Words tweeted by director M. Night Shyamalan late last night. 

And if you haven't been paying attention, he's talking about the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi action/adventure project 1000 A.E. that he, M. Night Shyamalan, is directing.

A brief recap... the post-apocalyptic a father and son (Will and Jaden of course) 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 were "in talks" to star as sister/daughter and mother/wife respectively, and I assume they are now in the movie.

And you all thought that they'd just cast Willow and Jada. Psssht! :)

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.

I'm guessing both the sister and mother roles will be peripheral to the core story between father and son, in what will likely be more of a coming-of-age tale (or coming-into-his-own) tale with Jaden as the real star of the film.

So this should be Will's next after Men In Black 3, which will be released this summer.
