Will Smith to star in The Legend of Cain… a Vampiric tale?
Rumour has it that Will Smith will be starring in the coming film The Legend of Cain. The movie is a unique take on the biblical tale, in as much as… Cain is a vampire.
We will be reserving judgment until the film is out of its infant stages.* The script has been written by Dan Knauf and Caleeb Pinkett, the younger brother of Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. Currently it is being rescripted by Andrea Berloff, writer of World Trade Center, so that it can be pitched by Overbrook Entertainment.
Smith, playing Cain, will be co-producing the epic-biblical-fantasy-thriller with James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz and Jada, partners at Overbrook.
We will have to sit tightly before this one hits our screens, as Smith is due to start shooting Men in Black III next month. Now there’s a blast from the cinematic past.
*Though let’s be frank here, it sounds a bit idiotic.
