Karate Kid star Jaden Smith,12, could be joining up with director M. Night Shyamalan for a new film project:
The “Last Airbender” director is said to be developing a top-secret sci-fi flick called “One Thousand A.E.,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, and is eyeing Jaden Smith to star in it.
Jaden’s parents, who produced “Karate Kid,” are reportedly getting in on the action too. Shyamalan is said to be developing the film for Overbrook, the production slate run by Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and others.
Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but what we know now is that while Shyamalan plans to direct “A.E.,” he will not pen the script, a departure from most of his previous work. Scripting duties are being carried out by Gary Whitta (“The Book of Eli”)(Source).
