Default Re: M. Night Shyamalan's One Thousand A.E.

The film centers on a father-son duo who crash-land on Earth one thousand years after humans have abandoned the planet. With his father seriously injured, the young boy must set out to find help on the now strange and harsh planet.

Stephen Gaghan(Traffic,Syriana) to Help with One Thousand AE Script

Stephen Gaghan has completed a polish of Sony Pictures and Overbrook Entertainment's futuristic sci-fi pic "One Thousand A.E.," which will be directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan was credited as the sole writer on the first nine films he directed, but his latest, "A.E.," was scripted by Gary Whitta ("The Book of Eli"). Shyamalan rewrote the screenplay to fit his needs, but Gaghan was tasked with getting the script in shooting shape. He turned his revisions in to the studio nearly a month ago and may continue to work with Shyamalan to fine-tune the current draft as the pic's February start date draws near.
Will and Jaden Smith are set to star as a father and son who crash-land on Earth one thousand years after mankind has abandoned the planet. The crash leaves the elder Smith badly injured, and it's up to the boy to find help in what is now a strange and dangerous place.
The duo previously shared the screen in Sony's 2006 drama "The Pursuit of Happyness."
Shyamalan and Will Smith are producing with the latter's Overbrook partners James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Gaghan, who won a best-adapted screenplay Oscar for "Traffic," is developing two projects as a director: a WB pic about a Mexican cartel, and Flashlight Pictures' indie drama about a Snakehead who trafficks in human cargo from China. His last bigscreen project was as writer-helmer of Warner Bros.' 2005 drama "Syriana."
