Will Smith to play Cain

Even Hollywood box office king, Will Smith, is getting on the bandwagon. Apart from working on Men In Black 3, he is set to also do a The Legend of Cain and is even producing the said movie along with Overbrook Entertainment partners Jada Pinkett Smith (his wife), James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. The script was written by Caleeb Pinkett and Dan Knauf, with Andrea Berloff revising.

The story of Cain is based on the Bible with Will Smith playing the title role of Cain, the world’s first original “bad boy” as the press releases are saying. But since this movie will be an updated version, the story will contain a lot of twists and will, in fact, have vampires among the characters.

Before he takes on the Old Testament, Will will reprise his role as Agent J in “Men In Black 3,” which begins production this summer. The film is currently slated for a summer 2012 release.

  1. Hmmmm, not sure how that will turn out, I’d like to see them stick to the original story, but that probably wouldn’t be a draw at the box office!
