While promoting Seven Pounds Will Smith spoke to Collider about the I Am Legend prequel we’ve been hearing about. Turns out they have a pretty cool idea for the prequel, and the coolest news of all is that we will once again get to see Sam the dog!
Collider: Speaking of Robert Neville and I am Legend, there has been a lot talk about you possibly doing a prequel or sequel to that film. Could you tell us what it is and what excites you about going back to that character?
Will Smith: We have a fantastic prequel idea…we’re still trying to work through a couple of bumps in the story. It’s essentially the fall of the last city – the last stand of Manhattan. The movie would be…within the body of the movie D.C. and then Manhattan would fall as the last city. It’s a really cool idea trying to figure it out…there’s a reason why we have to take a small band and we have to get into D.C. So we have to make our way from New York to D.C. and then back to New York.
Collider: Will the dog be back in it?
Will Smith: Yes, the dog will be a puppy.
