Several news networks are reporting that the original ending to “I Am Legend” was changed due to a leak by actor Will Smith at a recent press conference in Tokyo. Director Francis Lawrence told Sci Fi Wire last week in a press conference, “I don’t want to actually discuss the ending, just because I don’t want, I want people to make up their own minds, but maybe there’ll be an alternate version at some point.” So, what did Will Smith inadvertently leak? Who knows… The big news is that he leaked an ending, but I don’t think anyone has a clue on what he leaked…except maybe a few folks in Tokyo.
The film follows Robert Neville (Will Smith) a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague — The Infected — lurk in the shadows… watching Neville’s every move… waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered… and quickly running out of time.
The film premieres on December 14th in the US and Japan.
