Will Smith Talks Spielberg's Chicago Seven, Alternate I Am Legend Ending

He's just waiting on the script from "Steve."

He isn’t even finished with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull yet, but why should we let that stop us from speculating about Steven Spielberg‘s next movie?

Until recently, the assumption had been that Spielberg would move on to his long-planned Lincoln biopic after Indy 4, but one of the other projects on his always-crowded plate, The Trial of the Chicago Seven, looks like it’ll be served up first.

The Chicago Seven rumors gathered steam after Vanity Fair listed Will Smith, Taye Diggs, Adam Arkin, Kevin Spacey, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as already being attached to star in the picture, which follows the — you guessed it — trial of a group of protesters who helped disrupt the 1968 Democratic convention.

Now, Collider (via Brazilian sister site Omelete) reports that Smith has kinda-sorta confirmed those rumors. In Sao Paolo to promote the Brazilian opening of I Am Legend, he responded to the Spielberg question by saying:

“When Steve is ready he will send it. I don’t know specifics, story, anything, but he told me the filming dates, so I can be free to do it. It’s not a 100% sure thing yet, but I’m confident.”

And speaking of I Am Legend, Collider also reports that director Francis Lawrence has confirmed the existence of an alternate ending for the film, one which is due for inclusion on the “second DVD release.” No details were given, although Smith did refer to the new ending as “less commercial,” so it’s probably safe to assume it hews a little closer to the ending of Richard Matheson‘s book.
