Francis Lawrence Sails To The “City”

“I Am Legend” director Francis Lawrence and star Will Smith are set to re-team for the fantasy drama “The City That Sailed” at 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.

Andrew Niccol’s script follows a New York City street magician whose daughter, because of family circumstances, lives in England.

In exploring a lighthouse one day, the girl discovers a room with magic candles and wishes to be reunited with her father, causing the island of Manhattan to break away and drift across the Pond.

Lawrence and Smith’s Overbrook company are developing the project with Lawrence eyeing it as a potential directorial vehicle. He also has two other projects in development at Fox.
