“I can’t speak for anyone else, but I can tell you, without an absence of clarity here, that any movie that we have moving forward with Seven Bucks Productions — any movie, any television show, or anything we do or produce — we won’t use real guns at all,” he added.

Johnson further revealed that Seven Bucks will now replace real ammunitions with rubber guns.

“I think the most prudent thing and the smartest thing to do is just pause for a second and really re-examine how you’re going to move forward and how we’re going to work together.

“Any movie we do that Seven Bucks does with any studio, the rule is we’re not going to use real guns. That’s it.”

Recall that the tragic incident that claimed the life of the Ukrainian filmmaker made headlines on October 21. The Western co-produced by Alec Baldwin was set on a young boy who attempts to flee from his home after an accidental shooting.

Falz, Mr Macaroni Reject Sanwo-Olu’s Invite For Peace Walk

Popular rapper Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has described a peace move initiated by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as a “disrespectful joke.”

Sanwo-Olu had sued for peace and harmony, Tuesday, as he broke his silence on the report of the Lagos judicial panel of inquiry into police brutality and the Lekki tollgate shooting of unarmed, peaceful protesters.

The panel’s report indicted the army, police and the Lagos State Government.

The panel had also submitted that what transpired at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020 was a massacre.

Sanwo-Olu had invited Falz, Mr Macaroni, the State Police Commissioner, Civil Society Organisations, among others to take part in what he described as a walk for peace.

Falz said in a tweet that the governor’s “walk of peace” would mean nothing without justice.

“This suggestion of a ‘walk of peace’ sounds like a joke and a very disrespectful one at that. People were murdered in cold blood and absolutely no iota of justice has been served more than a year after. How can there be peace without justice?” the musician asked.

On his part, Mr Marcaroni said in a tweet that genuine peacemaking should begin by first implementing the recommendations of the judicial panel set up to investigate the October 20, 2020 shooting of protesters in Lekki.

He said,
“I humbly decline the invitation of Mr Governor. The Government themselves set up a panel. The panel has made recommendations. I believe that genuine peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations of the panel. Then we can begin to trust the government.

“Mr Governor has said it in his speech that to be a Centre of Excellence, we have to be a Center of Truth. Before there can be healing, the government has to be sincere. There must be acceptance of wrongdoings and willingness to correct them.”
