In recent years Will Smith hasn’t made that many movies, but he’s now considering a new one, as TheWrap reports Smith is in early talks to star in Legendary Pictures and Universal’s sci-fi thriller Brilliance.
David Koepp (Jurassic Park) came up with the script, based on the Marcus Sakey novel. The book is set in a world where special individuals known as ‘brilliants’ have heightened abilities. The plot follows a government agent whose ‘brilliant’ gift is tracking down terrorists. However he may have met his match when tasked to find a dangerous man in Wyoming with his own set of special skills.
The film could become the start of a franchise, as the novel is the first of a planned trilogy.
Julius Onah is set to direct, although it’s not clear when it will shoot.
