Will Smith is reportedly working on a modern-day revival of his hit 1990s show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reports TV Line.
Smith is said to be in the very early stages of “developing a present-day Fresh Prince reboot that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series.”
It isn’t clear if the program will be a full reboot or a follow-up in the same continuity. Smith is only expected to produce the project along with Jada Pinkett-Smith, Caleeb Pinkett, and James Lassiter.
No writers or actors have been announced. The project joins the growing list of 1990s shows scoring revivals including “The X-Files,” “Twin Peaks,” “Full House,” “Coach,” and “Xena: Warrior Princess”.
Speaking of Smith, some comments made by Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman to THR this week indicates Smith may only produce the recently announced third and fourth film in the “Bad Boys” franchise, but his decision hasn’t been made as yet.
