New York, Feb 18 (ANI): Warner Brothers is developing a prequel of the sci-fi action adventure 'I Am Legend,' and Will Smith is reportedly in talks to reprise the role of Robert Neville in the new film.
According to Deadline.com, Producer Avika Goldman, who also co-wrote the first movie's script, has already signed on, the New York Daily News reported.
In the 2007 blockbuster, Smith played Robert Neville, who ends up being one of the last human beings on Earth after a plague turns the rest of the population into raging monsters.
The film that was based on Richard Matheson's 1954 novel - though the vampires from the book were replaced with zombie-like CGI freaks for the big screen - earned 585.3 million dollars worldwide.
Buzz is that the new movie would focus on the events that led to the apocalypse that leaves Smith's character, the sole resident of New York City. (ANI)
