*He’s still the action-fantasy star!
Will Smith is in early talks to star in “Brilliance” — a sci-fi thriller.
The film will be directed by Julius Onah of “God Particle” while David Koepp wrote the movie adaptation of the movel by Marcus Sakey.
The film will be produced by Joe Roth, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, and executively produced by Alex Hedlund, Palek Patel and Eric McLeod.
The film will focus on people called “brilliants” — born with heightened cognitive abilities. Smith will play a federal agent whose great at hunting terrorists with his extraordinary gift.
“Brilliance” could very well be a three-film series unless the third film gets split in two, which is pretty popular with epic movie series of today.
This three-picture deal could happen as “Brillance” the novel is part of a three-book deal.
But Smith doesn’t have to worry about starring in another epic movie series right now though.
His next film is a con man comedy called “Focus” with Margot Robbie.
