Will Smith to Take Manhattan on a Joyride Across the Ocean

will smithI’m not sure about this Will, it sounds very After Earth ‘esque. And while I’m sure Willow is lovely, DON’T.EVEN.THINK.ABOUT.IT!

That bit where Bugs Bunny takes a handsaw to the state of Florida, casting it forth into the sea? Will Smith and director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, The Internship) are gonna do that to Manhattan in City That Sailed. (No way this movie’s not getting a The before the title at some point.) When Smith began eyeing the project in 2009, it was about a street magician breaking the island off and guiding it to London to reunite with his daughter; the new description says it’ll involve a father and daughter captaining the metropolis together. Either way, you’re imagining 13-year-old Willow Smith for the part, even though she hasn’t demonstrated as much love for the making-blockbusters-with-dad pastime as Jaden has. That’s fine. Let’s go straight to 10-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, who honed her fantasy chops in 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild before scooping up the Annie remake’s lead role … from Willow.
