I am Legend - news

Empire have indicated that Will Smith has been offered a pay or play contract to star in I am Legend. I must admit that the news has left me somewhat cold. Somehow I just can't see this working out. That said I was one of the doubters that thought Tom Cruise would kill Lestat, and I was happy to eat humble pie when I saw the release, so maybe it won't be too bad... that said.

This is not good news. Not good news at all. I'd much rather see an unknown talent in this role. Or at least someone I respect as an actor.

Damn. Not good news.

I don't disagree - I don't think Will Smith has the gravitas to carry the role - you need a top rate actor, given that 90% of the movie the actorwill be on his own

I also don't want to hear a movie inspired song from the man.
