It’s a sign of the coming apocalypse. In what seems like some kind of future dystopian nightmare come true, Will Smith, his son Jaden and much maligned director M Night Shyamalan are to make a movie together.
In the so far untitled movie set 1,000 years in the future, Jaden Smith will play a boy trying to find his way around an abandoned planet after his spaceship crashes there. Will is down to play his father with Shyamalan at the helm.
“The chance to make a scary, science-fiction film starring Jaden and Will is my dream project,” Shyamalan said in a statement, desperate to retain any shred of credibility after The Last Airbender was slammed so hard by critics, the original print can now be found somewhere near the earth’s core.
Will Smith will also produce the movie along with his wife Jada, Ken Lassiter and Ken Stovitz. Stovitz might not be a familiar name but he’s worked with Smith before – on 2008’s Seven Pounds and last year’s cynical reboot of The Karate Kid. But the cinematic treats don’t stop there; it’ll be written by Gary Whitta, the man behind the 2009’s awful Book Of Eli.
Forget War, Famine, Pestilence and Death, the movie apocalypse will be heralded by its new horsemen: Nepotism, Misdirection, Smuggery and Twat.
