No surprise here... I've been expecting this, since I think we all heard the rumors that a sequel/prequel to that 2007 blockbuster (almost $600 million worldwide gross) was coming.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has confirmed those rumors, and is moving ahead with the follow-up project, having now officially closed deals with writer Akiva Goldsman (he wrote and was a producer of the first Will Smith film) and Overbrook Entertainment (Will Smith's production company) to do another installment of I Am Legend.

Relative newcomer Arash Amel has been hired to pen the script this time.

Will will of course reprise his role as scientist Robert Neville.

My question is what exactly would they do with the story's continuation, especially if it's a sequel instead of a prequel?
