After years of waiting, a sequel to I Am Legend is finally coming, Deadline reports . Not long after the announcement, Will Smith revealed his opponent. None other than Michael B. Jordan will appear on the silver screen with him.
I Am Legend with Will Smith came out in 2007 and is the third film adaptation of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name. Matheson never wrote a sequel to the book, so the plot of the new film is still unknown.
The sequel to I Am Legend will be written by Akiva Goldsman, who is also responsible for the screenplay of the first film. It is not yet known who will be the director. The former I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence already said in 2018 that he does not want to participate in a sequel to the popular film. So it remains to be seen when the recordings will start.
Will Smith is ready to revisit one of his signature roles.
