    Will Smith and director Jonathan Mostow have committed to Tonight, He Comes -- a development that has Columbia Pictures eyeing a production start in Los Angeles by next summer, reports Variety.

    Vince Gilligan rewrote Vincent Ngo's script. Sony Pictures Entertainment's Amy Pascal acquired the project earlier this year in a bidding battle.

    Smith will play a disaffected and underappreciated superhero in a mid-life crisis. Akiva Goldsman and Michael Mann will produce with Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner, James Lassiter.

    Smith just completed starring for Columbia with son Jaden and Thandie Newton in The Pursuit of Happyness, a Gabrielle Muccino-directed drama.

    Mostow will push back two projects: Swiss Family Robinson, a film he rewrote with Sam Montgomery for Disney and Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, and Terminator 4.

    Mostow did Breakdown w/Kurt 'Kurt Rusell' Rusell, which was great, and Terminator 3, which wasn't.

    Muccino Reteaming with Smith on Tonight

    Source: The Hollywood Reporter
    April 28, 2006



    Helmer Gabriele Muccino is reteaming with Will Smith for Columbia Pictures' action drama Tonight, He Comes, says The Hollywood Reporter. The two recently wrapped the drama The Pursuit of Happyness for the studio.

    Writen by Vince Gilligan and Vincent Ngo, "Tonight" centers on a tortured superhero who crash-lands in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, and tries to transform himself by romancing an alluring housewife, causing chaos in the city.

    Akiva Goldsman and Michael Mann are producing alongside Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner, James Lassiter. Jonathan Mostow, who previously was attached to direct the film, and Richard Saperstein are executive producing.

    Muccino will begin pre-production on "Tonight" after he finishes post-production on "Happyness," which is scheduled for a December 15 release. The studio is eyeing an early 2007 start date for "Tonight."

    That's so interesting given mention of Muccino in the first post, when Mostow was supposed to direct.

    I really hope this means they recast I Am Legend. I realize they probably won't but I'm still hoping. I like Will Smith, but he's just soooo wrong for IAL.

    They won't, he'll do this and then I Am Legend after that (Although it makes much more sense to do I Am Legend 1st and then this one, but what do i know).

    Berg in Talks to Direct Tonight, He Comes
    Source: TMZ
    October 12, 2006


    TMZ is reporting that Columbia Pictures' Tonight, He Comes is about to get its fourth director. The site says that Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, The Rundown) is close to making a deal to direct the Will Smith superhero film.

    The movie was originally set up at Artisan Entertainment, with Michael Mann directing and producing. When Mann decided to make Miami Vice instead, Artisan dumped the project. Mann and producer Akiva Goldsman took it to Columbia, and promptly hired Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines director Jonathan Mostow and Will Smith. Mostow exited the project due to creative differences, and Smith's most recent director, Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness) would attach for several weeks before splitting amicably.

    Writen by Vince Gilligan and Vincent Ngo, the film centers on a tortured superhero who crash-lands in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, and tries to transform himself by romancing an alluring housewife, causing chaos in the city.

    Goldsman and Mann are producing alongside Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner, James Lassiter. Mostow and Richard Saperstein are executive producing.

    Why is Columbia pictures pushing so hard for this movie? I swear, they went through a billion directors already!

    Obviously it's to capitlalize on the superhero craze but because of the studio's effort, this better be a friggin' good movie when it comes out.

    Berg has come a long way since Very Bad Things, a film that could have been a career killer for any up and coming director (I've always had a soft spot for it, though). The Rundown was fun action old-school action romp, and Friday Night Lights was a solid and earnest sports drama. I'm looking forward to the film, and if Berg stays on to direct, I'll be optimistic. Will better be bulking up again. He looks like he's back to his Fresh Prince frame in Pursuit of Happyness.

    Why I have feeling that this movie with every new day turns into another Indy 4? Seriously, they both have the same situation (the only difference is that Indy 4 has problems with screenplay, not with the director).

    Berg Confirmed for Tonight, He Comes
    Source: Variety
    October 16, 2006


    Variety has confirmed that Columbia Pictures has set Peter Berg to direct Tonight, He Comes, the long-gestating film that will star Will Smith as a superhero in existential crisis.

    The film begins shooting in May for a summer 2008 release. Akiva Goldsman, Michael Mann, James Lassiter and Smith produce.

    The quartet of producers have supervised myriad Vince Gilligan rewrites that accentuated the superhero's love affair with a married housewife. That has turned the latter role into one coveted by actresses. Charlize Theron is the favorite to take the job.

    Berg's name surfaced two weeks ago, but his deal took time as Sony labored to keep a fiscal rein on a film that will have as many visual effects as any superhero movie but a storyline that's far less predictable. Smith's character is a drinking, smoking womanizer whose lifestyle is closer to rock star than do-gooder. The public is as sick of him as he is of them, until he finds a special connection with the married housewife.

    The script will be further honed while Will Smith shoots I Am Legend in New York until March. They will jump right into Tonight, He Comes, which will be set in Los Angeles.

    Geesh this sounds like a porno title so much. That would a be perfect movie for the movies with a porn title thread. No change would be needed.

    Production Weekly says that Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman will star opposite Will Smith in director Peter Berg's superhero drama, Tonight, He Comes, from Columbia Pictures.

    Smith plays a down-and-out superhero who has a bad image with the public because he causes a lot of collateral damage while he solves crime, and he's an alcoholic. Bateman plays a corporate public relations consultant, who after being rescued by Smith tries to repay him by revamping his image. But while Bateman is trying to repair Smith's reputation the superhero is secretly romancing Bateman's alluring wife played by Theron.

    Shooting will start early May in Los Angeles. The studio is targeting a July 2, 2008 release.

    I'm looking forward to this film, because it sounds unique for a superhero picture. Plus, we haven't seen many original non-comic superheroes, so it'll be interesting to see a original creation. I just hope it's geared more towards drama, than comedy. The fact that it'll have as much visual effects "as any other superhero film" is exciting as well.

    It is a pretty cool concept and it'll be interesting to see how they set the tone as well as how they incorporate action into it

    It sounds very interesting.
    And i really like the idea of a drama, with a superhero as the main character.

    Michael Bluth joins the Fresh Prince in TONIGHT, HE COMES!!!


    Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with my first Jason Bateman related post since I finished the last season of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!!! Of course I loved it and wish I wasn't so Tardy McLatepants when it comes to 99% of TV, so I could have joined the fight to keep it on the air. But I can talk about Bateman's career upswing. I've covered him in MR. MAGORIUM'S WONDER EMPORIUM a few times and now he's just been added to the cast of the best dirty title big studio movie ever, TONIGHT, HE COMES, alongside Will Smith. Charlize Theron is also still in talks with Columbia to co-star, which would mean a mini-Season 3 reunion for her and Bateman.
    The flick is about a middle-aged superhero (Smith) who's down on his luck. His fans are disillusioned, his life crumbling. Enter Bateman as a PR man who works to bring Smith's superhero character back to his prime, all the while Smith is putting moves on Bateman's wife.
    Peter Berg (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, VERY BAD THINGS, THE RUNDOWN) directs.
