Jaden Smith is set to star opposite his father, Will Smith, in an upcoming sc-fi adventure flick from director M. Night Shyamalan, Columbia Pictures announced today.
Shyamalan and Will Smith will produce the film about a young boy who tries to navigate an abandoned Earth to save himself and his father after their ship crashes. It is set 1,000 years into the future.
"The chance to make a scary, science-fiction film starring Jaden and Will is my dream project," says Shyamalan.
"Night is an outstanding filmmaker who has a tremendous vision for this science-fiction adventure story and we couldn't be more excited to be working again with Jaden after our experiences on 'The Pursuit of Happyness' and 'The Karate Kid,'" said Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad. "We're thrilled to have the two of them together on this project."
