    Will Smith and his son Jaden, 12, are to star in a sci-fi film - their first big-screen appearance together since 2006 drama The Pursuit of Happyness.
    It will feature a boy who tries to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes on an abandoned Earth, 1,000 years in the future.
    M Night Shyamalan will direct and co-write the as-yet-untitled film.

    If Jaden wasn't such a poor actor it might be ok. I have liked just about every movie Will Smith has been in. But I can't say the same about Jaden (not sure that ive seen anything he has been in except Karate Kid)

    For some reason in the last few M. Night films...the acting is sooooooo wooden. His first few films had great acting. Maybe you need the top tier actors to pull his dialogue off. I know Marky Mark couldn't...he was BAD in the happening. Hopefully Smith won't suffer this curse.

    Mr. Night...how do you go from making great films to the worse films out. Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable........to the the happening and last airbender, two of the worst acted films in recent history.

    Hate if you want, Will Smith can make anything entertaining.

    How M Night Shamalamadingdong roped him into a starring role is beyond me though.

    Not every swing is going to be a home run and who knows how it plays out when working with poor talent. Marky Mark was the name at the moment and M. Night either thought he could direct such a dud or the studio or someone else may have pushed for him. I never saw airbender so I don't even know who's in it, but for the most part, great acting a lot time is the product of a great director. He might not be an actors director. He sets a good mood, but he might be limited to that as far as directing goes and like you said needs to stick with actors who can act.

    M Night Shyamalan is still on my you know what list for The Happening and especially for The Last Airbender (part 1). I would cross my fingers for this film, but I'm getting fed up with his work and don't feel like hoping for the best.

    How about Tatum O'Neal in Paper Moon or Natalie Portman in The Professional?

    I'm not getting the hate. The new version of karate kid was atleast a million times better, specifically because this kid actor is that much better then Ralph Machio ever was.

    I thought the new karate kid sucked compared to the original. I won't say machio is a good actor but over all I thought the original movie was at least a million times better.

    I agree. Machio isn't that great of an actor but to say Jaden Smith is better is a bit of a stretch. I didnt hate the new movie but I liked the original much better. I just wish Hollywood could come up with something withour doing remakes
