Warner Bros. Pictures have decided to turn the Will Smith-led 2007 film adaptation of the classic horror story “I Am Legend” into a potential new franchise. This means rebooting the property sans Smith.
The studio has taken Gary Graham’s spec script “A Garden At The End Of The World,” a project described as a sci-fi version of John Wayne’s “The Searchers,” and have decided to retrofit it for the ‘Legend’ reboot. There is reportedly enough similarities Graham himself was brought in to do it.
Akiva Goldsman, James Lassiter, Roy Lee, Joby Harold and Brooklyn Weaver are on board to produce. The original film grossed $586 million worldwide.
