For a while now, Will and Jaden Smith has been attached to M. Night Shyamalan’s planned new sci-fi movie, 1000 A.E.. Now it appears the director is filling out the rest of the cast, as THR report that Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class) and Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) are both in talks to join the film.
1000 A.E. is set in the future when humans no longer live on Earth after it became inhospitable. The elder Smith is playing a hero, while Jaden is his son, considered a failure as a warrior. When the two crash-land on Earth, it is up to the son to save the dad and prove himself.
Assuming the women do sign on made, Kravitz would play Smith’s daughter, while Okonedo will portray his wife. The current plan is to start shooting early next year for release in 2013.
