I AM LEGEND 2: Patient Zero (2023) Trailer Teaser – Will Smith – Zombie Movie – Concept
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW!!!
In early March, Deadline reported that Will Smith had signed on to star in and executive produce a sequel to “I Am Legend.” Shortly after the report’s release, Smith seemingly confirmed the news on Instagram when he posted an image of the post-apocalyptic version of Manhattan from the first film.
In addition to Smith, the sequel will also star “Black Panther” and “Creed” actor Michael B. Jordan, who is set to executive produce the film alongside his co-star.
Akiva Goldsman, who co-wrote the 2007 adaptation of “I Am Legend,” is set to write the Jordan and Smith-led sequel. As of this writing, it is unclear if “I Am Legend” filmmaker Francis Lawrence will also return to helm the sequel, or if it’ll be another filmmaker who ultimately sits in the director’s seat for the follow-up.
The film’s plot is similarly unknown right now, and it does not currently have a set release date.
Asked about the announcement in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Smith refused to offer any big plot details, but called the idea for the film “a really, really cool concept.”
He also said, “It was one of those [movies] I was gonna leave alone.” However, Smith admitted he quickly reconsidered once he actually heard the exact pitch for the sequel. “But that might work,” Smith said. “I think we can do that.”
With two massive stars like Jordan and Smith attached to the project, it seems safe to assume that it won’t take long for more updates and details to start surfacing about “I Am Legend 2.”
