Another installment of I Am Legend is in the works after Warner Bros. signed deals with the original film's co-writer and producer Akiva Goldsman as well as star Will Smith's production company Overbrook Entertainment .

The 2007 movie starred Smith as Robert Neville, seemingly the last man standing in a world over run by a plague and its resultant mutant monsters.

Though it grossed $585 million worldwide, the potential to expand on I Am Legend was seen as limited given the fact that Smith's character bites the dust at the end of the film.

Smith has not yet committed to reprising his role and is waiting to see the completed script, according to Deadline.
