Helmer Gabriele Muccino is reteaming with Will Smith for Columbia Pictures’ action drama Tonight, He Comes, says The Hollywood Reporter. The two recently wrapped the drama “The Pursuit of Happyness” for the studio.
Writen by Vince Gilligan and Vincent Ngo, “Tonight” centers on a tortured superhero who crash-lands in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, and tries to transform himself by romancing an alluring housewife, causing chaos in the city.
Akiva Goldsman and Michael Mann are producing alongside Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner, James Lassiter. Jonathan Mostow, who previously was attached to direct the film, and Richard Saperstein are executive producing.
Muccino will begin pre-production on “Tonight” after he finishes post-production on “Happyness,” which is scheduled for a December 15 release. The studio is eyeing an early 2007 start date for “Tonight.”
