Variety is reporting that Warner Brothers is planned a prequel to last year’s hit film I AM LEGEND. The article says, "The plan is for Will Smith to reprise his role as scientist Robert Neville, with Francis Lawrence returning to direct. Akiva Goldsman and his Weed Road banner will produce with James Lassiter, Smith’s partner in Overbrook Entertainment."
"The studio has set D.B. Weiss to write a script that is based on a detailed outline that was hatched over the past few months by Smith, Goldsman, Lassiter and Lawrence."
"The prequel will chronicle the final days of humanity in New York before a man-made virus caused a plague that left Smith’s character the lone survivor among a mutated mob in the city."
A ultimate edition DVD set of I AM LEGEND is due out on December 9th just in time for the holidays. Details HERE!
