Will Smith, son Jaden here meeting with Shyamalan

Will Smith and son Jaden, who starred in "The Karate Kid" remake, are in the area meeting with director M. Night Shyamalan.

The Smiths are slated to co-star in an untitled sci-fi film that Shyamalan will direct. The film is set 1,000 years from now. Jaden will play a young boy on an abandoned planet, with Will playing his dad, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The pair previously played father and son in "The Pursuit of Happyness."

Yesterday Shyamalan was spotted location-scouting at the old 3M Factory in Bristol, where he shot "Lady in the Water" in 2005. We hear that Will Smith is expected to check out the location later this week.
