Oh happy day, it’s been “officialized”… Will Smith is in for a prequel to the incredibly inexplicable success that was I Am Legend with director Francis Lawrence. D.B. Weiss is the man currently working on the screenplay.
Naturally a sequel without the Fresh Prince was out of the question, so the prequel will follow Smith as Robert Neville when everything was still normal and then the transition to a virus-destroyed humanity.
Considering the movie made over $500 million worldwide, this will surely excite the masses. I kinda-sorta hated the movie, so I’m not one of those people. It had so much potential, but it was so severely mishandled by the director that it was hard to watch. Looking at the fact that he’ll also be doing the prequel, this means certain disaster from my point of view.
