Sony wants Jaden Smith to be their teenage assassin for Boy Nobody
The spawn of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith has another movie lined up.
When Jaden and his dad are finished up with M. Night Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH, it looks like Jaden will move on to play a brainwashed teenage assassin.
The film, BOY NOWHERE was picked up by Sony after they beat Fox for it. Allen Zadoff's novel, as I said is about "a brainwashed teenaged assassin who begins to regain his emotions." The book is due out next Spring. If Jaden signs on, he will be strapped down to a franchise with this one.
Zadoff described his main characters as, "young soldier trained not to feel; who could function in every situation without fear, sympathy or anger; who could assassinate strangers and then walk away emotionally unscathed."
