Will Smith is one of the most decorated stars in Hollywood. His movies have raked in millions of dollars in the box office. It appears, Will is ready to star in another blockbuster movie as he inks a deal for I Am Legend sequel.

In 2007, I Am Legend took over box offices worldwide as Smith played a military virologist who is seemingly the last remaining human in New York City after a virus sweeps the world. The virus was initially developed to cure cancer, but things went sideways.

Smith’s character was left alone with his dog in NYC as they avoid, and battle post-apocalyptic zombie mutants. The film was adapted from a 1950s novel of the same name. Deadline reported, Smith has inked a deal for round two with Michael B. Jordan by his side.

Details regarding the plotline of the forthcoming film still remain unknown. This is the first time we see these two generations of extremely talent actors share the silver screen together. Following the sequel’s announcement, fans have speculated about their on-screen chemistry.


Akiva Goldsman, who penned I Am Legend back in 2007, is said to be returning to write the sequel, but news of who is set to direct is yet to be shared. The film was a global hit as it amassed $585 million worldwide and earned several awards and nominations.
