In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Child Star Jaden Smith (Karate Kid) revealed that his the next film project may be 1000 A.E.,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Jaden: “We’re reading the script right now. I don’t want to give it away because that wouldn’t be tight, but it’s set in the future and it’s about a journey.”

Shyamalan has been secretive about this project except to say that it will be a science fiction film. “1000 AE” is being developed by Overbrook Entertainment, the production company owned by Will Smith, James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz and Jada Pinkett Smith.
