Will Smith to reunite with David Ayer in the Max Landis penned Bright

03.02.2016

We haven't yet witnessed David Ayer and Will Smith's first collaboration with SUICIDE SQUAD, but the pair seem keen on keeping that relationship going. Deadline reports that Smith and Ayer are part of a new action spec package which is currently making the rounds by the name of BRIGHT.

Originating from a script by Max Landis (CHRONICLE), the film will be a cop thriller with fantastical elements which Variety says will be similar to Ayer's END OF WATCH, only it will be set in a world in which Orcs and fairies live among the human race. The Wrap reports that one of the protagonists will come in the form of an Orc cop. Interesting. BRIGHT doesn't have a home currently as bidding on the project is just warming up, but at the moment the package has David Ayer set to direct with Will Smith and Joel Edgerton attached to star in the film.

A synopsis for SUICIDE SQUAD:

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

SUICIDE SQUAD is set for a August 5, 2016 release.

I hate Max Landis. Aside from his ego which needs to be taken down a few pegs, this guy has the least creative movie ideas. Chronicle was mediocre at best, I know everyone heaps such huge praise on it. But watch it a few more times. The movie is just pieced together from ideas from other movies. Which leads me to believe that most of his ideas come from getting stoned while watching other movies and playing with action figures.

Can anyone seriously tell me that American Ultra isn't just

Can anyone seriously tell me that American Ultra isn't just combining Pineapple Express with the Bourne Identity? And this movie? Combining Alien Nation with World of Warcraft? I hope this movie keeps up the trend of his downward spiral from success.

Yeah, I agree regarding his lack of creativity in movies, but I've read goof things about his Superman comic series, so he might have some talent.

That's not how it works. The sins of the father do not pass down to the son. It's not something you inherit. There are reasons to dislike Max Landis, but don't blame him for something his father did.

Is WIll going to cry and have his wife fight his battles if he doesn't get nominated?

I really hate how Will Smith has turned into this guy who thinks he is owed stuff just because he is in a drama... Concussion was not that great. But because it is based on real life and is a drama, Smith automatically said he deserved a nomination even though it wasn't directed well, the script was boring and the acting sucked. I do believe more roles should go towards non-white people but they can't complain if they don't get nominated. Straight Outta Compton was good but not Oscar worthy at

I do believe more roles should go towards non-white people but they can't complain if they don't get nominated. Straight Outta Compton was good but not Oscar worthy at all. Mad Max wasn't even that good but it got all the shitty awards to keep young people interested and viewer numbers up. Each year an action movie gets nominated for the youth crowd even though it doesn't deserve anything. If it walked away with 8 awards, why did the one movie that didn't win any other awards win best picture??

Max Landis, and Will Smith both suck. The only positive aspects about this film are Ayer, and Edgerton.

This sounds like a risky premise. I'd wager the only way it works is if it's rated R and made using practical effects. If it's filled with CGI it'll land straight in the bargain bin on top of ten thousand copies of R.I.P.D.

Can't wait for it to eventually not do well and Landis to cry like a bitch.

Sounds Like A Riff On 'Alien Nation' Or 'Almost Human'

It could be good or more likely a disaster. I keep thinking of 'I Robot' and how it didn't engage me as compared to Asimov's writing. Will Smith isn't exactly guaranteed box office gold these days.

THAT'S IT!!!! I was trying to figure out what this seemed like. And your comment nailed it! The premise is a mix of Alien Nation and World of Warcraft.

Sounds terrible. I usually like the actors but Landis just writes movies that can be pitched "this movie mixed with this movie." Bourne identity mixed with pot jokes. That novelty can work sometimes but it's just showing Landis isn't all that creative.
