Black Panther II will film in Georgia
‘Black Panther II’ won’t move production from Georgia.
Earlier this week, Antoine Fuqua and Will Smith chose to relocate their upcoming drama ‘Emancipation’ from the state due to a new restrictive voting law but Ryan Coogler has decided to continue to work in Georgia as “many of the people employed by my film are the very same people who will bear the brunt of SB202”.
In an op-ed for Shadowandact.com, Ryan wrote: “The fight for full enfranchisement is fundamental to the African-American struggle in this country and to this country’s claim to functioning democracy. As an African-American, and as a citizen, I oppose all attempts, explicit and otherwise, to shrink the electorate and reduce access to the ballot.
