I Am Legend 2 - S: Will Smith, Michael B. Jordan

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. is really upping the stakes to its I Am Legend franchise to a stratospheric level and bringing back for the next chapter, not just original star Will Smith, but heíll be joined by Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan in what will rep the duoís first big movie together as stars and producers. Talk about two big stars getting together, between Smith and Jordan combined, their movies have grossed a massive $12.3 billion at the box office.

Plot details, of course, are being kept under wraps.

Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman, who adapted the Richard Matheson 1954 novel, is also returning to pen the follow-up and producer as well.

All these deals are closed, I understand, and a director is not attached as of yet as the project is still being developed. Francis Lawrence directed the original 2007 movie.

Well, that'll be interesting. I assume Alice Braga would return?

Enjoyed the first one but wondering what they'll cover in this one.

Still disappointed the Ridley Scott / Arnold version didn't happen.

So I guess either the alternate ending will be made canon, or maybe they'll go full Alien: Resurrection and clone him

I see no need for this. Guess Will Smith is going back to the well for more cash grabs.

No movie is "needed" but if they pitched a story that the studio liked and is willing to pay for, then who are we to say it's not needed? You don't have to see it if it doesn't interest you.

No thanks to this, or the first.

The other two adaptations are okay, not great.

This is a great book that deserves a great adaptation.

Very aware. Still doesn’t necessitate making a sequel unless Smith needs dat cash. It’s not like we’ve been reading that people have really wanted a sequel. Just cash grabs. Sure, I’m sure the story will be gold, but…”it’s under wraps.”

I feel like I Am Legend was OK, and thus object to all the hate being bandied about.

As long as they fix the horrendous CGI mutants. Those cartoons didnít help an already below average first movie.

Iíd only be down for this if they can CGI in Vincent Price and Charlton Heston and make this the No Way Home of Richard Matheson movie adaptations.
