Smith will also be joining the star studded cast consisting of Jennifer Connelly, Keanu Reeves, Kathy Bates and the Golden Globe winner Jon Hamm.

"The Day The Earth Stood Still" resolves around the humanoid alien which arrivals on Earth triggers a global commotion as governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind his appearance.
