Will Smith to Play a Superhero in (Mid-Life) Crisis

by | December 1, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that mega-star Will Smith and director Jonathan Mostow will team up for "Tonight He Comes," an action flick about an aging superhero who must contend with an annoying identity crisis.

"Smith will play a disaffected and underappreciated superhero in a mid-life crisis. Akiva Goldsman and Michael Mann will produce with Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner, James Lassiter.

Mostow has just been signed to a rich holding deal while the budget process takes place.

The script languished until Goldsman set it up at Artisan with production head Richard Saperstein, simply because it was the "Da Vinci Code" scribe’s favorite script. Mann became attached to direct, and when he instead opted to helmhelm "Miami Vice," Artisan put the pic in turnaround."
