by at . Comments

Will Smith has been pretty dormant ever since Seven Pounds, which premiered nearly a year and a half ago. But it seems that he has now figured out which projects he's going to pursue. Apparently, it's been narrowed down to two.

According to Variety, the actor will either do The City That Sailed or Men in Black 3. We all know that Men in Black 3 would be the same kind of sci-fi action/adventure that made the first two so popular. You can probably bet it'll be in 3D too.

Meanwhile, The City That Sailed is a fantasy adventure that's written by Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show and Gattaca). The story revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer.

Neither Fox nor Sony could comment on the projects.

Will Smith may be our favorite actor on the planet. He can play comedic and dramatic, while maintaining a care-free, down to earth persona away from the camera. Smith has been nominated for multiple Academy Awards and his career first took off acting on the television show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Some of the many films Smith has been in include Bad Boys and Bad Boys II, Independence Day, all the Men in Black movies, Ali, I, Robot, Hitch, The Pursuit of Happyness, I Am Legend, Hancock, and Seven Pounds.
