From book to the big screen
Will Smith will be starring in a new action movie called I Am Legend based on the scary novel by the same name.
Here is what Amazon.com has to say about the book by Richard Matheson:
"One of the most influential vampire novels of the 20th century, I Am Legend regularly appears on the "10 Best" lists of numerous critical studies of the horror genre. As Richard Matheson's third novel, it was first marketed as science fiction (for although written in 1954, the story takes place in a future 1976). A terrible plague has decimated the world, and those who were unfortunate enough to survive have been transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Except, that is, for Robert Neville. He alone appears to be immune to this disease, but the grim irony is that now he is the outsider. He is the legendary monster who must be destroyed because he is different from everyone else."
You should know that I am not a fan of this kind of book or movie. Vampires and science fiction combined with horror? No. Basically you would have to pay me to sit through something like this and even then I would not sit in my seat. Since Will Smith is on board with the project you know it's going to be a blockbuster film. Jada Pinkett Smith should totally be cast as one of the vampires, check out that picture above!
