Will Smith has teamed up once again with his son Jaden Smith for what is shaping up to be another potential blockbuster hit. The father-son duo will be starring in the sci-fi thriller "After Earth," written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Accompanying the Smiths will be indie darling Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo, playing daughter/sister and wife/mother respectively.
According to the synopsis, the Colombia Pictures film centers on the coming of age of Jaden's character in a strange new world:
"In "After Earth," one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (played by Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance."
"After Earth" is set to be released to theaters in June 2013.
