I Am Legend Gets A Prequel
Director Francis Lawrence told ShockTillYouDrop at Comic Con that he is planning a prequel to the successful 2007 flick I Am Legend.
According to Lawrence, Will Smith is interested in reprising his Robert Neville role from the original. He hinted that the movie might take place during the winter, so the abandoned New York that we saw in the first one could be covered in snow this time around so it wouldn't be monotonous for the audience.
I thought the first one was a solid film, but I'm not quite sure how they could make a prequel that would hold our attention for two hours without rehashing the same things they did in the first one. This is just in the planning stages now anyway, so we'll see if anything comes of it.
