Will Smith wanted for an “I Am Legend” sequel?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Will Smith is a franchise in and of himself. Virtually every time the man touches a motion picture, the studio he’s in business with begins planning sequels. And rightfully so. Smith movies make bank. Why wouldn’t you want to stay in business with him?

Not every project lends itself to a continuation, however. Sometimes, the story just ends. I thought that was the case with Smith’s post-apocalyptic “I Am Legend,” where he played the last living man on the planet fending off a community of starving vampire creatures. Yet we’re getting back into the “Legend” business.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, the massive sci-fi hit raked in $585.3 million worldwide, so a sequel – while not obvious – could be called inevitable. And now it appears to be happening.

Deadline says Warner Bros. has closed deals with Akiva Goldsman and Overbrook Entertainment to create a second “Legend.” The obvious direction would be to do a prequel (for reasons I won’t reveal here).

Smith says he’ll hold off on committing until he’s seen a script, and that’s smart. But really, how are you going to do another “Legend” without Smith? You’re not. Plain and simple. So, if they get a “Legend” sequel off of the ground, are you interested? Or should Hollywood, despite the profits on the first one, leave well enough alone?
