Indian origin Hollywood director M.Night Shyamalan is all set with his next magnum opus 'After Earth' which will see the super talented father so duo Will Smith and Jaden Smith back onscreen this 7th June 2013.
The sci-fi adventure is set in a future where mankind has fled Earth. Will and his real-life son Jaden play estranged father and son military men who crash-land on the abandoned planet.
Scenes depicting Earth as filled with giant fearsome animals were shot in the jungles of Costa Rica. We hear that some of the scenes were in fact quite dangerous for son Jaden Smith, reveals dad Will!
In fact there "were a couple of scenes that represented probably my individual worst display of parenting in cinematic history. A couple of those, if I had to do again, I would have done a little differently," revealed the global superstar.
Will and Jaden apparently shot a scene up a tree riddled with poisonous snakes!!!
"There are these snakes called fer-de-lances, and a fer-de-lance is the second most poisonous snake on Earth. We had snake wranglers on the set, six guys (who) would just walk around all the time and go... thump!" Will Smith said.
"So there was a scene, and the snake wrangler came over and said, 'You know the tree that Jaden's about to do the shot in? We got, uh, a few snakes... 'I said, 'Well, like two?' He said, 'We got ... maybe five today. You know, there's other trees. Jaden comes on the set and I was like, 'Well, let's just roll, we're here. Jaden, quick, just get up there, just get the scene! Now that I think about it, we shouldn't have done a couple of those shots," he laughed.
But just like his talented father, Jaden threw fear to the winds and performed all scenes with sheer determination!!
