I Am Legend Producer Says New Sequel Will Follow Alternate Ending

Producer Akiva Goldsman has some major updates to share about the upcoming I Am Legend sequel. In a recent interview with Deadline, Goldsman shared that the film will use the original movie’s alternate ending. In the alternate ending, available on the DVD, Will Smith’s character Dr. Robert Neville escapes to freedom rather than sacrificing himself. Goldsman, who is serving as co-writer and producer of the film, explained that the new movie will “trace back to the original Matheson book… What Matheson was talking about was that man’s time on the planet as the dominant species had come to an end. That’s a really interesting thing we’re going to get to explore. There will be a little more fidelity to the original text.” Smith will return for the sequel and star alongside Michael B. Jordan.
