Hollywood stars Will Smith and Michael B. Jordan team up for their new project. They will collaborate in the sequel of famous film ‘I Am Legend‘. Akiva Goldsman will write the screenplay for Warner Bros Studios’ next feature.
Following the announcement, Will Smith turned to Instagram to publish a teaser video that spells out the connection. He included Jordan in the image as well. The novel of the same name by Richard Matheson published in 1954 served as the basis for the 2007 film. However, specifics regarding the upcoming sequel of ‘I am Legend’, like its premise and who will direct it are scant at this time.
The previous film ‘I Am Legend’ directed by Francis Lawrence. It featured Will Smith in the role of virologist Robert Neville. He happened to be the only survivor in New York City of a man-made plague that transforms humans into bloodthirsty mutants. The film follows Neville as he fights to find a cure for the plague.
Jordan and Elizabeth Raposo will produce the follow-up feature under their Outlier Society banner. Smith and Jon Mone as well as Goldsman and Greg Lessans will oversee the production. Ryan Shimazaki will serve as an executive producer.
