Will Smith to portray real-life Hurricane Katrina hero in new filmMay 21st, 2009 - 12:41 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 21 (ANI): ‘Hancock’ star Will Smith will portray a real-life Hurricane Katrina hero in a new film written.
The film will be written and directed by The Rookie screenwriter John Lee Hancock, reports Contactmusic.
It will be about ex-Marine John Keller, who helped rescue more than 200 of his neighbours in Louisiana, New Orleans, when they were left stranded by the devastation of Katrina in 2005.
Meanwhile, Smith has joined the likes of stars vying to become the first black James Bond, and has claimed that he’s the best choice for the iconic spy-role.
Rap mogul Diddy and Jamie Foxx have already forwarded their names as a possible replacement for the current 007, Daniel Craig.
And recently, ‘Obsessed’ star Idris Elba had claimed that he would be a better choice because he was British.
However, the ‘I am Legend’ star, considered to be the most bankable star in showbiz, has said that he can be the best choice for producers.
He said: “Puff probably lives the most like James Bond and Jamie Foxx got the swagger for James Bond. He can sing too, so he can add a new element to Bond, wooing the ladies.”
He added: “But I think I can guarantee the box office!” (ANI)
