The story goes that Cain from the bible(Abel’s brother and son of Adam and Eve) was cursed by God with a mark that made him live forever as a punishment for murdering his brother. This resulted in Cain being the first vampire. This is the focus of the vampire epic coming our way from Will Smith. Check out the news about the film below.
According to The Wrap, Sony Pictures Entertainment is moving forward with The Redemption of Cain, an epic retelling of the Biblical tale of sibling rivalry. The project, which is in development, is aiming to begin filming in July 2013. The film, which tells the story of Cain and Abel with a vampiric twist, is looking at shooting in London and Jordan with the exteriors shot in Morocco. Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment is producing the film. Francine Maisler is coming on to cast the film in the next few weeks.
Reports surfaced earlier this summer saying Smith wanted to direct the film. Two years ago he was reportedly going to star in and produce the project, which was then called Legend of Cain, for Overbrook, based on a script by Caleeb Pinkett.
If done right, this film could be a huge hit. If done wrong, well God cursed Cain, wonder if he will curse Will Smith for screwing up his story.
