I Am Legend‘s Will Smith is attached to star in the supernatural thriller Selling Time for 20th Century Fox, TheWrap reports.
“The story follows a man who is given a chance to relive the worst day of his life in exchange for seven years off his life expectancy.”
They explain that Smith does not have an official deal in place but he is in the process of coming aboard. Coincidentally, he was attached to star in Selling Time several years ago before scheduling conflicts got in the way.
Several A-list filmmakers are now circling the movie, though no decision has been made yet.
The script was initially written by former DreamWorks Television president Dan McDermott, who will rewrite the script as part of his original deal. Several other writers have taken a crack at the project including Spike Lee and brothers Steven and Derick Martini.
