Will Smith has attached himself to star in and produce The Legend Of Cain, an epic re-telling of the Biblical sibling tale, this time with a vampiric twist, reports Deadline. Smith will play Cain, the original Bad Boy, and he will produce with Overbrook Entertainment partners Jada Pinkett Smith (his wife), James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. The script was written by Caleeb Pinkett and Dan Knauf, with Andrea Berloff revising. In the Hebrew Bible, Cain and Abel are two sons of Adam and Eve. In the Greek New Testament, Cain is referred to as “from the evil one”, while others have translated it as “of the evil one.” Some interpreters take this to mean that Cain was literally the son of the serpent in the Garden of Eden. No studio or director yet for the Overbrook project. In August Smith begins filming Men In Black 3D.
