Will Smith Reteams with "I Am Legend" Director! They're Set to Split Off Manhattan! 


Will Smith and director Francis Lawrence are back together again.

The two worked on "I Am Legend," and now, both will be working on "City that Sailed."

The premise is intriguing -- a father and daughter living on opposite sides of the ocean love each other so strongly that it causes Manhattan to split off and float across the Atlantic.

So Manhattan is the city that sailed...aw....

This project is currently setup at 20th Century Fox and Smith is producing, and may be the star.

The script will be rewritten by "Ocean's Thirteen" writers Brian Koppleman and David Levien. "Truman Show's" Andrew Niccol originally wrote the script.

Right now, Lawrence is also courting Reese Witherspoon to star in "Water for Elephants," an adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel that the director is set to helm. The actress hasn't committed yet.
