Talking with Deadline, Goldsman said, “This will start a few decades later than the first. I’m obsessed with ‘The Last of Us,’ where we see the world just post-apocalypse but also after a 20 to 30-year lapse; you see how the earth reclaims the world, and there’s something beautiful in the question of, as man steps away from being the primary tenant, what happens?”

To summarize, the upcoming movie I Am Legend 2 is expected to draw inspiration from the HBO series in terms of style and atmosphere, as revealed by the producer and screenwriter. Although Akiva Goldsman did not reveal any details about the plot, he did mention that the movie would adapt Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel with the same title.

“That will be especially visual in New York. I don’t know if they’ll climb up to the Empire State Building, but the possibilities are endless. We trace back to the original [Richard] Matheson book, and the alternate ending as opposed to the released ending in the original film. 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.”

While there is no official synopsis for the sequel, Goldsman hinted that the plot would take place several decades after the conclusion of the first chapter. The movie’s plot will likely keep fans on the edge of their seats with its engaging storyline and powerful performances from the lead actors.

As fans eagerly await more details about I Am Legend 2, it remains to be seen how the sequel will build upon the first movie’s success and surpass the expectations of audiences worldwide.

The cast of I Am Legend 2

Will Smith is all set to reprise his role as scientist Robert Neville in the upcoming movie I Am Legend 2. However, viewers might be curious to know how Smith’s character will return to the screen, considering he died in the first film. 

The writers have confirmed that the sequel will pick up from the alternate ending of the first movie, which more closely follows the original novel by Richard Matheson. In this ending, Smith’s character survives and embarks on a journey to find a survivors’ camp.

Apart from Smith, the only other cast member confirmed for the movie is Michael B. Jordan, although his role is yet to be announced. Both Smith and Jordan are also producers of the movie. 

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Smith revealed that Jordan had contributed to the sequel’s concept, which he described as “really, really cool.” Despite initially planning to leave the franchise alone, Smith changed his mind after hearing the idea.
