Legend of Cain Movie

Legend of Cain movieWill Smith wants to revisit the Bible, well not the whole book: he "only" wants to revisit the myth of Cain and Abel. He's indeed interested in producing and starring in the movie Legend of Cain, an epic re-telling of the Biblical sibling tale, this time with a vampiric twist... The film would be based on a script by Caleeb Pinkett (the young brother of Will Smith's wife), Dan Knauf and Andrea Berloff.

I've no doubt Actor Will Smith who's a damn talented actor could transform that story into a hit. But I kind of disagree with the premise of the film: do they have to contort and subvert the Bible just for entertainment's sake?

Well, let's wait for more details. Depending on the script, it could still respect the message of the Bible to a certain extent.

What do you think of Will Smith's movie Legend of Cain: good idea or blasphemous?
