Family Business: Will Smith To Star With Son in M. Night Shyamalan Flick
By: Erica Ho - Time
The Smith family is turning the Hollywood biz into a family affair.Will Smith and son Jaden [Smith] plan to co-star in a new M. Night Shyamalan-directed flick.
Shyamalan, best known for great movies like The Sixth Sense and some not-so-great movies like The Happening, is sticking to the genre he knows best. The untitled movie is a futuristic sci-fi story set 1,000 years set in the future. A young boy and his father, presumably Smith and Smith, crash into an unknown, empty Earth. NewsFeed assumes there will be a twist ending.
Jaden's mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, is co-producing the Shyamalan flick, along with dad Will Smith himself. Jaden is no stranger to acting either. He starred in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid.
Update-September 8, 2011: The M. Night Shyamalan film now titled “One Thousand A.E.” with Will Smith and Jaden Smith is now set to hit theaters on June 7, 2013 with filming slated to begin in early 2012.
