Originally slated as the second starring vehicle for Jaden Smith post-“The Karate Kid”, the M. Night Shyamalan-helmed “One Thousand AE” will now instead star both Jaden and his father, Will Smith. THR reports that father and son will be starring in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie together, the plot of which goes like this:
Set 1,000 years into the future, the movie centers on a young boy who navigates an abandoned and sometimes scary Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.
Shyamalan, coming off the much-derided “The Last Airbender”, will direct from a script by he and “The Book of Eli’s” Gary Whitta.
“One Thousand AE”, which may get a new title soon, will be a “scary, science-fiction” according to Shyamalan.
