COLOSSUS Remake Gets Rewrite, Will Smith Still Attached to Star

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.

Are you looking forward to this remake starring Smith? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
