Will Smith Thinking American Can

Will Smith, to be seen later this year in M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth, is still looking to potentially star in Hurricane Katrina true story American Can.  The film will tell the true story of former marine John Keller who, when the hurricane hit, helped the residents of his building, American Can, survive by moving all 150 of them, many of them old and infirm, to a safe height up the building to avoid the rising water while coordinating airdrops onto the roof.  Oh and all the while he managed to fend off the threat of looters.  It’s not just Hollywood who can do heroic.  At one point Denzel Washington was looking to star but that incarnation never came to fruition.  Now Smith is looking to with Last Samuari and Blood Diamond director Ed Zwick looking to direct.  There are also rumours that Smith might also star in The Accountant as a government money man who also doubles as an assassin.  He was also linked last week to replace Ben Affleck in con-man movie Focus.  As for films he’s definitely in we’ll see him in Winter’s Tale later this year.  Source – Deadline
