Yeah, so, we already know about the feature film, and the fact that Sony Pictures will be releasing it next summer, and I'm sure a lot of you have already started counting down the days leading up to its eventual release; but would you be just as interested in a novelized version of After Earth?

Alright, alright, this is not a new topic but given the latest discussion surrounding the casting of Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo as Idris Elba’s ex-wife in the upcoming thriller No Good Deed (see Tambay's post HERE), I thought I’d revisit this seemingly recurring “trend.” S&A contributor Emmanuel wrote a piece last year called, “Is Interracial Coupling on TV Meant To Soften The Blow Of Casting Black Leads?” which gives further insight on interracial coupling; his piece focused on Black/White pairings mostly.

Last I wrote about this was almost exactly a year ago... an update this morning (courtesy of MTV) says that writer Tim Dowling (This Means War) (who was hired last year to pen the script) has finished and turned it in, and that Will Smith and Denzel Washington are still very much attached to star in the roles originated by Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby in the 1974 film.
