Word is it may be developed as a vehicle for Karate Kid star Jaden Smith. Though there aren’t many details yet about the script — which is being penned by writers Ahmet Zappa and Michael Wilson — the combination of Will Smith’s name, the witness-relocation-program premise, and monsters sounds a little bit like a kiddie version of Men in Black, doesn’t it? With Will Smith about to go into production on Men in Black III, you’ve got to wonder if young Jaden isn’t studying his dad’s playbook and thinking maybe MRP could be the next MIB. What do you think, PopWatchers? Does the idea of Jaden Smith, monster witness relocator, sound intriguing to you?
