Emotional: Discussing the 1863 photograph of Whipper Peter on which the film is based, Will told Vanity Fair: “Every single one of Peter’s scars now has a story behind it.”

Emancipation is based on the true story of an 1863 photograph taken of a slave known as Whipped Peter, particularly for the number of painful whipping scars on his back.

“Each of Peter’s scars now has a story behind it. There is a man behind the image. A man who has endured visible and invisible atrocities that are beyond my imagination,” the father of three continued.

Emancipation will open in select theaters early next month on December 2 and will be available to stream on Apple TV+, just in time for Oscar season.

The actor had originally planned to attend a screening of Emancipation and wow the audience, but due to test results, he had to cancel those plans.

The action star showed no signs of illness, but he did make exaggerated cries of pain as he rotated the test swab around his nostrils, and was surprised when an hour later he received a positive result.

Instead of speaking to the audience in person, the Oscar winner met with them via Zoom, sitting in front of a laptop.
