COLOSSUS Remake Gets Rewrite, Will Smith Still Attached to Star

By AMC March 18, 2013

It looks like Will Smith will be taking a break from solely focusing on his kids careers to get back to the big-screen. The actor was last seen in "Men in Black 3", which marked the first film in four years that he starred in. We'll soon see him in the M. Night Shyamalan-directed "After Earth", starring opposite his son Jaden.

We've heard Smith is very passionate about the "Annie" remake he's producing, which will star Oscar-nominee Quvenzhane Wallis for a Christmas 2014 release. Beyond the aforementioned and a small role in Akiva Goldsman's "Winter's Tale", it's been rather quiet on the Smith front but now another project with him still attached to star, is gaining momentum.

It has just been reported that Ed Solomon, who wrote "I Am Legend" starring Smith, was brought on to rewrite the script for "Colossus". The 1970's remake has Smith still rumored to star as Dr. Charles Forbin, who creates a computer that takes over the world so he must destroy it in result.

The film has been in development since 2007 with Ron Howard then linked to helm. Howard is now only attached to produce so it will be interesting to see if he still ends up directing or if someone else steps in to take it over.

Now that Soloman is attached and has a previous relationship with Smith, it makes the film actually coming to fruition seem all the more likely.
