Will Smith wants to get into vampire territory with The Legend of Cain

07.16.2010

Looks like Will Smith wants to go the way of BLADE.

Smith has attached himself to play Cain, in THE LEGEND OF CAIN. But this isn't the same Biblical tale your used to.

This according to Deadline is the "epic re-telling of the Biblical sibling tale, with a vampire twist". Okay, now even I'm getting tired of the vampire trend. How does this go? What will Cain offer his vampire master to reject him? Will he bring him a body filled with cold blood?

Smith will produce with his partners from Overbrook Entertainment, his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. The script was penned by Caleeb Pinkett and Dan Knauf (CARNIVALE), with Andrea Berloff (WORLD TRADE CENTER) revising. No studio or director has signed on for the project as of yet.

I can get behind the writing of Knauf, but I'm a little pessimistic on the overall project. Maybe it's not so much the vampire thing I'm tired of, perhaps it's Smith. I'm so-so when it comes to him these days. With one project I'm on board with him, another I'm not. I guess we'll just see when this thing further develops.

Extra Tidbit: I did watch the hell of out some FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR though. "I pulled up to the house around 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabby, 'Yo Homes! Smell ya later!'"

Check out Wills planed movies. Only MIB3 is in production, but more important a lot ! of movies in development.

[link]

Guess the word here is "sequels", but really, I don't mind:

Independence Day 2 and 3, I Robot 2, Hancock 2, Bad Boys 3, I Am Legend 2 etc.

Will usually delivers, even in drama, the Pursuit of Happiness is a solid movie and also imo; ID2-3 will be interesting. ID is the only Roland Emmerich movie worth watching.

I see I'm not the only one that though of Legacy of Kain when I saw this. Before reading the story, I thought that maybe this was some kind of adaptation and they just spelled Kain wrong.

But Smith as a vampire? I'm not sure I can buy that, but we'll see. I'll hold off judgement until I hear/see more.

A vampire movie I would like to see is one based from the Legacy of Kain video game series. Still I don't think i've ever seen anything about the first vampire before ,might be interesting.

Straight out or White Wolf

And they do have a history of suing when people tread to close.
Also, Will Smith had the option to do a Vampire movie, and instead made his version of "I am Legend."

right out of White Wolf

sounds like someone has finally interpreted White Wolf's vampire theology into a movie. Smith wouldn't be my choice, but I suppose they could do worse.

So Cain is the first vampire?

Is that it? He leads the way to a new race of undead beings?
So far, I say fuck this. I mean "Aww, hell, naww!"
