I still hate that title: “John Hancock”. What the hell? That sounds so…campy. Then I saw these pictures of Will Smith on the set of (and apparently shooting scenes for) the movie formerly known as “Tonight He Comes”, and it all starts to make sense. I’m thinking Peter Berg and Smith are going for superhero camp with this one, folks. The original title, “Tonight He Comes” elicits images of a serious, kick-ass superhero movie. But “John Hancock”, in conjunction with these pictures of a flying and drinking Will Smith? “Men In Black III” is more like it.
A hard-living superhero (Smith) who has fallen out of favor with the public enters into a questionable relationship with the wife (Theron) of the public relations professional (Bateman) who’s trying to repair his image.
Via JustJared, here are some pictures of Will Smith on the set of “John Hancock”. (Yah, it don’t fill me with confidence that this thing is gonna be good, either, despite the names attached. I mean, it’s Peter friggin’ Berg here…)
