We got the news finally about Shyamalan’s yet to be titled film. According to Sony the film is going to be hitting the big screens on June 7, 2013. It’s starring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. A story about a young boy who navigates through a abandoned and sometimes scary Earth to save himself and his father.

Will Smith is wanted by Quentin Tarantino

It was announced few weeks ago that Will Smith will not only be producing, but starring next to his son Jaden in M.Night Shyamalan’s new sci-fi untitled project which is written by Gary Whitta and Mr. Shyamalan himself. But let’s put that aside now, for they are still working on it. You will be updated on that here.

Now Mr. Shyamalan’s main actor, mega star and talented Will Smith is also wanted by Quentin Tarantino for a project that Mr. Tarantino has written. He calls it, ‘Django Unchained.’ The screenplay has been making hollywood rounds for weeks and one of the leads is Mr. Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Basterds’ Academy Award winning star, Christoph Waltz who is playing Dr. King Schultz.

Mr. Tarantino claims that he wrote the screenplay with Will Smith in mind. The story centers on a slave turned bounty hunter on a mission to rescue his wife Broomhilda from her sadistic slavemaster. And insiders are claiming that Will Smith is willing to work, for he’s been looking for edgier roles. Mr. Tarantino stated that he also offered a juicy supporting role to Brad Pitt who decided to not pursue the role at this time.

Mr. Tarantino does not have any distributors yet, but it seems like Harvey Weistein is going to be handling the project, for they have been handling Tarantino’s previous films. Looks like Will Smith’s plate will be full for three next years as he is signed to work with Mr. Shyamalan, in Bary Sonnefeld’s Men In Black 3 and now ‘Django Unchained’. Which film of Will Smith are you looking forward to the most?

Exclusive: Night’s next project is ‘One Thousand A.E.’

M. Night Shyamalan is in town this week, working on putting together his next directorial effort which will see him working with Will Smith.

But it won’t be the secret untitled project he shopped around in June. That script, which came with Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper and Gwyneth Paltrow loosely attached, never found a buyer and was quietly shelved.

That’s not to say Shyamalan has lost his love for secrecy — sources are saying Shyamalan is developing an ultra clandestine sci-fi project titled One Thousand A. E., being developed at Overbrook, the production company Smith runs with James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz and Jada Pinkett Smith. And unlike most of Shyamalan’s oeuvre, to which his most recent film The Last Airbender is an exception, A.E. is not written by Shyamalan.

That honor goes to Gary Whitta, who wrote The Book of Eli and Undying, his in-development Kurt Russell project.

Plot details are under lock and key although it is known that A.E. is being developed as a vehicle for Jaden Smith. There is a starring role for an adult male, although sources said Will Smith is not taking it on.

A.E. has no studio home yet although Overbrook has a first-look deal with Sony, which will likely be its home.
