I Am legend surprised many people when it had the biggest opening weekend for a movie in December, beating the likes of The Lord Of The Rings, King Kong and the first Narnia flick. The movie had continued its success worldwide and has pulled in $335 million so far. Now if The Golden Compass made these numbers, what do you think would happen? A meeting would be held the following Monday and a sequel would be the main topic of conversation. That is not necessarily the case with I Am Legend, however cogs are beginning to turn at Warner Brothers. According to ShockTillYouDrop author Richard Matheson has signed off the sequel rights. Matheson wrote the original 1954 novel upon which I Am Legend film is based. This doesn’t mean a sequel has got the green light, it simply means that if Warner Brothers decided to make another movie to get some extra cash, they could do.
Personally, I think I Am Legend should stay as a standalone film. Will Smith was a huge factor as to why the movie has done so well, and the chances of him returning are slim. What do you think about having another film? Yay or Nay?
