The father and son combo of Will and Jaden Smith warmed hearts with their first feature film together, Pursuit Of Happyness, back in 2006. The Smiths are once again joining together to shoot the new sci-fi blockbuster “1000 A.E.” in Costa Rica, according to a tweet from the film’s director this week.
“Crew leaving for Costa Rica already. A year and half of writing and prep is coming to an end. #AfterEarth will begin shooting on Feb. 6th,” tweeted M. Night Shyamalan on Monday.
In “1000 A.E.,” an injured father and son crash land on a ravaged planet Earth after an apocalyptic event. Although the son doesn’t possess the heroic nature of his father, he must do his best to find help. The film is set for a July 2013 release.
While not much else has been revealed of the script, savvy movie buffs have been hearing rumblings that Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo will also star in the film. Teen actress Isabelle Fuhrman is also confirmed for the film.
Will Smith will hit the big screen again in a third film for the popular “Men In Black” series alongside Tommy Lee Jones. “Men In Black 3” hits theaters this coming May.
