Shyamalan, best known for great movies like The Sixth Sense and some not-so-great movies like The Happening, is sticking to the genre he knows best. The untitled movie is a futuristic sci-fi story set 1,000 years set in the future. A young boy and his father, presumably Smith and Smith, crash into an unknown, empty Earth. NewsFeed assumes there will be a twist ending.

Jaden’s mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, is co-producing the Shyamalan flick, along with dad Will Smith himself. Jaden is no stranger to acting either. He starred in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid.
