The studio is currently keeping the story details of Colossus a secret. Will Smith will play Dr. Charles Forbin, a role originated by Eric Braeden (Titanic; Mr. Mom). In the original, Dr. Forbin is the creator of an artificially intelligent hyper-communication electronic media distribution system that grows to have a mind of its own and plots to kill off all of mankind. Just as in I Am Legend, Will Smith's Forbin is one of the few survivors of a massive viral attack, and the only one with the knowledge to destroy the computer.
Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are both producers on this futuristic thriller. The film will be distributed by Universal Entertainment.
