Warner Brothers are actively developing a sequel to the post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller I Am Legend! Not only that, but Akiva Goldman, the screenwriter for the original will be returning to pen the script and lead actor Will Smith will also be reprising his role (despite his character having died at the end of the first movie).
In addition to Will Smith's confusing return, the sequel has also reportedly cast Michael B. Jordan in an undisclosed role.
Plot details are still unknown but given Smith's role reprisal we can assume the sequel will likely follow the Richard Matheson novel (of which the first movie was based on) more closely. In Matheson's novel, Will Smith's character does not die and actually leaves the city with a few survivors.
Currently no director has been tapped to helm the project, however.
