The Legend on the Way

Francis Lawrence has signed on to direct Richard Matheson's classic horror / sci-fi novel "I Am Legend"

Francis Lawrence isn't a legend. Well, at least he could later on be one as he has signed on to direct the long-time-shelved "I Am Legend," which is based on Richard Matheson's classic horror / sci-fi novel of the same title. The story actually had been filmed twice before, but neither one could gain success.

Now, as Lawrence is going to direct, let's hope it will result better as he has planned to rewrite the script over the next few months, with filming due to start sometime next year. "I Am Legend" follows Robert Nevill, the last living man on Earth who struggles to survive in a world full of vampires.

    Oh great. Looks like another poor adaptation of Richard Matheson's classic 1954 novel. Can't Hollywood get it right? You would think they'd learn after previous pitiful adaptations, The Omega Man (1971) and The Last Man On Earth (1964).
