Will jayden smith shyamalan Will Smith and his talented spawn Jaden Smith are in pursuit of another big-screen collaboration -- this time with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan.

In the film, set a thousand years in the future, the Smiths will play an estranged father and son navigating a desolate planet Earth after a spacecraft crash. Jaden's mom and Will's wife, Jada Pinkett, will serve as a producer.

"The chance to make a scary, science-fiction film starring Jaden and Will is my dream project," Shyamalan said in a statement from Columbia Pictures.

Will and Jaden first appeared together in the 2006 drama "The Pursuit of Happyness." At 12, Jaden is a breakout star in his own right, with 2010's "The Karate Kid" under his belt. 

Jaden's litte sister Willow, became a musical sensation with her last year's hit "Whip My Hair."
