Jada Pinkett-Smith is set to write and direct The Human Project according to FilmJerk. She will produce the film with her husband Will Smith and partner James Lassiter through their production company, Overbrook Entertainment.
The film revolves around Julian Wright, a charming and mega-successful businessman who hides a secret from the rest of the world which tears his soul apart every day. With his personal life in shambles, Julian will find himself willing to travel down the rabbit hole, as it were, when he meets Michael Reed, a gorgeous stranger who entices Julian to forget his rigid corporate world and try a more bohemian lifestyle, a decision that will not only affect his own life but those of his boss and co-workers, as well as inspire his half-sister Rita to re-examine her life with her abusive husband.
No studio is currently signed on to the project.
The film begins shooting in Los Angeles on November 12th.
