Michael B Jordan provides update on I Am Legend 2 plans with Will Smith – Movie News | Film-News.co.uk

Michael B. Jordan is “still working on the script” for ‘I Am Legend 2’.

The 37-year-old actor has given a major update on plans for a sequel to Will Smith’s 2007 blockbuster, and it’s still “in the works” after it was first announced as in development more than two years ago.

Jordan – who will star in the film alongside Smith – told People magazine: “We’re still working on the script and getting that in order.

“There’s no release date or anything like that. I don’t know exactly where we’re going to film it, but I’m really excited to be in front of the camera with him.

“Being someone I’ve been looking forward to for a long time, being able to work with Will is something I’m really looking forward to. I’m very excited.”

In the first “I Am Legend” film, Smith, now 55, plays scientist Robert Neville as the sole survivor in New York City, in a world where a disease turns people into zombie-like creatures.

Francis Lawrence directed the film, which was an adaptation of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name.

Last month, Smith gave his own update on the sequel, noting that he and Jordan were still working together to make sure it hits the right notes.

He told Entertainment Tonight: “We had a few weeks together about a month ago. I think it looks good.

“(We have some) really solid ideas… I think we’ll do it together on screen. That guy is the truth, so I’d love to do that.”

Smith wants to make sure a sequel can “stand on its own,” which became his standard for “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” when he returned to the franchise with Martin Lawrence.

He added: “I told myself (what) I would never do to the fans: make a sequel just because it would be cool to have a sequel.

“This one meets my standards.”
