I Am Legend, starring Will Smith and adapted on a novel by Richard Matheson, was one of the most successful movies of 2007, earning $585 million around the world.
It’s surprising that despite the success of I Am Legend, Will Smith’s Dr. Robert Neville’s battle against the zombie-like vampires known as Darkseekers in the film never resulted in a sequel… until now. Hollywood executives have finally given the go-ahead for a sequel many years after the original film’s release, proving that indeed, times have changed since the 2000s.
We’ve compiled all you need to know about one of the most anticipated upcoming films, starring Will Smith in his return to the genre of vampire flicks. We’ve covered every infected detail about I Am Legend 2, including the release date, cast, and story.
I Am Legend 2 Is Confirmed
On March 4, 2022, news outlets reported that Warner Bros. was hard at work on I Am Legend 2. If you liked the first I Am Legend movie, you’ll be happy to hear that screenwriter Akiva Goldsman will be back to write the sequel.
Several years after the success of the first I Am Legend film, rumors circulated about a prequel film that would feature Will Smith, but the project never came to fruition. Updates on I Am Legend 2 are appearing more frequently, but whether or not director Francis Lawrence will return is still unclear; no contract for his return has been signed as of yet.
I Am Legend 2 Release Date
Even though it’s fantastic news that Will Smith will be back for I Am Legend 2, the sequel still doesn’t have a release date. However, writer Akiva Goldsman hinted that the sequel was being rushed as part of his new first-look agreement with Warner Bros., in an interview with Deadline.

If the sequel has finally emerged from the depths of production hell, we can probably expect to see I Am Legend 2 in theaters sometime around the year 2026. Since extensive digital effects would be required, post-production is also expected to take a considerable amount of time after Goldsman finishes writing the script.
