It was the Black Panther actor who pioneered the idea that revived the sequel that had been buried for years.
A decade after Will Smith put an end to rumors of a sequel, i am legend 2 will indeed be done… with Michael B.Jordan ! He is the actor of Black Panther who came up with a concept exciting enough to convince the actor to return.
Will Smith recount : “I’m a legend, it was one of those films that I was ready not to touch again. And then I heard this idea… I immediately thought that it could work. That we could do it!” In this interview given to Entertainment Tonighton the red carpet of the Santa Barbara Film Festival, this year’s Oscar-nominated star did not reveal anything about the still-secret plot, but says “a really, really cool concept. And Michael B.Jordan is clearly at the basis of the creation of the idea”.
Will Smith thinks his worst movie is Wild Wild West
We therefore understand that if this second part materializes, it will be thanks to Michael B.Jordanwho was able to convince Will Smith that there was something interesting to do in a sequel. It remains to be seen what is this brilliant idea that started it all…
Smith and Jordan will produce together while Akiva Goldsman, who co-wrote the original film, will return to pen. i am legend 2. No director has yet been named.
Remember that in 2007, I’m a legend had gleaned $585.4 million worldwide.
