Movies of the week
Has the actor had enough of aliens in ‘Men In Black’ film series?
If Sony’s initial plans for a new big screen project reach fruition, Will Smith will rub shoulders will blood-hungry vampires or maybe their sight will make him sprint away to maintain his human existence.
This has been a year of unorthodox thoughts streaming into the silver screen. In that context, the last time we saw the former American president Abraham Lincoln teamed up with the vampire theme, but the bold initiative bombed at the box office. Anyway, the Hollywood is trying its best to insert vampires everywhere, whether it’s recounting events from the past or delving into religious beliefs. They want to bring something extra on the board, but it’s like wielding a double-edged sword, as we have already seen.
I welcome back the man of the moment, Will Smith, into the context. Sony has plans to flag-off, ‘The Redemption of Cain’, a movie with Will Smith in the lead, based on the mythical story of Cain and Abel. The production house is thinking on the lines of re-imagining of the tale with the inclusion of a vampire angle!
Well, you can say either that’s a masterstroke or a recipe for disaster! Only time will tell, the pendulum of luck swings which way.
The movie will not go under production sometime soon. It is slated to be filmed in London and Jordan in the mid of 2013.
