Deadline is reporting that Will Smith is set to produce and star in “The Legend of Cain,” a film described as a biblical tale with a vampire twist. Wow, it seems as this vampire fad is taking over!!!
Smith will reportedly play Cain, a crop farmer in the Biblical story of brothers Cain and Abel, a shepherd. Cain is portrayed as sinful, committing the first murder by killing his younger brother after God rejects his offerings of produce, but accepts the animal sacrifices brought by Abel.
He’ll produce with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz.
Smith, meanwhile, begins production on “Men in Black III” in August.
