I Am Legend Prequel to Be a Sequel After All?

Some interesting developments come forward in this Will Smith follow-up.
BYBrian Gallagher | November 25th, 2008

We reported two months ago that Warner Bros. was moving forward with a prequel to last year's hit film, I Am Legend. Now it seems that I Am Legend 2 might indeed be a sequel after all... somehow. Ain't It Cool News recently had a scooper email them about the new film, indicating that it might be a sequel after all...

Let's start at the beginning. 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. For months this was the story. Warner's didn't much care for it and Smith and Weiss eventually came on board and all parties agreed to change things up. Well this change is pretty insane, the film is no longer a prequel, it's a f*&^ing sequel!

The site also said that they had never interacted with this scooper before, so this news should be "consumed with a grain of salt." Of course, the studio hasn't commented on the development of I Am Legend 2 and the news is fairly tricky since Will Smith didn't exactly make it out of the first film unscathed...

We'll certainly keep you posted on any developments concerning I Am Legend 2.
