In a bombshell announcement, Hollywood icon Will Smith revealed that a long-awaited sequel to his 2007 hit film, ‘I Am Legend,’ is officially in the works, and it’s set to star none other than Michael B. Jordan. Smith shared this exciting update during an appearance at the Red Sea International Film Festival, sending fans into a frenzy of anticipation.

During the event, Smith mentioned that he’s scheduled to have a call with Michael B. Jordan to discuss the project. He revealed, “We’re really close, script just came in.” Smith, who portrayed the protagonist in the original film, dropped a tantalizing hint about the sequel’s direction. He said, “You have to be a real ‘I Am Legend’ buff to know this, but in the first, theatrical version, my character dies, but on the DVD there was an alternate version of the ending where my character lived. We are going with the mythology of the DVD version.”

While Smith remained tight-lipped about further details, the confirmation of Michael B. Jordan’s involvement adds another layer of excitement to the project. The original ‘I Am Legend’ was a massive box office success, grossing $585 million worldwide in 2007. It was the third adaptation of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name.

During the discussion, Smith also opened up about the challenges of fame and his journey of self-discovery, acknowledging the “tons of mistakes” he’s made in life. He emphasized the importance of staying true to one’s mission and not depending on external validation.
