Will Smith: Cain of Bible's Cain & Abel!

Will Smith will star as the title character in The Legend Of Cain, a re-telling of the Biblical sibling rivalry tale.

The caveat? The story will have a vampire twist. Yes, more vampires!!!

Biblical tale: Cain, the older son of Adam and Eve, kills younger brother Abel out of jealousy and anger.

According to Deadline, Will will also produce with Overbrook Entertainment partners Jada Pinkett Smith (his wife), James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of a vampire version of the Cain & Abel story?

  • shenanyginz

    Fish .hehehehe.my body nice come see me hot hot hot

    The vampire twist is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. It doesn’t make sense either. I’d love this if it was just a normal retelling of the story because I think Will’s the perfect actor for the job. Think I’ll skip this one, sadly.

  • jaye

    That’s just stupid. He needs to find Jesus.

  • offtheproperty

    I guess he thinks he looks good. But, no.

  • Mzblahzae

    This sounds so beneath Will Smith for a career move this is the kind of thing a unproven actor has to do… I dont know what he and his people are thinking Im going to guess he wanted to get it made produce it with his awesome wife and friends but they wouldnt greenlight the film unless he stars in it so he is. It just sounds like a very very bad idea. To many vampire films ugh
    Now I wouldnt mind an original vampire film something that is groundbreaking but this is not it.
    Bad idea!!!!

  • Anthony

    I don’t really get it with the Vampire twist.. but at the same time I can’t imagine Will smith in this role and don’t think he can pull it off

  • Brightside

    Can’t say it floats my boat! Never really believed in all that made up Bible cr*p anyway and sprinkling it with vampires doesn’t make the idea sound any more watchable.

  • Dreads

    Vampire twist? Really?! In a biblical story? HA! I’ve seen it all. Now, what? We are all vampire descent? Haha. Yeah, right. Umm, it sounds ridiculous. No, silly. No, downright STUPID. Enough with all this “vampire” bull$hit, please! I don’t even like vampires anymore. Enough is enough! I still wouldn’t have watched this movie anyway since I ha enough with the Bible too XD. This smells crap, seriously. Hope that’s a joke ’cause it’ll turn out to be a big ass joke of a film !

    i just hope that they will not change the real history.
    if you need the true just read the Koran.

    No Way !!! Vampires again !!
    Now I’m so tired about vampires. It’s getting boring to use them all the time anywhere. ENOUGH !!!

  • scorpius07

    They’re pretty much taking the premise of the game franchise Vampire: The Masquerade. Seriously Will Smith?

  • What???

    Straight Blasphemeny!!

  • the truth

    no no no

  • not hating, just saying

    YES WILL SMITH IS COMING BACK TO THE BIG SCREEN!!!

    WE CAN NOW REJOICE!

  • olivia

    I love the idea, in many stories the first vampire was Cain, he was condemmed by God to walk the erath for eternity for having killed his brother. This really sounds promising.

  • http://Scott4567 eagle one

    Ummmm………What? *flips channel*

  • Times a tickin

    sounds dumb, maybe he should stick to Scientology with his bum buddy Tommy girl?

  • Jes

    im all for retelling the story.. I love how they are bringing good christian films to the big screen :) However, def not with vampires!! that doesnt make any sense.. that obviously does not tie in with the Bible.

    A movie about vampires fine.. but not with the Bible :(

  • Jaded

    I remember the basis for this story from Vampire: The Masquerade. The original vampires are the decedents of Cain, called Cananites. Cain was punished for killing Able by having to walk the earth forever and never allowed to see daylight again. After hundreds of years he became lonely and made children thus the other vampires. In Vampire: The Masquerade there are also various clan of vampires. It’s kind of a cool premise and the television show was pretty good, but was cancelled due to the untimely death of the lead during hiatus. If this movie is based on that it should be pretty good.

  • TOOKIE

    This is blase phony…….I know Scientology’s don’t believe in God. If they want to make a religion movie then make one about their own cult.

  • josephine

    even if u don’t believe what the bible says, this storyline is so way out that the words ‘bible’ n ‘biblical’ should not be used in this article at all.

    @TOOKIE:
    tookie, maybe they know no-one’s gonna go watch anything to do with scientology. look at tom cruise’s “day and knight” – he’s not a box office draw anymore . imo, that’s because he’s too closely associated with that cult (a cult which, by the way, has very aggressive and rude spokespeople)

  • AJ

    Ultimate blasphemy

  • imo

    Will just want to carrier sucide cause he just tired of being successful. Scientologist in twisted bible stories not good.

  • chelsey

    why the EFF are they making a biblical story into a freakin VAMPIRE movie?!

  • interesting

    now that’s a vampire movie i’d watch

  • Rocky

    Think I’ll pass on this one. Will lost it for me when he hooked a seat on Tom’s space ship then lies to everyone.
