Will Smith joins son Jaden in M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi film


Sony Pictures Entertainment announced on Monday that Will Smith will join his son, Jaden, onscreen in an untitled sci-fi film for director M. Night Shyamalan. According to the studio, the film is set 1,000 years in the future, where a young boy navigates an abandoned and sometimes scary Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes. Said Shyamalan in a release: ”The chance to make a scary, science-fiction film starring Jaden and Will is my dream project.” (The younger Smith first hinted at the prospect of the project to EW last November, when it had the title 1000 A.E.)

Shyamalan, most famously the director of 1999′s The Sixth Sense, has had some troubles with critics and at the box office lately (see: The Last Airbender) and could certainly use some of the Smith family’s box-office fire power. Will Smith and Shyamalan will produce the film along with James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Ken Stovitz. The screenplay is by Shyamalan and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli). The Smiths last costarred in 2006′s The Pursuit of Happyness, and Will Smith produced Jaden’s 2010 remake of The Karate Kid, which grossed more than $350 million worldwide.
