As if the 2007 revisionist take on Richard Matheson’s classic I Am Legend wasn’t enough, Ain’t it Cool News is reporting what the upcoming prequel/sequel might be about.
Rumors of a prequel had been burbling forth for quite some time. This latest round of gossip seems to suggest the prequel idea has been scrapped in preference for making a true sequel. There are some obvious bottlenecks to work through, such as how in the world can they work Will Smith into the sequel when his character ended the last film in a rather inanimate state commonly known as “dead”.
Here’s my guess: writers will create a twin brother for Robert Neville, played also by Smith. He’ll be the black sheep of the family, living a rather free spirited and possibly somewhat criminal life, all while his twin brother joined the military and studied science. Now he’s forced to further his brother’s legacy by actually pretending to be him, so that the “Legend” can live on to give the masses hope. Robert Neville’s twin must come to grips with old sibling rivalry while assuming the role of his visionary lost brother, and so lead the last remnants of humanity against the vile vampire scourge!
More details will be reported as they are revealed!
