Will Smith and son Jaden are to star in a sci-fi film together.
This isn’t the first time they’ve been in a film together, the pair starred in The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006, where they played father and son.
They will take the roles of father and son again, but this time the film is about a son trying to save himself and his father after their ship crashes on an abandoned Earth, 1,000 years in the future.
From the sound of it, Jaden is the leading man on this one, leaving dad Will to be the supporting actor. Will is however working as co-producer with his wife Jada, so it really is a family affair. We wonder if Willow will be penning the soundtrack?
The project which currently doesn’t have a title, will be directed by M Night Shyamalan, who also co-wrote it. We’re not sure how we feel about Shyamalan directing. Of course he wrote and directed the sensational The Sixth Sense, but his most recent effort The Last Airbender was nothing short of appalling, so he’s going to really have to up his game to impress this time.
Speaking about the project Shyamalan said:
“The chance to make a scary, science-fiction film starring Jaden and Will is my dream project.”
Well, we’ll have to wait and see if it’s a dream come true or a nightmare for us viewers.
