It seems that mega-star Will Smith will be brushing up on the good book for a new film project. Deadline New York is reporting that Smith is lining up a new film project entitled The Legend of Cain to both star in and produce.

The site describes the film as a retelling of the Biblical story of Cain, with Smith to take on the title character. The script was written by Caleeb Pinkett, the younger brother of Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and Daniel Knauf, with Andrea Berloff doing a rewrite.

It was said that no director was attached to the project as of yet and no production schedule was released. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will produce the film along with their Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz.
