R.I.P. I Am Legend Prequel

i am legend prequel is dead

Good-night, I Am Legend prequel; And flights of executives sing thee to thy rest!

After years of inactivity, the proposed prequel to Will Smith's 2007 vampire movie I Am Legend is officially dead.

Here's what I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence said when asked about the prequel:

"No, I don't think that's ever going to happen."

Don't worry about it, Will Smith fans! You've still got Men in Black III to look forward to…and maybe even some Independence Day sequels, assuming those end up happening!

If the studio execs out there were truly smart, they'd also put the Final Destination franchise out of its misery. Just sayin'!

Are U sad to hear that the I Am Legend prequel is dead?

    I am legend was not a vampire movie, the badies had a virus, they weren't the undead… Come on Perez, do you even watch any of these movies you report on?? You should give me a job as your personal proof reader!! think of the awesomeness I could bring

    Doesn't surprise me, his character DID die in the end, and a sequel without Will Smith wouldn't be worth watching or making.

    Re: Cheezey – Agreed.. No vampires. They could be called zombies at the most

    Vampire? Did you even watch the movie

    if you are spending money on a will smith movie, you are in effect, supporting scientology because will smith contributes to that organization because he is one.

    Come on Perez… whether it's you writing or someone is writing for you… DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!!!!

    I swear, I'm this close to never returning to this site. The inaccuracies are atrocious! It's like every post has an error, a lie or a bullying tactic to make yourself feel better.

    I Am Legend was NEVER a vampire movie… get it together!

    ALRIGHT ALL YOU FUCKS! Though i understand Mario is a buffoon, the BOOK "I am Legend" was about VAMPIRES. So he's not entirely mistaken.

    And for all the piece of shit trolls on this site, here is the PUBLISHERS REVIEW from amazon.com:

    "One of the most influential vampire novels of the 20th century, I Am Legend regularly appears on the "10 Best" lists of numerous critical studies of the horror genre. As Richard Matheson's third novel, it was first marketed as science fiction (for although written in 1954, the story takes place in a future 1976). A terrible plague has decimated the world, and those who were unfortunate enough to survive have been transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Except, that is, for Robert Neville."

    Since they fubared the original anyway… no.

    Re: Annie Gee – This post is about the MOVIE not the novel…. I don't remember Will Smith being in the novel

  15. 15

    Re: Annie Gee – Yes,the book IS about vampires, but the movie IS NOT. Wario just needs to actually report facts about the movie.

    I am glad they are not making it, He died in the first one - so that should be the end of it, also the original didn't impress me very much at all. About Men in Black III, I have heard that it has had alot of script problems because Will Smith never likes the script. aybe he is just too busy working on his children's careers now. Maybe that is what he should be doing -he is their manager after all.
