Looks like there is no stopping the multi-talented Smith family.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Hollywood heavyweight Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith are set to star alongside each other in an upcoming untitled sci-fi movie to be directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The announcement was confirmed by Columbia Pictures president, Doug Belgrad on Monday.
Speaking on the project, Belgrad said:
“Night is an outstanding filmmaker who has a tremendous vision for this science-fiction adventure story and we couldn’t be more excited to be working again with Jaden after our experiences on The Pursuit of Happyness and The Karate Kid. We’re thrilled to have the two of them together on this project.”
The film is set 1,000 years into the future, and centers on a young boy who navigates an abandoned (and sometimes scary) Earth in order to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.
This won’t be the first time that the Smith men have co-starred in a film together. They both appeared in the hit movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” in 2006.
