Itís not until December 14 that moviegoers finally can see "I Am Legend" come to the surface yet a sequel has already been prepared to be developed at Warner Bros. Pictures by screenwriter Mark Protosevich for sure.

According to Los Angeles Times, the man has pitched the company on a follow-up to the action horror thriller although no deal has yet been finalized. Protosevich, a native of Chicago, Illinois, previously got hired for four different times to work on the script, which was at one time optioned by 20th Century Fox with talk of Ridley Scott and Arnold Schwarzenegger as director and star, respectively.

Based on Richard Matheson's classic 1954 novel, "Legend" follows a military scientist named Robert Neville as he becomes the only survivor of an apocalypse caused by a large epidemic of a bacterium of which symptoms are very similar to vampirism. It is unknown yet how Protosevich will extend the story of Nevilleís struggle to survive against a mutant populace.

They should just do the original Script Mark Protosevich wrote. Batman has been re-invented a few times.

A sequel is a very good idea for this movie if you look at the trailers there were two or three that had Neville surrounded by the infected, they were within inches of his face while he was standing up, with mouths open ready to take a few bites out of him, also there was a very big explosion that also was not in the movie so the screen writers do have some parts in the trailers to use for the new movie, this was not in the movie they can use that as a basis for their new movie! I look forward to seeing it and I also hope that they make a TV series, I like movies where mankind go to the brink, and by the grace of GOD get a second chance to follow what he wants for us!

There must have been someone else outside that came to investigate the explosions in the city, he Neville throw his grenade toward the middle of the infected to get the biggest effect or Alice and the boy would be eaten, they were knocked out until morning and left in the walls of the lab. Neville is surrounded by three of the infected in his destroyed lab he was knocked out during a second and bigger explosion that came from outside to blow the walls down he got knocked out and is drag from the lab by an unknown savior. It has been two weeks and he awakes to find him self with a small group of survivors that are heading to the colony that Alice spoke. During his stay in the colony he has been trying to perfect the process of his cute, so from time to time he and his team have to go out and trap new subjects for his experiments. Every time they go out the infected track them, and they come ever closer to the colony, during his last trek to find a new subject and while he had him at the lab he discovered that they are changing. He is in a race against time because his antivirus cure will only work for a little time, the virus is in a constant state of change they are mutating, it could be tomor

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).
