M. Night Shyamalan is ramping up his next directorial effort, 1000 A.E., which'll star Will Smith and his son Jaden (who stared in and was impressive in last year's far-better-than-it-should've been KARATE KID remake).
...sci-fi action adventure, in which humans no longer live on Earth after it becomes inhospitable. The elder Smith is playing a hero, while Jaden is his son, considered a failure as a warrior. When the two crash-land on Earth, it is up to the son to save the dad.
Sophie Okonedo (OBE) will play Smith's wife. Okonedo appeared as Tatiana in HOTEL RWANDA, although Geeks may better remember her as Liz Ten - the gun-welding Queen Regnant of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in two recent DOCTOR WHO episodes ("The Beast Below" and "The Pandorica Opens").
