No director is now attached to the project, but given Smith's involvement with the biopic, it's safe to assume that the streaming service will try and fast track the search for someone to helm the project and bring the veteran actor back their library after starring in the hit 2017 crime fantasy Bright.
Smith will produce with James Lassiter, his partner at Overbrook Entertainment, now under the umbrella of Smith's Westbrook Inc.
According to Deadline, Will Smith is set to star in the upcoming Netflix film The Council as the NY crime boss Nicky Barnes.
The group weren't an ordinary crime syndicate because these men dreamed of a self-sufficient and self-policing African American city-state, funded by revolutionising the drug game.
Barnes, whose death was recently made known, was an American crime boss, active in New York City during the 1970s, who led an global drug trafficking ring in partnership with the Italian-American Mafia until his arrest in 1978. He was arrested in 1978 and sentenced to life imprisonment, eventually becoming a federal informant, which led to the demise of The Council. The former mobster would enter the witness protection program after bringing the Council down and lived in hiding until his passing in 2012, which wasn't revealed until earlier this year.
