Will Smith and Shawn Levy Join CITY THAT SAILED
Will Smith and Shawn Levy have joined The City That Sailed according to Variety. The fantasy-adventure film is being developed at 20th Century Fox. City That Sailed is finally leaving port after being in development with Fox sine 2008.
Will Smith and James Lassiter are producing the film through their Overbrook Entertainment banner. Shawn Levy will direct under his 21 Shingles company. The script is being penned by Audrey Wells about “the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean, uniting a father and daughter.”
Smith will next be seen in Winter’s Tale, which will hopefully do better at the box office than After Earth. Levy’s last film was This Is Where I Leave You for Warner Bros. Smith has not had a major blockbuster for a few years. Levy did a great job with Real Steel, so he will hopefully do well again in this sci-fi fantasy genre.
