Oh snap, son! Will Smith is about to get jiggy with a pair of fangs for a new version of an old Bible tale that comes complete with vampires. Seriously. Not making this one up.
According to Deadline New York Will Smith has attached himself to star in and produce The Legend of Cain, an epic re-telling of the Biblical sibling tale, this time with a vampiric twist. In the film Smith will play Cain. The script was written by Caleeb Pinkett and Dan Knauf, with Andrea Berloff revising.
As of now the film is without a studio or a director, but given Smith’s star power, we expect that to change soon.
In the Hebrew Bible Cain and Abel are two sons of Adam and Eve. In the Greek New Testament Cain is referred to as “from the evil one“, while others have translated it as “of the evil one.” Some interpreters take this to mean that Cain was literally the son of the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
