Will Smith To Do Hancock and I Am Legend Sequels
Will Smith's career is full steam ahead! He's just mentioned the fact that he has full intentions of doing sequels to both Hancock and I Am Legend. If you saw I Am Legend, you know that his character dies at the end of the film, so a sequel doesn't seem possible. But Will insists it's a possibility, along with a prequel to the film as well.

He says, "We have a fantastic prequel idea…we're still trying to work through a couple of bumps in the story. It's essentially the fall of the last city – the last stand of Manhattan. The movie would be…within the body of the movie D.C. and then Manhattan would fall as the last city. It's a really cool idea trying to figure it out…there's a reason why we have to take a small band and we have to get into D.C. So we have to make our way from New York to D.C. and then back to New York."

As for Hancock, Will has talked about a sequel happening in the near future. A source tells The New York Post, "He is ready to do both. Producers are just trying to get Charlize Theron to sign on for the Hancock sequel."

Sequels are all the rage in Hollywood right now, with studios just looking to cash in for as long as possible on certain movie brands. But do you think sequels for Hancock and I Am Legend are a good idea? Will Smith could really do no wrong when it comes to making movies. He brings in an audience regardless of what kind of movie he makes.
