Will Smith and Jaden Smith Team with M. Night Shyamalan

M. Night Shyamalan is returning to the world of "scary science fiction" with an Untitled Science-Fiction Adventure that will reunite Will Smith with his son Jaden for the first time since the two starred in The Pursuit of Happyness (though Will Smith was also a producer on The Karate Kid).

Will and Jaden Smith

We don’t have many details to go on just yet, except that the story is set 1,000 years in the future, and follows a young boy as he roams around an abandoned and scary Earth while he looks for a way to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes. The script was written by Shyamalan and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), and the premise is definitely intriguing.
 
Some would argue that Will Smith is at his best when he’s starring in big-budget sci-fi films, and on paper this sounds sort of like The Road meets I Am Legend, though that comparison could be completely off base since we don’t have any more details about the story. Shyamalan is hit and miss (more miss than hit as of late), but he’s sharing story credit here with a great sci-fi writer, which I see as a good thing. Plus, Will Smith is ridiculously protective over the films he and his son take on, so chances are strong that there’s some fun stuff in this one.
 
What do you think? Willing to give Shyamalan another chance now that he’s teaming with Will Smith?
