Will Smith's got a new movie -- but no Broadway play

Will Smith’s spokesperson confirmed a Deadline report that the elder Smith is attached to star in The Legend of Cain, an epic version of the Bible’s Cain and Abel tale with a “vampiric twist.” (Smith would play the sinful Cain.)

UPDATE: Will Smith’s spokesperson denied a report in Michael Riedel’s N.Y. Post On Broadway column that Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith have been in conversations to play Stanley and Stella Kowalski in a 2011 Broadway revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. Movie or play, I’m about ready for a Will Smith fix soon. How about you?
