We learned late afternoon yesterday that the sequel to Will Smith’s fan favorite Horror ‘I Am Legend’ that went by the same title of the classic horror novel. Here is what the director had to say about his upcoming sequel.
“We trace back to the original Matheson book, and the alternate ending as opposed to the released ending in the original film,” he continued. “What Matheson was talking about was that man’s time on the planet as the dominant species had come to an end. That’s a really interesting thing we’re going to get to explore. There will be a little more fidelity to the original text.”
I am excited that they will use Matheson book as more inspiration for the film. ‘The Omega Man’ may be my personal favorite adaptation from the book even it didn’t follow it page by page. I Am Legend 2 seems like it wants to be more accurate to the book then any of the previous adaptations.
I Am Legend was a huge box office success gaining up to 77.2 Million opening weekend. As well as making 329 Million internationally.
So what are your thoughts and expectations on I Am Legend 2 also knowing that Michael B. Jordan will be joining Will Smith this time around.
