Sometimes studios can really take logic out of movie making for the sake of making a buck. We heard rumors earlier this year of a prequel being made to the Will Smith blockbuster I Am Legend. It sounded pretty decent, and according to Cinematical, Smith himself had come up with a plausible story for the film.
“Smith is actually the one who developed the initial story. It took place several years before the original film and there were still pockets of survivors and the story centered around Smith interacting, bonding, and ultimately failing to save them.”
More on the sequel after the jump.
Without being too spoilery, a prequel would be the only way another I Am Legend movie starring Smith could get pulled off…..logically. Unfortunately, Warner Brothers has other plans for the movie, and have decided to scrap the idea for the prequel in favor of a sequel. Yes, you read right, a sequel. As in a continuation of the events that occurred in the first film. If you’ve actually seen I Am Legend, you can understand the skepticism surrounding this next film. Supposedly, director Francis Lawrence, and Smith are still on board, but how in the world are they going to pull this one off?
