Sam Smith’s latest movie, “Wanderlight,” is in theaters and is set to be the subject of a heated debate among the moviegoers on social media, with some suggesting the film will be a “dinosaur” and others saying that it will be “just as good as its predecessor.”
Smith has already announced that “Walking Tall” will be the first of the two movies to feature an African-American lead, which has lead some critics to question whether Smith’s film will follow the lead of “American Sniper” and “Black Panther.”
However, “Black Panthers” director Ryan Coogler has said that “Black Lives Matter” and the other films he directed, “The Imitation Game” and its sequels, “Gravity” and, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” will not be impacted by Smith’s films.
“Sam Smith’s movies are not going to be like ‘American Sniper,'” Cooglers’ co-director Paul Feig told Variety in April.
“We’re going to make films that are different and that are very different.
It’s going to take us a little while to get to that point.”
Smith told Variety that “wanderlust” has been his life since he was a child.
“When I was a kid, I’d watch ‘The Wizard of Oz’ on a Sunday morning,” Smith said.
“And I was just like, ‘Man, I want to be a part of that.'”
He added that he was inspired by the classic “Wizard of Oz” and then by “The Wizard” when he was young.
“I was fascinated with the way that Dorothy [of Oz] was like the fairy godmother,” Smith continued.
“I just wanted to be part of it.
I wanted to play the role.”
In addition to “Wanderinglight,” Smith is also starring in “Gigantic,” which will be released on Nov. 4, and is also directing “The Man from the Paper Moon” and a sequel to his film “The Big Short,” which is currently in post-production.
Smith is currently starring in the sequel to the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” and he is also set to release his fourth feature film, “A Christmas Carol,” on Dec. 10.
