Will Smith talks I AM LEGEND prequel

Just a few hours ago I attended the press day for “Seven Pounds” and was able to participate in a roundtable interview with the biggest movie star on the planet….Will Smith.

 

As most of you know, Warner Bros. has started working on a sequel to “I am Legend” and while it was first reported as a prequel, word has started to spread that it was, in fact, a sequel. But if you’ve seen the movie, you know a sequel might be tough to pull off with Will Smith as the main character.

 

Add to that, when fandom got wind that they were working on a prequel; let’s just say most didn’t think it was a good idea.

 

So when I got to ask my question, I asked if “I am Legend” was a sequel or prequel and I also asked Will what excited him about returning to the character. Here’s what he said:

 

Collider: Speaking of Robert Neville and I am Legend, there has been a lot talk about you possibly doing a prequel or sequel to that film. Could you tell us what it is and what excites you about going back to that character?

 

Will Smith: We have a fantastic prequel idea…we’re still trying to work through a couple of bumps in the story. It’s essentially the fall of the last city – the last stand of Manhattan. The movie would be…within the body of the movie D.C. and then Manhattan would fall as the last city. It’s a really cool idea trying to figure it out…there’s a reason why we have to take a small band and we have to get into D.C. So we have to make our way from New York to D.C. and then back to New York.

 

Question: Will the dog be back in it?

 

Will Smith: Yes, the dog will be a puppy.

 

 

I have to say…after hearing Will’s description of the movie; I think this idea could work. Imagine a big road movie with a few characters having to fight their way somewhere and then returning and having to protect the last city.

 

While I still think Will should do an original property and not return to the Robert Neville character, I am way more excited to see this than before.
