Academy Award winner Will Smith continues to put his name on upcoming projects.
Now, the Hollywood star is looking to join a superhero-esque property, joining forces with Ms. Marvel director and four-time Emmy and two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for 'Brilliance'.
'Brilliance' talks about a world where 1% of the world's children were born with powerful gifts.
Called ‘Brilliants,’ they are carefully tracked by the government who fear how society will deal with superpowered members of the public. And what these ‘Brilliants’ will decide to do with their gifts.
Will Smith is currently on board as a producer and if he does decide to also star, will play Nick Cooper, who is tasked with hunting down Brilliants who plan to use their abilities for nefarious reasons.
According to Deadline, "The agent is himself an abnorm, with a gift for predictive analysis that allows him to see what will happen before it happens and react preemptively. He is also the father of a Brilliant daughter.”
'Brilliance' has been described as a passion project for Will Smith.
Following his Oscar win for King Richard, the next big release for Will Smith following the infamous incident at the Academy Awards will be 'Emancipation' from director Antoine Fuqua.
