Congrats to young Jaden Smith!
It seems being the young son of one of the most powerful movie producers in Hollywood has its benefits.
Hollywood Reporter is saying that Jaden Smith has been picked up for the M. Night Shyamalan Science Fiction movie “One Thousand A.E.”
Shyamalan will be working with the Production Company “Overbrook” which is run by Jaden’s real life mom and dad Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Set 1,000 years into the future, the movie centers on a young boy (Jaden) who navigates an abandoned and sometimes scary Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.
While the plot is being kept uber-scecret, it is known that the film was written specifically as a vehicle for Jaden. There is a main male lead but that actor has not been signed – nor has Will Smith expressed an interest in the role.
At just 13 years-old, Jaden is no stranger to the movie and music biz. In addition to his father being Will Smith, he just recently starred in “The Karate Kid” and sang the title track “Never Say Never” alongside Justin Bieber on his world tour.
