Warner Bros. has official confirmed this week that they are working on a prequel to I Am Legend. The big question is does anyone want this? What if I told you Will Smith will once again star?
Director Francis Lawrence is said to be returning to the helm and developed the prequel story along with Smith. The storyline is to follow the last days of humanity in New York before the virus destroys the world. Will Smith will reprise his role as Dr. Robert Neville. The script is being penned by D.B. Weiss who has pretty much zero under his belt as of yet.
I Am Legend became a surprise hit for Warner Bros in December of 2007 taking in more than $250 at the box office. So, it’s not a surprise that they’d like to revisit the world created in the second remake based on the novel by Richard Matheson.
Are you excited for this?
