Some set photos have been revealed from M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith’s new sci-fi thriller , “After Earth.”
The story is set 1,000 years in the not too distant future starring Jaden Smith’s character who navigates an abandoned Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.
Originally I had pictured this to be an urban Mad Max/I Am Legend type film, but from the looks of things it might be more jungle base. The script is written by Shyamalan, Gary Whitta and Stephen Gaghan
Last year, President of Columbia Pictures Doug Belgrad had this to say about the project:
Night is an outstanding filmmaker who has a tremendous vision for this science-fiction adventure story and we couldn’t be more excited to be working again with Jaden after our experiences on ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ and ‘The Karate Kid.’ We’re thrilled to have the two of them together on this project.
“After Earth” is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 7th, 2013.
