Jaden Smith and Sony Pictures are no strangers when it comes to working together to make blockbuster hit movies.
Jaden is said to be in talks with Sony and Overbrook Entertainment to star in the movie version of the Allen Zadoff novel, “Boy Nobody.”
According to Variety, Sony beat out 20th Century Fox in negotiations for the film, but “no deal has yet closed.”
In the style of “Twilight” and ‘The Hunger Games,” the story is planned to be a trilogy about a teenage boy that is a trained assassin and starts getting back his emotions, although he was trained to be void of them.
Jaden, who is currently working on the M. Night Shyamalan project, “After Earth” with his father Will Smith, is sure to be a perfect fit for the “Boy Nobody” lead.
