The news arrives days after Will Smith provided an update on one of Michael B. Jordan’s next roles, which will see the 36-year-old actor star alongside Smith in a sequel to 2007’s I Am Legend.
During a conversation at the third Red Sea International Film Festival, Smith revealed the I Am Legend 2 script has been completed. Smith’s character died in the first film. However, in the alternate ending that’s found on the film DVD, he survives. The new film will be a continuation of that story line.
“So we are going with the mythology of the DVD version where my character lived,” Smith shared. “I can’t tell you any more.”
