Warner Bros. Plans Next 'I Am Legend' With Will Smith
Reported by Outsiders - 12:27 PM 2012.02.17
Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. is working out the finer details over the deal with Akiva Goldsman and Overbrook Entertainment to do another installment of I Am Legend.
Until the script is completely written by Arash Amel, Will Smith won't commit. If Smith agrees with the script than he will reprise his role as 'scientist Robert Neville, who was the last man on earth doing battle with a mutated mob in New York City after an apocalyptic man-made virus wiped out the population.'
No word if the original I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence will commit and the studio has not established if the next movie will be a sequel or a prequel based on Smith’s character’s demise at the first film’s end?
