It’s fair to say Will Smith is doing A-OK with the announcement of Sugar Bandits, an action film he will star in and executive produce. As reported by Variety, Sugar Bandits is based on the book Devils in Exile by Chuck Hogan; Smith plays an Iraq War veteran who becomes part of a team of other vets taking Boston’s drug trade.

ICYMI Smith has been busy with the next Bad Boys on the way next summer, not to mention the highly anticipated sequel to I Am Legend.
