Will Smith has become attached to star in 20th Century Fox's supernatural thriller Selling Time. The actor was actually attached to the project years ago when it was first in development, although he had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

The story follows a man who is offered the chance to relive the worst day he has ever had. However, in exchange, he has to give up seven years of his life expectancy. Several A-list directors are currently circling the project, although no one has signed on yet.

Dan McDermott (Eagle Eye) wrote the original script, which was also worked on over the years by Spike Lee, Steven Martini and Derick Martini. Dan McDermott is coming back to do another rewrite, under the terms of his original deal.

John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment company, alongside Jennifer Klein. No production schedule was released.

Will Smith most recently starred in After Earth. He will next be seen in Focus alongside Margot Robbie and Rodrigo Santoro.
