One of the big hits today in Hall H was the upcoming David Ayer’s fantasy/ police drama, ‘Bright’, which stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and Noomi Rapace. The script comes from Chronicle writer Max Landis and is set up to be a cross between Training Day and Lord of the Rings.
“Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.”
