New film roles for Smith and son

Will and Jaden Smith will star together in M Night Shyamalan's new film

Will Smith and his son Jaden are teaming up again on the big screen.

The two last starred together in the 2006 drama The Pursuit of Happyness.

They will work on an as-yet-untitled science-fiction adventure for Columbia Pictures, a unit of Sony Corp.

M Night Shyamalan is directing and co-writing the movie starring the 42-year-old father and his 12-year-old son.

Shyamalan also directed The Sixth Sense and The Last Airbender.

Sony said the movie centres on a boy struggling to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes on an abandoned Earth a thousand years into the future.

As they did on their son's 2010 hit, The Karate Kid, Will and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith will be producers on the new movie.

Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
