Francis Lawrence Confirms I Am Legend Reshoots; Set to Adapt Palahniuk Tome

A Hollywood ending for the last man on Earth?

Looking for the truth about those I Am Legend reshoots? How about what’s next for the film’s director, Francis Lawrence?

Look no further. Lawrence recently sat down with Collider to discuss exactly those things, even going so far as to share what are being called “major spoilers.” Never fear — we won’t spill ’em here. (You’ll have to click on the link below for that, and listen to the mp3 of Lawrence’s Collider interview.)

Basically, the rumors are true. When asked about the Legend reshoots, Lawrence told Collider:

Yeah, we re-shot stuff, yeah. But we couldn’t re-shoot stuff until we had the effects, because you have to wait for you to have effects and then you can show people to see if there’s anything weird and then you go back and do little pick ups…We shot little pieces here and there throughout, you know? A little piece in the beginning, a little piece in the middle, some in the end.

As anyone who’s read Richard Matheson‘s original book already knows, I Am Legend is based on a story with one of the most un-“Hollywood” endings a person could ask for — or that a studio executive could order reshoots for, whichever the case may be. But while we mull over Legend‘s final act, the director is already moving on; as he tells Collider, he’s got a lot of stuff on his plate:

I’m going to do a pilot next. I’m doing a pilot for NBC called “Kings”…It takes place in an alternate reality. It basically takes place in New York City, but it’s not New York City — and it takes the story of David starting with David and Goliath but transplants it into a modern world. It’s the story of him being chosen to be the new King and the King trying to have him basically assassinated.

Lawrence also spilled info on his upcoming feature films, including an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s (Fight Club) satirical novel Survivor, about the last remaining member of a death cult. He’s also working on Snow and the Seven, something he describes as “basically the re-telling of Snow White in 19th century China…done like House of Flying Daggers.”
