because of COVID nineteen, and had just started up creation once more on May third, 2021. Netflix declared the production is going to go again from hiatus next season, presumably with an alternative lead.
If John Boyega left to handle "family issues" why is his role being recasted? Why not just stall production? Either way, I hope his family is okay 🤔🙏🏿🙏🏿
