It is 7pm on January 23rd. The air is crisp as winter has set in. I’m at the South Street Seaport in New York City, where the usually serene landscape has just been over-run with citizens fleeing the island in terror. It seems a plaugue is ripping its way through the populace, turning ordinary humans into nocturnal, bloodthirsty creatures.
Time to get the hell out of Manhattan.
This is the set of Francis Lawrence’s I Am Legend, the third adaptation of Richard Matheson’s classic novel. Tonight was the first night of shooting at the Seaport, where the shared thought among extras on hand was, “Holy shit, it’s cold!” Told to dress for the weather, toting luggage to appear to be trying to escape the city, the hundreds of extras will be fleeing for 6 long days. We’ll be watching the progress of this film very closely, so for now enjoy the pics!
