First Look At Jaden Smith In Costume From "1000 A.E." Set

As already reported, shooting is underway for the sci-fi/adventure project 1000 A.E., starring father/son pairing Will Smith and Jaden Smith, directed by M. Night Shyamalan

The cast and crew are in Costa Rica currently, and have been sharing photos from the set over the last week. I've ignored all of them thus far, because they really didn't reveal much of anything... but this one was compelling enough to post. It actually shows the young Jaden, sporting a new haircut (not all that new), in costume.

A brief recap... the post-apocalyptic flick centers on a father and son who crashland on an earth that has become uninhabitable, and the son, considered a failure as a warrior, is put in a position in which he has to save his father, who has already proven his worth as a hero.

Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo co-star star as sister/daughter and mother/wife respectively.

Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana) was recently brought on to polish up Shaymalan's script (a very good idea IMHO), and Colombia Pictures is said to be planning a June 2013 release.

  • Donella | February 16, 2012 12:34 PM

    Sad the individual who has to dwell on the mix heritage origin of Sophie and Zoe. The last time I checked world Zoe and Sophie, live in perceived them as Black/People of Colour, what you chose to call us! Skin tones shades aside. This casting of this movie is an achievement within itself, of four strong actors of colour. And its M Night Shaymalan

    Zoe and Sophie are mixed race couldn't Will Smith hire two real black women for the wife and daughter roles? There are plenty of black women in Hollywood who aren't half white that deserved a chance.

  • Akelah | February 16, 2012 11:32 AM

    Speaking as a "real" black woman I think you sound ridiculous Orville, I mean seriously when will black people get over the whole "black enough" or dark enough stigma. Just be happy its not Blake Lively/Sharon Stone cast as the mother daughter. Sheesh

  • Logic | February 16, 2012 1:22 AM

    Couldn't help but lol @ real black woman. Is there some sort of test one takes to qualify for that title? DNA? Multiple choice?

  • Ali | February 15, 2012 11:40 PM

    Are you going to complain about the lack of chances Gabrielle Union gets to shine now?

  • ok | February 15, 2012 11:21 PM

    really?? you're really complaining that they're mixed??? lololol...

  • jmac | February 14, 2012 11:39 PMReply

    What? Four black people in a film!

  • JMarie | February 14, 2012 9:46 PMReply

    Jaden is growing fast! I like the cast!

    Reminds me of an updated Dune stillsuit. Which was a pretty good design to start with.

  • B | February 15, 2012 8:29 PM

    Thanks for the design compliments. It was definitely difficult to overcome the influence from Mr.Ringwood's amazing Stillsuits. How could we make such a suit exciting, seemingly functional, and flexible and yet not seem like a Dune clone? We spent lots of time on it, working through its "systems", making sure it was its own. Big challenge, fun process, and good result I think. Should be cool in action.

  • Donella | February 15, 2012 4:42 PM

    Very Paul Atredis.

  • Jug | February 14, 2012 7:47 PM

    Costume actually looks hot, even if Jaden looks asleep LOL Just really prayin' Gaghan's "polish" is code for "total damn re-write & burn the other script STAT" LOL

  • Tamara | February 14, 2012 7:43 PM

    "pretty good design to start with" OH YES! I loved "Dune" :)

    Jaden looks good. Will incarnate.

    Hero-ship. Ah, just what I wanted to talk about. Can't wait to see this.
