Will Smith Drops Out Of “Brilliance”

Will Smith has dropped out of Julius Onah’s film adaptation of Marcus Sakey’s sci-fi novel “Brilliance” at Legendary Entertainment.

The book is set in a world where 1% of the children born are savants with special powers.

Smith, who had to depart due to scheduling conflicts, would’ve played a federal agent who has become a master hunter of terrorists must track down a savant terrorist who intends to start civil war.

Legendary had hoped to start filming in August, no word if that’s still the case.
