It was Will Smith himself who announced that the screenplay of I am legend 2 it has finally arrived.

The news of a sequel had taken everyone by surprise; in fact, few expected that this story could continue. Instead it will be exactly like this.
The words of Will Smith | I Am Legend 2: finally there is a screenplay
It was right Will Smithalso the film’s producer, to announce the arrival of the script, during the Red Sea Film Festival. These are his words:
I need to get on the phone with Michael B. Jordan to talk about I Am Legend 2. The script just arrived but maybe I’m saying too much. You have to be an expert on I Am Legend to know this, but if in the film version my character dies, in the DVD edition there is an alternative ending, in which he remains alive. So we will follow the DVD version. I can’t say anything else, but Michael B. Jordan is in the cast.
But what do we know about this new chapter? While some actors are itching to return to this set, we can tell you, as already announced by Will Smith, that the events will be based on the alternative ending of the first film, distributed in the DVD version and also available online. This decision will allow the protagonist to return, alongside a new character, played by Michael B. Jordan. Regarding the plot, he also expressed his opinion Akiva Goldsmanscreenwriter of the film:
The new film will be set a few decades later than the first. I’m obsessed with The Last of Us, where we only see the world after the apocalypse and especially after a period of 20-30 years. We see how the Earth reclaims her world, little by little. There is something beautiful in the question of how man distances himself from being its primary inhabitant. This thing will be seen very well in New York. I don’t know if they’ll go up to the Empire State Building, but the possibilities are endless. We will go to the heart of Matheson’s original story and connect to the alternative ending compared to the ending that arrived in theaters. What Matheson was talking about was that man’s time on the planet while the dominant species, his, had come to an end. This is a really interesting thing we’re about to explore. There will be a little more fidelity to the original text.
