It’s being reported that Will Smith will co-produce the second installment of “I Am Legend’ through his Overbrook Entertainment company. Although it’ unclear if he will have a leading role in the sequel, reports do note that there is a potential for the actor to star in the film.

The 2007 horror thriller starred Smith as the last surviving human in a New York cityscape overrun by monsters that survived the plague that killed most of humanity.

Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith had a small role in the original film. Although both Smith’s characters died in the original theatrical film, an alternative ending, released for the DVD version, drew positive reactions and would allow a continuation of the story from the first film, as it saw Mr. Smith’s character survive.

Smith is currently filming M. Night Shyamalan‘s “After Earth” with his son, Jaden Smith in Costa Rica.
