As Hollywood continues to stream out remake after reboot after sequel it appears that one Hollywood superstar is set to benefit from the lack of original ideas. Will Smith has made a large amount of successful movies over the years and it seems some of those movies are getting sequels.
In 2008, Will Smith appeared as a messed up superhero in the movie Hancock and since the success of that movie, it has been tipped for a sequel for some time. While Hancock 2 rumours have circulated for quite a while, there has not been much movement on it. However, both Will Smith and director Peter Berg have admitted that they are interested in doing a Hancock sequel.
I Am Legend 2 is a movie that would prove much more difficult to make, considering the fact that Will Smith appears to die at the end of the film. However, we do not actually see him die so maybe they can come up with a way of making him survive. The likelihood is though, that they will look to do a prequel to I Am Legend which sees the outbreak of the virus from the start. Arash Amel is currently working on a script for I Am Legend 2, so watch this space.
I, Robot is another Will Smith movie which has been touted for a sequel and , while there has not been much going on with it at the moment, it is believed that Ronald D. Moore is on board to pen a screenplay for I, Robot 2. There were also rumours that I, Robot 2 is being lined up to be released in 2015 but that has not been officially confirmed.
As well as the three movies mentioned, there have also been rumours of Bad Boys 3 and Independence Day 2 movies being made. We cannot see how Will Smith could possibly make all of these movies and it will be interesting to see which ones do actually get made.
Which Will Smith movie would you like to see a sequel to?
