This story broke yesterday and for some reason every movie blog on the internet is reporting it. It comes from one of AICN’s infamous anonymous sources, one who even they say is untested. And he has some *important* news about the I Am Legend prequel.
Let’s start at the beginning. Will Smith is actually the one who developed the initial story. It took place several years before the original film and there were still pockets of survivors and the story centered around Smith interacting, bonding, and ultimately failing to save them. For months this was the story. Warner’s didn’t much care for it and Smith and Weiss eventually came on board and all parties agreed to change things up. Well this change is pretty insane, the film is no longer a prequel, it’s a f-cking sequel! [AICN]
So, to recap, some random guy on the internet says a movie in which Will Smith dies at the end is going to have a sequel, and everyone reported on it. Join us tomorrow for exclusive commentary on the dump I just took! Ooh look, there’s some nice marbling on this one…
