Say what you will about M. Night Shalamidong, if you’ve seen any of his films since Lady in the Water, you know that he’s really committed to this whole becoming-the-worst-director-in-the-universe thing. It’s actually kind of impressive. Movies as bad as Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender usually only come along once in a generation. Of course, none of this applies if you have a “European sensibility,” in which case he’s great. (*inhales fart, spreads own poop on baguette*).
His next project stars Jaden Smith, because at this point, why not, and it’s called After Earth. It’s a sci-fi film that tells of a dystopian future where all the actors have died off and all that’s left are the obnoxious wiener kids of megalomaniacal celebrities using them as living extensions of their “brand.” The big twist at the end is herp-a-derpaly hee haw (*fart noise*)
Incidentally, the picture came from Jaden Smith’s WhoSay account, accompanied by the caption “#afterearthswag.” Now, I know Chet Haze would probably disagree with me on this, but I’m of the opinion that kids born into millions of dollars shouldn’t use the word “swag.” Having self-confidence isn’t much of an achievement when you’ve inherited an army of people whose job it is to kiss your ass. What you’re thinking of is “brag.”
Anyway, here’s the real information:
Currently filming in Costa Rica, the pic centers on real-life father-and-son Will and Jaden Smith as they crash land on an abandoned Earth a thousand years in the future. Jaden’s character must fight to survive and save both himself and his injured father. From screenwriters Stephen Gaghan (TRAFFIC) and Gary Whitta (THE BOOK OF ELI). |JoBlo|
