I Am Legend trailer for the 2007 film starring Will Smith

Will Smith has delighted fans as he appeared to confirm a sequel to I Am Legend alongside Black Panther star Michael B Jordan.

It has been reported that Will, 53, will be producing the film alongside 35-year-old Michael, according to US website Deadline.

In apparent confirmation of the news, Will posted an image to his social media accounts showing a deserted city street reminiscent of the original 2007 film, and tagged Michael on the post.

The original film was adapted from Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name, in which US Army virologist Robert Neville, played by Will, tries to navigate and survive in a post-apocalyptic New York City.

The basis of the story was that humanity was largely wiped out by a virus meant to cure cancer, but Neville finds himself immune and works to develop a cure while defending himself against mysterious creatures.

It was a box office hit on both sides of the Atlantic, and its opening was at the time the biggest ever released for a December film in the United States.

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, who adapted the original film, is reportedly returning to write the follow-up and produce the film.

According to reports, no director was selected for the first installment of Francis Lawrence, who was behind the 2011 romantic drama Water For Elephants and three of the four Hunger Games films.

In February, Will won Best Male Actor in a Leading Role at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards for playing the father of tennis aces Venus and Serena Williams in the film King Richard, marking his first SAG win in three nominations.

Will also has a Best Actor nomination at the Oscars for the role.
