SCENE & HEARD// Will Smith and Son To Star in New M. Night Shyamalam FilmPublished by Jeremy Clayton on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 2:21 pm.
After landing his second Oscar nod for his role in 2006’s “The Pursuit of Happyness,” actor Will Smith is teaming back up with his co-star from the movie—his 12 year old son, Jaden. The father-son duo will be starring in M. Night Shyamalan’s yet untitled upcoming sci-fi thriller.
According to Shyamalan, it’s been a “dream project” of his to direct a film with the two stars. The untitled film is set 1,000 years in the future where a young boy (Jaden) wonders through an abondoned Earth trying to save himself and his enstranged father (Will) after their ship crashes.
No release date for the project has been released.
