Flowers for Will Smith

11.09.2009

Is Will Smith trying to grab some Oscar gold by dumbing down (and then smartening up)?

According to Pajiba, Smith may be producing and starring in an adaptation of Daniel Keyes' acclaimed sci-fi story FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON.

The story follows a mentally handicapped man who undergoes an experimental procedure that increases his intelligence until he reaches genius level, only to then find himself a social outcast. Ultimately he learns that the experiment's origin, the titular mouse, is deteriorating.

The material nabbed an Academy Award for Cliff Robertson when adatped into 1968's CHARLY. Although it didn't do quite as much for Matthew Modine and the 2000 TV version.

Extra Tidbit: Let's hope Will learned a lesson from Kirk Lazarus.

I know the original was completely serious but...

Anyone else wanna see a dramedy? Kinda like Hitch, except when he's really slow and when he's extremely intelligent...

I am yet to hate a Will Smith movie, some have been underwhelming, but I have not hated any of them. I read this story in school, and am interested in how he does.

"I'm getting stoopid again? AW HELL NAW!"

Had to be said.

I think this could be the role that gets Smith his Oscar, personally.

That was my first thought as well. That will be the lasting impact of what was at the end of a day a mediocre movie.
