Deadline reports that a sequel to I Am Legend is currently in the works, with Will Smith returning to star and executive produce, alongside Michael B. Jordan who will also star and act as producer. This will be the first time that both actors star with each other in the same film.
The script is being written by Akiva Goldsman, who produced and co-wrote the first film, with Mark Protosevich. The first movie was directed by Francis Lawrence, though it’s unclear if he will be coming back to helm the sequel. No director is currently being attached to the project.
Plot details, release date, and production dates are kept under wraps, but the film would likely get a 2024 release if the movie starts shooting next year after the script is finished being written. More details could definitely arrive sooner than later.
