Will Smith to Star in "The City That Sailed"
The film follows a young girl who lives in London and makes an odd wish to have Manhattan break off and sail toward her. Smith presumably will play the street musician and father of the young girl who will save the day. According to Deadline, Shawn Levy has been tapped to develop and direct City That Sailed, the 20th Century Fox adventure pic. Audrey Wells is penning the script for the tentpole and Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment will produce. The pic reteams Levy and Fox, where his 21 Laps banner is based. They begin production early next year on the third installment of the lucrative Night At The Museum franchise that is set for a Christmas 2014 release. Smith’s name had been attached to this project for some time among many starring vehicles — as far back as 2010, after finishing up shooting Men In Black 3. This makes him officially aboard.
