Writer Reveals Details For "I Am Legend 2" That Never Happened

Writer Reveals Details For "I Am Legend 2" That Never HappenedSubmit Comment
While promoting his upcoming "Winter's Tale" film, Akiva Goldsman spoke about the sequel to Will Smith's "I Am Legend" that never actually happened despite the fact that the first movie grossed almost $600 million at the box office.

So why didn't we get a sequel? "Oh we tried," he said. "There were scripts. We really tried. We wrote a prequel [and] a sequel. We had a really interesting prequel, which was the first outbreak of the virus, during a Thanksgiving Day parade, which was awesome. We did [another] really interesting prequel that [took place] later, which was right after the first [outbreak]. Right when the population of humans became pretty decimated. And it was this sort of trek to Washington. Which included a dark seeker elephant that had broken out of the zoo."

It was a year after "I Am Legend" hit theaters that Smith started talking about a prequel being in the works, teasing that his dog would return, but as a puppy. Then in 2012, Smith was in talks for an "I Am Legend" sequel, but the actor didn't like the script. A few months later, it was revealed that "I Am Legend 2" was dead, mostly because Smith was refusing to make any sequels.

"Right when the population of humans became pretty decimated."

Decimated means one of ten destroyed, but if IIRC, Will Smith's character was one of the few people left alive. In the novel, he was the last of mankind.

So methinks that word doesn't mean what you think it means.

And yes, I know decimated, in more modern parlance, means more than one-tenth destroyed, but the dude was called "The Omega Man" for a damned good reason.

lol, Smith really f*ckered his career, didn't he? No Bad Boys 3, NO ID4 2, no I Am Legend 2.

Then there was that After Earth fiasco.

All that time trying to prep his damned talentless kids for careers denied.

Smith can go f*ck himself ; all his recent movies suck sh*t. He could at least try to do some decend sequel or prequel but he likes BS like after earth. Call it a career 10 years ago Will and go f*ck yourself.

^^ Tanman32123 please don't show IGNORANCE you gerbil licker, The sequel was going to be a Prequel where it shows the downfall and decay of the human race. Don't just blatantly assume! Same for you Dirt.

Good. Will Smith hasn't done a great movie since Enemy of the State anyway. If he never acts again, I for one, will not miss him.

So Will Smith is the sole reason another movie wasn't made.

He just might be my hero.

well if it's a prequel you technically wouldn't need smith anyway since and since he died in the first one you wouldn't need him in a sequel

Don't worry, once his career really goes down the pan he will be screaming for the sequels, prequels and god knows what else.

Doesn't do sequels...well I guess he must have had a brain fart and forgot he did "Bad Boys 2"...and that looks like he isn't doing "Bad Boys 3".
