Will Smith to Return for ‘I Am Legend’ Prequel
Will Smith will return as Robert Neville in a prequel to I Am Legend. The movie, based on the classic Richard Matheson novel, did well enough at the box office, earngin $584 million worldwide, and in home entertainment sales to merit revisiting the bleak world of the near-future.
Director Francisd Lawrence is expected to return to the Warner Bros. film announced yesterday. Akiva Goldsman and James Lassiter will also be back as producers. D.B. Weiss (The Game) will provide a new script that will likely deviate further from the novel.
