Will Smith is set to re-team with his "I Am Legend" director Francis Lawrence for the fantasy drama "The City That Sailed" says The Hollywood Reporter.
The script follows a New York City street magician whose daughter, because of family circumstances, lives in England. In exploring a lighthouse one day, the girl discovers a room with magic candles and wishes to be reunited with her father, causing the island of Manhattan to break away and drift across the Pond.
"Ocean's Thirteen" writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien will rewrite a script that Andrew Niccol came up with.
At first glance this sounds pretty hokey to me...even for a a fantasy flick. Smith can (and probably will find a way to) make it work...
Lawrence sees the film as a potential directorial vehicle.
