 In a cinematic revelation that will set hearts racing, Hollywood heavyweight Will Smith has spilled the beans on the much-anticipated sequel to the 2007 sci-fi blockbuster, I Am Legend.

Released to critical acclaim, the original film secured its status as a cult classic, grossing an impressive $256.4 million in the US and a staggering $585.4 million worldwide. Now, after years of fervent speculation, Smith confirms that the sequel is not just a mere whisper but a tangible reality.

Joining forces with Black Panther sensation Michael B. Jordan, the duo is poised to ignite the screen with their on-screen chemistry. Addressing the elephant in the room – Smith’s character’s demise in the original film – the actor revealed at the Red Sea Film Festival event, “We are going with the mythology of the DVD version.” For those not privy to the alternate ending on the DVD, it’s a game-changer that resurrects Smith’s character, Robert Neville.

Amidst the excitement, Smith teased fans with a glimpse into the pre-production stage, sharing, “I have a call with Michael B. Jordan tomorrow. We’re really close, script just came in.” While details of Jordan’s role remain shrouded in mystery, the anticipation surrounding his involvement adds an extra layer of intrigue.

Diving into the creative vision for the sequel, producer Akiva Goldsman offered a tantalizing glimpse into the plot, stating, “I’m obsessed with The Last of Us, where we see the world just post-apocalypse but also after a 20-30-year lapse.” Goldsman envisions a visually stunning portrayal of New York, exploring how nature reclaims the world when humanity takes a step back from its dominant role.

Drawing inspiration from Richard Matheson’s eponymous book, Goldsman assured fans that the sequel would weave an enthralling narrative. As whispers of I Am Legend 2 being in the works circulate, enthusiasts express optimism about the film’s potential to ‘bring cinema back.’

“The fact that we’re getting an I Am Legend 2… cinema is coming back to us,” declared one fan on X. Another chimed in, saying, “Will Smith, I Am Legend 2. Cinema really making its way BACK I hope.”

As the industry buzzes with excitement, a release date for the film remains tantalizingly elusive, adding an extra layer of anticipation for fans eager to witness the resurrection of this iconic sci-fi saga.
