Smith To Resurrect I Am Legend

WILL SMITH is to revive his role in futuristic action movie I AM LEGEND for a prequel.
Director Francis Lawrence has confirmed he is working on a follow-up to the hit 2007 film and Smith's character Dr. Robert Neville will return to complete the beginning of the story.
Lawrence says, "Absolutely (there will be a prequel), we're actually trying to crack that. We're trying to figure out some ideas for it, but yes, it would be a prequel."
And the moviemaker insists that filming the follow-up will be much easier than working on the original, because the crew will not have to shut off large areas of New York City again - a move that sparked chaos among commuters and city workers.
He adds, "The first time you go out there and shut down 6th Avenue, it's like, 'How are we going to do this day after day after day?' But by the end, it's just like you know how to do it.
"You got the PAs (personal assistants) who know how to shut it down, how to let the traffic through in between set-ups and you just sort of get the routine down, so that's not the issue."
