'I Am Legend' Sequel
A sequel to Will Smith's 2007 thriller I Am Legend is in the works. You might be confused on how a sequel could possibly happen with Smith considering his character died at the end, but filmmakers revealed that the next installment will pick up where the alternate ending of the original film left off. Instead of blowing up the lab, Smith's character was able to survive the zombie invasion of his home by curing one of them and returning her to her partner. The three survivors then traveled to Vermont to spread the cure. Smith will be joined by Michael B. Jordan in the sequel.
