A representative for Smith did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Smith does not have an official deal in place but he is in the process of coming aboard. Coincidentally, he was attached to star in “Selling Time” several years ago before scheduling conflicts got in the way.

Several A-list filmmakers are now circling the movie, though no decision has been made yet.

You last saw Smith on the big screen (kind of) when he starred in After Earth sat in a broken down spaceship so that you could watch him watch his marginally talented son star in After Earth. Hooray nepotism!

Right now, Smith's producing the Annie remake through his production company Overbrook Entertainment. You'll next see him in Winter's Tale and/or Focus. [The Wrap]
