Although the status of Will Smith’s involvement with 20th Century Fox’s Independence Day 2 remains to be seen, TheWrap reports that Smith has boarded another Fox project with science fiction overtones. The outlet brings word that Smith plans to headline Selling Time for the studio.
Selling Time, originally scripted by Dan McDermott, follows a man who trades seven years of his life expectancy for the chance to relive a single day, the worst day of his life, over again.
Smith last starred opposite his son, Jaden, in M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth. He’ll soon star opposite Margot Robbie in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s grifter tale, Focus.
John Davis and Jennifer Klein are producing Selling Time through Davis Entertainment.
